Jake & Beau

Manschool wraps up this Wednesday

Please join us this Wednesday morning May 22nd as we wrap up the Spring session of Manschool and we break for the summer.

You’ll hear from Beau Hughes and his thoughts about the Become Good Soil intensive. We’ll go through some reminders of the ground we’ve covered this Spring.  It is amazing at how much territory we’ve covered.  We will also give you three things for your summer.

I think you will find this final session will be very encouraging.

are you in a battle right now?

Are you in a battle of any kind?

Is there a mountain in front of you that you have no idea how you’re going to get past?

Is your marriage in trouble?

Do you lay awake in bed at night worried?

What are you fearful of?

Respond below.  Write it down – not the issue itself – but rather, what it is you’re feeling.  Are you feeling God or is He nowhere to be found?  What are you doubting?  Is there hopelessness, despair, lostness?  Describe it.

Your answers will remain anonymous and won’t be posted on this site.  I’m gathering these answers for future reference in our discussion of DIRT.

Funeral Service for RJ Cummings

Image may contain: 1 person

The service for Carver’s RJ Cummings will be held this Saturday at 11am at Christ Community.  RJ graduated last year and played linebacker for Carver as well as basketball.  He was heading to Iowa to play football this fall but tragically, he was struck down by a bullet last Friday night.

The Carver family is in mourning.  We’ve been with the team this week, speaking to the team as a group and talking a good bit with Coach Arnold.

If you would like to support the Carver team and RJ’s family, please try to attend the service on Saturday.

Our work at Carver is never done.  We’ve only scratched the surface.  There is so much more we can be doing to impact these kids for Christ.  RJ’s death, while tragic, is also an opening for God to move upon the lives of this team.  In the human sense, his loss is a waste of a life but no tragedy is ever wasted with God.  He always moves.  He is sovereign.  He IS good.

Let’s support them on Saturday.
