We have all heard Billy’s Stewart’s familiar song which has the line: “Summertime, and the livin’ is easy.” “Easy” is never a word that I have attributed to the level of activity in the church during summer. Certainly, it is a different time. We take a hiatus from some of our regular programs and studies – but the church moves on in a dramatic way.
There are four specific things coming up – please be lifting them up in prayer:
AMERICAN INDIAN CHRISTIAN MISSION TRIP
Our team will be leaving June 4 for the American Indian Christian Mission at Show Low, Arizona. They will work on building projects, present a Vacation Bible School, and work hands on with adults and children. We are praying that the team makes a great impact during their time in Arizona.
VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL
F.R.O.G. is the theme for our Vacation Bible School. “Fully Relying On God.” The dates are June 5-9. Our building will be transformed into an environment that a frog could only dream about. All of this is put in place to creatively teach the truth of the Word of God to precious children that will fill our building.
ROUND LAKE CHRISTIAN CAMP
It is a great privilege for us to send young people to Round Lake Christian Camp. I am biased, but I think it is the greatest camp in the country. We will be sending day campers and full-week campers. There is no substitute for this experience, because the lives of young people are changed forever at camp.
We are excited that our students have the opportunity to participate in CIY Move. This is a great experience where they are exposed to great preaching and outstanding worship. They are presently having sessions called “Unity” on Wednesday evenings to prepare them for the experience. Please pray that lives are changed at CIY.
We are so happy to say that we never take our foot off of the gas pedal at Madison Christian Church. Please pray, and get involved where you can in these programs!
