What a week we had at SonRise Camp in Anderson, Indiana! Check out our St. James Facebook page for more pictures of this awesome week. It is amazing to see how God works in each of us through this week, and I am so thankful to have the opportunity to be a part of this trip every year. Our youth and I are thankful for the continued support of the congregation for our annual Mission Trip! Please feel free to ask any one of the participants about the experience. I know they will love to share with you all about their week.
The mission trip also reminds me of the many ways we can serve in our own community. We are called as a congregation to proclaim and practice Christ's love and there are countless opportunities for us to do that. Not just for our youth, and not just in far off places...but each and every day for all of us.
Where is somewhere you can serve? Who can you touch with the love of Christ? Who needs to hear God's Word? I encourage you to seek out those places and people. Not only is it good for them, it will also change you!
And please pray that the work God did in the lives of our youth in Indiana will continue to grow in them as they return to their daily lives!
