It is hard to believe that summer is almost over. We have about one month left. Kids will start going back to school soon, youth group will start up again, and the leaves will begin falling off the trees. Over the next several weeks, my focus will be on two major things at RCC — the SalemFest 5K and planning for youth group this fall.
The second annual 5K will take place on September 18. Right now, we are still finding sponsors, which is a tough thing. I have learned more about this than I ever thought I would. It is definitely something they do not teach you in Bible college. Please keep this event in your prayers, and if you are nearby, consider either participating and/or volunteering. If you own a business, consider sponsoring this year’s race. For more info, head to http://www.salem5k.com.
Youth group planning takes a big step tomorrow night, as I will meet with our youth leaders to plan out the fall schedule of lessons. We will go through choices on curriculum topics, and we will discuss other ideas for the fall. One major thing we are considering adding is a high school retreat. As we discuss possible locations and dates, along with other plans, please keep this in your prayers.
Thanks again for all of your support and prayers! It is awesome to partner with both God and you in this ministry!
