1. This weekend is our first Kids’ Camp, called Camp Blast. Our Rising 3rd – 6th Graders will be going to Whispering Pines campground in Castallian Springs, Tennessee. I’m so thankful for Pastor Lee and Amy Moseley for leading this experience! Both of my boys and my two nephews will be attending this trip, so this is a special camp to me. Three of our pastors – Greg, Matt and Lee – will be preaching our services.
2. On Monday (July 22), our teenagers will be participating in the youth ministry’s first mission trip as they travel to Auburn, Alabama. Radius Camps has been creating mission experiences for teenagers for years, so our students will be blessed to get a mission trip and youth camp in one experience. This trip has incredible potential to impact our students, so pray with me!
3. Can you believe we’ll be sending our students back to school in three weeks?! To share His love with our community, we’ll have our annual Back-to-School Blessing on Saturday, July 27th at CIL. We’ll be providing backpacks full of school supplies to elementary, Jr. High and High School students, while supplies last. We’ll start the line at 11 a.m., but every year, people arrive early to stand in line. Gala Johnson is leading this ministry, and she will be giving out set up details in the coming days. We’ll have free lunch and blow up games so we can spend time with our friends from the community. It will be a special day!
If you want to participate by giving to the Back-to-School Blessing, each backpack with school supplies cost $20. Your donation is greatly appreciated!
