Retreat Weekend

   This Friday, we are taking students on the first ever Emmaus Student Ministries weekend retreat.  The theme is called, "24 A Day With God."  We've got a decent crowd going, and hopefully a good enough mix that they will all enjoy the time together and be challenged and encouraged.  I am starting to feel a little bit stressed though because it is all coming up so fast and it seems like there is still so much to do!  I'll be helping with worship and teaching two of the three sessions.  We still have a worship practice to go, some forms and money not turned in yet, shopping and vehicles that we need to arrange if more kids sign up...busy busy!  Times like these are when I wouldn't mind being full time at the church.

   If you are willing, please pray that things would come together and we would do everything with excellence.  Pray that students would be drawn closer to the heart of God. Pray that meaningful relationships would be built among the students, as well as between leaders and students.  Pray that those of us teaching and leading worship or games would not be a distraction to what God really has for these students.  Pray for safety.  Pray for fun!
