With the success of Sweet Home Alabama, we can see that God is working in many mighty ways. Our prayer is that we can stay in sync with Him and keep the momentum going. This is not going to be a year where things slow down in the summer!
We have great plans for the future, plans to evangelize a wide area and help the needy in a more substantial way. Our next step will be Generosity Sunday, which will provide funds above and beyond budget necessities. These funds will be added to the money collected last year, and the composite amount will enable us to better achieve our dreams for serving the Lord. The date of Generosity Sunday and more information will announced soon. Start planning to give!!
This is the summer to grow! Amazing opportunities are at hand. Campus students, sign up for the Campus Training Program at North River on May 13-18! This is an awesome course of study that equips you to be super effective in the campus ministry. Plus, you'll make tons of good friends from all over! This year's theme is "Counter Culture,"and participants will learn how to fight against the culture of the world. Housing is available! Talk to Mike and Marge Gross for more information.
Everyone, make plans to attend the REACH conference this summer. It is going to be INCREDIBLE!!! It's a great chance to hear some of the most inspiring teachers in our fellowship -- Shawn Wooten, Chip Mitchell and Frank Kim.You will see the launch of HOPE USA and a Global Missions Strategy to win the world. You'll worship with over 14,000 disciples.
There is still time to come up with the money to attend REACH. One of our sisters has been contacting numerous people, asking them if she can do anything for them to earn money. We encourage you to PRAY about going, brainstorm, get advice, and start working on about on ways to generate funds. We want everyone who desires to attend to have the ability to do so. A link for registration and more information is at the bottom of the newsletter.
Congratulations to Alan Bertl, husband of Yesenia Bertl, who successfully defended his dissertation in mathematics and now holds a PhD!
