MISSIONS Well, the world didnt end and here we are in the New Year! It s an exciting time to think about what this year holds for our ministry, our church, and your student. Looking ahead, Im anticipating several events, but especially our mission trips to Guatemala and Tullahoma.
Were doing two Guatemala trips this year: one over spring break and one at the end of May. In the past weve not been able to accommodate all the students who would like to serve, so this year weve been able to expand our partnership to two trips. We are also looking forward to our Tullahoma mission trip July 15-19 as we continue to plant and sow the seeds of the gospel through Restoration Baptist Fellowship. These trips can be expensive and we try to help offset the costs by offering jobs such as Super Sale in January and other events later in spring.
This years Super Sale is January 19 and promises to be as great as ever. Not only are we anticipating several hundred shoppers, but it is also a great opportunity for your student to work volunteer hours to earn money towards their mission trip. Every dollar given at Super Sale goes to help send our students on mission this year.
Here is how you can help: 1) If your student hasnt signed up for a Guatemala trip, please do so ASAP. 2) Make sure your student signs up to work the Super Sale. 3) Inform your family, your neighbors, and your co-workers about donating items to sell or
coming by on the 19th to shop at Super Sale.
PRAY I encourage you to take a few minutes each day and pray for our student ministry transition. Although I am continuing to serve as our student pastor, we need significant prayer support as we seek Gods will for our next student pastor. Id like to personally invite you to participate in several prayer times where our students, our search team, and our parents will be praying through our transition and for our next student pastor. The dates and times are on the back of this newsletter. Join us in the journey towards the next chapter of our student ministry.
