This is a day later than normal; yesterday I was in Lincoln, Illinois with 4 of our high school seniors visiting Lincoln Christian College and Seminary for a campus visitation day. We had an amazing time. We slept in the dorms, took a campus tour, attended some classes...it was a very good time. We also got in some good laughs and ate at Monical’s Pizza in Peoria. There are some pictures available over here.
Ministry Team Update:
We are looking for a few adults who will compliment our ministry team and help our students on the journey of Christ. We are ever striving for a goal of 1 adult/5students for our Wednesday night small groups. Beginning this week, our current ministry team will be working on a “Sponsor Handbook” for our adult leaders. If you join our ministry team, we’ll work with you to give you the resources you need to minister to our kids. If you are interested in joining our team in September, I urge you to please speak with me soon, so you can be a part of our Fall 2009 planning.
Ministry Team Meeting:
Our ministry team meets monthly. February’s meeting is coming up on the 22nd. At the beginning of the meeting, we’ll be finalizing the details for our upcoming Kansas Mission Trip. If you have some thoughts about it, please come and share. Then, hang around for some discussion. We’ll be done by 1:45.
