MS Parent Letter: Summertime

Hey parents,

Summer is almost here! I’m so excited to begin our activities and Bibles studies. Our interns start next week and we are chomping at the bit to get things rolling. I’m also excited for the incoming 6th graders to join the middle school program. Please see below for our upcoming activities.

 

Sunday Class
Sundays at 9:30 a.m. in the Middle School Basement. Meets through June 24 (no meeting July 1 – August 12)
Join us for a time of community, a challenging message from Scripture, and small group discussion.

Generation to Generation

I can remember my first week as a youth minister at Eastminster. I was overwhelmed, in over my head, and learning through trial by fire. Six years later, I see the fruit of staying committed to a church family over an extended period of time. Through interim pastors, staff turnover and new mission statements, we have always had a steady consistency in our youth ministry, which I believe is the catalyst behind the sustainable growth we’ve been blessed to see. Recently, I was having coffee with a recent college graduate who had plans to go into youth ministry.

Two Calls to Prayer

Dear Eastminster family,

I’m calling our church body to two important times of prayer. The first is for Pastor Andrew Brunson, an EPC pastor who is incarcerated in Turkey. We are joining with the EPC in a concentrated time of prayer. From the EPC: "On April 16, 2018, EPC Teaching Elder Andrew Brunson will go on trial in Izmir, Turkey. If convicted of the charges in the 62-page indictment filed by the prosecutor, Andrew could be sentenced to 35 years in prison. The indictment charges Brunson with helping terrorist organizations and of trying to convert Turks to Christianity.
