One more week for a lot of things.
One more week in Daniel. One more week until the interns get here. One more week until Promotion Sunday. A lot’s going on next week!
New Series. I’m really excited about our new series starting next week. I may let it slip in church tonight, but—if all goes according to plan—you will not find out about the new series until next week.
New Interns. Be sure to not only greet Bro. Garrett and Bro. Tim, but try to spend some time with them this summer. Whenever you can, get together with them and hang out. Ask them questions. Find out about how they went to Heartland, how God’s been using them and what they’ve been learning. Ask them what they wish they would have done differently in high school. Greet them every class. Learn more about them all the time.
Promotion Sunday. The new 7th graders will be entering class about 10-15 minutes late. When they come we’ll mingle, meet and greet and switch seats. I’d like every new 7th grader to be sitting by one of you, and you to be at least 3 seats away from where you always sit. I’ll announce after everyone’s seated that after Promotion Sunday, the back padded chairs are for the seniors if they want to sit in them, but on Promotion Sunday we won’t really follow that rule (and if you’re a senior, you don’t HAVE to sit in the back.)
I sure love you teens. This particular group assembled here today will never be together like this again. After this week, the whole mood and face of the Teens of Faith will change again, and it will be up to you to help mold and shape it into a godly, passionate group of teens. Don’t be a servant follower only. Choose to lead in your service and be an example servant.
CHOIR – Young Adults Choir will be concluding after our next song. We will resume practices after the Summer. If you’re 16+, you can join the adult choir at any time.
PROMOTION SUNDAY – 1 week away! We’ll be mixing up the seating that day, so prepare now to put the note into action. Maybe plan to have a new TOF class member sit by you.
YARD SALE – Saturday, June 8. Workday Thursday, June 6. Sleepover Friday night, June 7. If you want to borrow my truck to do pickups, let me know (scary!). We will do some pickups next week.
