Guys leadership initiative

This is a weekend geared for 6th grade - 12 grade young men to better sharpen their talents for serving the Lord.  You won't want to miss being a part of this weekend.  This year we are looking at Noah and how he stood out from the rest of the world!  This weekend will better equip us to be the Christians Jesus calls us to be while becoming Leaders that we are training to be.  You will not want to miss this opportunity to be instructed by knowledgable men of God! We will focus on a few aspects of our leadership in worship such as song leading, praying, and delivering a message.  I hope that you will make this a priority to attend this summer.  I look forward to seeing you there!

Theme: 41

Theme Concept In the Bible, it rained for 40 days and 40 nights. Day 41 came and the rain stopped.   Moses committed murder & hid in the desert for 40 years. 41 came, and God called him to help rescue Israel. Moses went up on the mountain for 40 days. On day 41, he received the Ten Commandments.  The Israelites wandered in the wilderness for 40 years. Year 41, they walked into the Promised Land. Goliath taunted Israel for 40 days. Day 41 came, and David slew him. Jonah preached a message of repentance to Ninevah that destruction would come in 40 days. On day 41, God stopped His plan to destroy them. Jesus fasted and was tempted for 40 days. Day 41, and the devil fled. After His resurrection, Jesus appeared to His disciples for 40 days. On day 41, He ascended into Heaven. All this to say...don’t quit. The rain will stop, the giant will fall, and you will enter your “promised land.” Don't give up at 40.  41 is coming.
