Dear Faith Family,

Summer is of my favorite times of the year!  Yes, it is hot!  And yes, the schedules are a little less predictable.   But, there are so many unique opportunities for God to work and move in the life of our faith family! 
 

This past week, I got to hang out with the youth for a night of worship at youth camp.  I was so blessed and encouraged by how our students were engaged and seeking the Lord.  They were clearly having a blast and growing together in their faith.  I am so thankful for Clayton and his leadership!  I’m also grateful for Linda Erlanson and her willingness to serve as a leader this week! 
 

Next week, our children will be heading off to Kid’s Camp!  What an incredible opportunity to invest in kids and to continue to point them to Jesus!  Please join us in praying for our kiddos and leaders!  Asking God to move in a powerful and life-transforming way through camp!
 

Finally, our Worship Pastor Search Team continues to work hard in our search for a new full-time Worship Pastor.  They have faithfully looked over resumes and are prayerfully discerning those they would like to interview.  Please pray for the team as they narrow the search and begin formal interviews.  We are still hoping to have a new Worship Pastor in place by the start of the fall semester, but we trust the Lord’s timing in each phase of this process.  Our team is doing an amazing job, and we are excited about the future ahead!
 

Don’t forget that Father’s Day is on Sunday!  I can’t wait to worship together!
 

You are loved!

Pastor Chris

Operation Christmas Child (OCC)

PLEASE HELP as we serve as a missionary throughout the world from Hewitt, TX. The Senior Adult  Ministry is doing just that by collecting items each month for our Operation Christmas Child Boxes.  During June, we are collecting toy dolls and cars/trucks for 100 boxes.  We are still in need of some of our previous months items -  jump ropes, flash lights, yoyos, stuffed animals in addition to the items for this month. Thank you for your helping support missions around the world.
Please be in prayer for our campers this week. 
We are excited to return to Mt. Lebanon this summer for pre-teen camp June 20-24.

Summer is officially here!  

The kids and grandkids are out of school.  The days are getting hotter and longer! And, the opportunity to serve together has never been easier! 

In early July, we are taking a small group of volunteers and families to serve in Glorieta, New Mexico.  We will be partnering with Glorieta Camps to do a variety of work-related projects.  There will be something for every skill level and age level.  Each family will have their own room to sleep and will provide own transportation to get there!  It might even be a great opportunity to tag on a few days for a family vacation in the mountains.  

The dates for the trip are July 2-8.  The cost is just $500 per family or $250 per couple.  This includes lodging, meals, and supplies!  You can’t get much better than that!  If money is a problem, we have some scholarships available!  

There is nothing like serving together with family and friends!  Don’t miss your opportunity!  We have a few spots left!  First come, first served!
