My heart is full! Last weekend we kicked off Sunday School, in what I would say is about the most normal environment since Covid, and it was a huge success! With 17, yes 17!, kids in our PreK-4th grade class and 12 in the Middle/High Youth class, we were so excited to welcome everyone back. About 7 teachers were in attendance to get to know all the children and youth and we had a wonderful time “Showing Our Spirit” to get excited for our Sunday School year. We saw Spirit for Sports, Schools, Flowers, Disney, Animals, Colors, and most importantly we all were blessed with the Holy Spirit! Games were played to get to know names and matching first letter Spirit Words. My heart was truly touched by all of those that came out and I look forward to getting to know everyone better and who knows, we may need more than two classes eventually. Please join me in praying that we continue to see all the smiling young faces come back. We want to share our Spirit with them too!
Now on to launching our Middle/High Youth Group, as we are excited to gather this Sunday, September 18th from 4:30-6:30pm at the Davidson College Lake Campus for food, fun, and games! Last year we had as many as 25+ at some of our Youth events and hope to see all of them and more back for a full, fun schedule planned for this year too. We are excited to have our 6th-12th graders back for more amazing adventures including Carrigan Farms, Scarowinds, Davidson Football, and much more. If you have or know of a youth that might be interested, please have them come and check it out and bring a friend if they like. We hope to see you at the Lake this weekend!
Most importantly, I want to thank the large team of support that I am blessed with to make all of this happen! We have amazing volunteers that support me in teaching Sunday School, planning and helping host youth events, providing meals, and so much more! Our wonderful staff that supports me and all our youth, children, and family programs and an awesome group of volunteers that make up our Family Ministry Support Team, who work behind the scenes to help coordinate and plan many of these events. I will say it again, my heart is full! Thank you!
