Thank you for your prayers! Evangelina and Kelly are doing great! After 38 and a half hours of labor, she was born on March 21 at 9:06pm, weighing 8lbs 8oz, and measuring 20 inches long. And for several weeks, Kelly and I have been in baby boot camp; experiencing the joys and sleeplessness of child rearing☺. Evangelina is now almost one month old…wow, we cannot believe how the days (and nights) go by slow, but the month has gone by fast. We can’t wait to introduce everyone to our daughter!
School is winding down for the year and for many parents, they can’t believe how fast the years have gone by. Once your child was fascinated with dolls or Legos, but they are now in middle school and are fascinated with Facebook, Instagram or other boys and girls. You’re trying to place parental control on what they watch and explore on the internet. In the middle school ministry, we want to partner with parents as we teach students their call to be set apart by God, set apart for God and set apart to know God. In that, we are teaching them that everything we do is sacred. There is no difference between what they do on the internet or school and what they do at church. Whether they are a ball player, a musician, or a stellar student, they are all called to be disciples…the bible tells us in 1 Peter 4:11, “If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God…so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ.”– Chris

The Bible says that through Jesus Christ, we are fused together as a body of believers. We must be in Christ to be fused together with other believers. Our main goal in Fusion is for students to come to a saving relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Next, it is our goal to help students live for God and to be transformed and conformed to the image of Christ. By conforming to Christ, students will discover God’s unique plan and will for their lives so that they can live out God’s purpose that He has for each of them, while at the same time, they are being “fused” together by His Son.
So in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.– Romans 12:5
We do offer "Sunday School" classes which we call Connection Groups. These groups all meet before the Sunday morning services at either 8:00 am or 9:30 am. We've found that joining a Connection Group really helps one to grow, so find a Connection Group that fits you and come participate.
