We are almost to the half-way point of our summer and I thought I would give all of you a burst of encouragement to help you along. Make sure you stay involved in what’s going on around the church. We have much to see and do each week and we want our students to stay in touch with each other and with our youth functions and most of all God. We have been enjoying some great Christian movies the past couple of weeks and have several more to show later on in the summer once we get past Fourth of July. This week will be like a regular service with music and a devotion and maybe some other activities. With our new students moving up, we have a great opportunity for growth this summer if we all remain faithful each week. This becomes a good time to get to know each other away from the school atmosphere and get connected through the church. So don’t become lazy because we want you to be here each and every week. Even though this is the summer time, God wants us to keep Him in our sight. 1 Peter 5:8-9 says, “Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist his, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings.”
These verses remind us we are not alone in the world and the devil looks for the weak to destroy so we need to stick together and be strong in our faith so we do not become the devil’s prey. So please be faithful to God this summer and never lose sight of Him, because when you do, you can easily fall victim to the devil.
