Lord, Have Mercy!!! With the heat index last week hitting its highest mark of the summer, would you expect teenagers to 1) be at the pool, 2) stay inside in the a/c getting their summer reading done, or 3) pouring their hearts out serving others? If you said option 3, we need to talk!!!
Cornerstone Youth was represented by 23 6th-8th graders and 5 adult/college leaders serving with Radius Mission Camp here in our community.
Your M25 Mission Team had a great week serving among the homeless in Atlanta last week. As a matter of fact, if you were to ask any of us, we’d say that we are “Blessed and Highly Favored.” That is the common response that our friends at 7 Bridges to Recovery say every time someone asks “how are you.” With great enthusiasm, mind you. Here is a small glimpse of how our week went.
Have you ever experienced one of those weeks that will never be forgotten? Will you never forget that week because it was so awesome, because it was so NOT what you were expecting, or because you’ve tried everything to forget it but it just won’t go away from the memory bank?
May is such an exciting time of year! The weather is gorgeous, the flowers are beautiful. We get to celebrate Mother’s Day (loved the #cornerstonemoms photo booth pictures) and get to celebrate graduations as seniors take some of the biggest steps they’ll ever take! Sunday, May 17, during the 10:30 am services at Hamilton Road and Lee-Scott sites we will recognize the graduating High School Seniors!
Cornerstone Youth embarked on their Fall Leadership Retreat at Lay Lake in late October to rest, connect with one another, and be challenged to rise up as leaders among their peers, within Cornerstone Youth, and ultimately the next generation.
Phew, we are all finally home, showered and hopefully in bed at 12:30 AM. As I type this final update (although it feels like it is 8:30 AM and we should be eating breakfast), I am excited about the work that God is doing in Uganda and among our team members from the Senior Class of 2014 and it’s leaders.
