Dear Faith Family,

This weekend is one of my favorite times of the year. The same is for our students. This weekend is our annual IMPACT Weekend. This is a time where our students gather together for large group worship sessions and a teaching and then break into smaller groups to have deeper discussions in host homes. This year’s theme for the weekend is Together: Living in Christ-Centered Community. What makes this year even more special is that we are combining a total of 4 churches together with about 120 students in all. How fitting is it to have a theme Together and combine churches to join as one and worship the Lord. I am anticipating the Lord to do some great things this weekend and throughout the rest of the school year.

IMPACT WEEKEND - January 13-15

This year’s theme is TOGETHER. In our culture today, there is more division than there is unity. In all the division, the Gospel speak a profound truth: In Christ, we are united. We are together. We want to teach the students to embrace a Christ-Centered Community. We will be partnering with a few other churches in the area to encourage unity and togetherness in Christ. Those churches are Brazos Meadows BC, FBC China Springs, and Columbus Avenue BC.
