Greetings Stride Parent/Volunteer,
Momentum is the Stride Student Ministry’s newsletter, packed with updates and distributed monthly to parents and volunteers.
This month (August), in light of our annual Re:Focus event wherein ministry leaders cast a vision to be carried through the next year, I would love to share a brief synopsis of our vision for the next year as a student (and next generation) ministry. Aligned with the theme of our summer retreat, this next year’s vision is focused on faith-filled work: responding to the glory of the Gospel by faithfully working to magnify, share, reveal, advocate for, defend, and disciple others through the beauty and riches of the Good News.
Please join us in this new vision by praying for hearts to not only receive Jesus by learning and loving Him but living faithfully for Him—and in doing so, truly meeting our ministry’s mission
I would also like to invite parents into this vision through two service opportunities: First, we are searching for someone who has a heart to teach alongside Steve Bentz and lead the high school Sunday School hour. Secondly, we are searching for someone with a similar heart to help lead the middle school Sunday School hour.
Please join us in praying over these needs and, if you’ve any interest in filling any of them for a semester/year, please let me know.
