It was no accident that Jesus began to call people to follow

him from the very beginning of his public ministry. It was

and is part of his plan to offer people hope and a promise of

an enduring and eternal relationship with him. We have been considering what it means to follow him in this series of lessons. The biblical story of Jesus is the basis of our knowledge and faith. But the story continues....

 

This Sunday's lesson:

Paul's Personal Jesus Story

We're Celebrating our Graduates this Sunday

We want to take time this week to recognize and honor our wonderful children. Especially, we take pride in our graduates, who through a pandemic managed to complete their studies and achieve an important milestone in their preparation for adult life. We are proud of their effort, and we are grateful for having them in our lives. Our church family is enriched by them. And, we stand ready to support them as they move to the next challenges in their future. May God bless them and may they continue to be a blessing from God.

 

Psalm 127:3-5

Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them.

A Thank you from CASA of Central Texas!

Last year 600 children in foster care were served by 267 trained Court Appointed Special Advocates who engaged with the children's support networks to promote their safety and well-being. Out of 210 cases closed, 163 children were reunited with their parents or placed with relatives. Thank you for making our good work possible!

UPDATE FROM SHAWN:

We had 19 Young Adults at Gonzo this past weekend learning how to study the Bible and how to do a deep dive

into scripture to find answers we are looking for.

A quote from a young adult that attended the weekend!

"Hey Shawn, I just wanted to thank you for this weekend. It really has impacted me for the better. The tools you helped supply to me to help me dive in deeper with the word of God has been the greatest gift. Today I found myself in a panic with overwhelming emotion and decided to take a drive, found myself at this really nice spot within a park and just read the word of God and wrote to him like I was talking to a friend. So again, thank you"

 

God works in WONDERFUL ways and this is a great

reminder of why I do what I do!!!!!
