For the majority of the year, we have a rhythm. Our days are mostly
dictable, scheduled, filled with routine, and within our expectations.
Then Summer hits and everything changes. Our kids are out of school, we
have vacation, camps, mission trips, or family reunions. It’s a welcomed break!
But if we’re not careful, we can easily allow our walk with Jesus to go on
break as well. Spiritually, we let our guard down. We become a little more re-
laxed and often disconnected from the church body by being out more than
But instead of allowing our walk with Jesus to go on break this Summer,
allow the LORD to break up your often mundane routine . Join the
Group you’ve been waiting to join. Begin serving in the ministry you have a
heart for. Connect with the new family that sits a few rows behind you.
Whatever you do, just be intentional to allow the LORD to work in you this
summer . 2 Timothy 4:2 encourages us to “be ready in season and out of sea-
son.” There is no offseason in following Jesus. Spiritually, there are no days off.
My prayer is that you stay prepared, remain hungry, and diligently seek the
LORD to make this a life - changing summer in your walk with Jesus!
Here are some ways to connect with us this JUNE.
VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL. This is always a special week of ministry for our
church family & community. Our VBS theme this year is Galactic Starveyors .
Please allow the LORD to use you by serving our kids through this ministry. We
need you! Our prayer is that this week will be life - changing for so many of our
kids & families. VBS will be June 5 - 8.
PRETEEN CAMP. Our 3 rd - 6 th grade students will be returning to Camp Renu at
Spring Lake June 27 - 30. This will be a wonderful week for our young students
to grow in the LORD. Pray our preteens will return from camp spiritually
challenged, prepared, and more mature as a result!
LIFE - GROUPS. We can’t encourage you enough to find community at New Life
this summer. LifeGroups is where community exists at church. They provide an
opportunity for us to know & be known, love and be loved, serve and be served,
and to celebrate our walk with Jesus together.
Glory to God in the highest!
