August Ministry Update

Our Student Ministry has officially begun and we have been very busy but having so much fun working with these students, their families and our community here at the TX-Mex border.  In the month of August, we had our "Parent's Meeting", took the kids to a Christian music concert, had our first "Man Cave" (a guys-only time of fellowship) and "Shine" (a girls-only time of fellowship), held our first "5th Quarter" after the first home football game for our town and we are holding a Contemporary Worship service each Sunday morning geared toward our students.


One of our main goals in working with these students is that they get a good Biblical foundation, understand what being a Christian means, and fully equip them to be able to share their faith with others.  To help accomplish these goals, are using "Explore the Bible" on Sunday mornings and are leading them on a book-by-book journey through scripture so that they understand each book of the Bible, the context in which it was written, and what they can learn from it.  Wednesday nights their class is "Biblical Foundations" focused on teaching them the essential truths of the Christian faith in a simple and life-changing way.  We also have 9 students who are currently taking a 13-week Discipleship program for students every Sunday afternoon.  It is our desire that the students that come through our ministry, be firm in their beliefs, equipped to share the gospel with others, and ready to be disciplemakers wherever God leads them in the world.
