Appalachian Trail Copper Basin Crisis Center Mission 2014

Ladies and Gentelmen,

Here is the details for the Copper Basin Crisis Center Mission Project that we are doing this year.  We will be going to the Crisis Center on Saturday, December 6th.  We will be leaving the church at 6:00 AM since this is a 3 hour trip.  The goal is to have things setup and going by 10:00.  We will be leaving around 4:00 and coming back to the church.

There is a form shown below that will allow you to sign-up and select what you would like to do while at the Crisis Center.  I need each person to sign-up with a position prior to going.  If a family of 4 is going to go, I need 4 people to have signed up.  This way I will know how many seats we need on the bus.

One last thing! We are going on a trip to help and minister to the people of the Appalachian area. We are not going on a trip to take photos of ourselves, post photos onto social media or exploit the lifestyles of the people in the area. With that said, I am asking you not to take photos or tweet about what is done there. We will take a group photo while there for a reminder.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Thanks,

Steve Blackston

Just as we have been here for a specific purpose, God also has a specific purpose for which He redeemed each one of us. He went to great lengths to ensure our redemption!

John 3:16

Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
16 “For God loved the world in this way: He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.

The Holy God so greatly loved a sinful, vile and wretched people that He would go to any depth and pay the ultimate price in order to rescue the lost. Christ sacrificed Himself, bearing not only the weight of the world’s sin, but also the wrath of God, so that we might be saved. He died so that we can have abundant life.

God, in Christ, has conquered Satan Continue reading

Day 3 of CentriKid 2014

Today has been absolutely amazing! Parents, you have some great kids at camp this year. Everyone is getting along without any drama and as of this very moment, no one is injured!!

Today the kids were learning that God reconciles through Jesus! John the Baptist chose to use an image that would be very familiar with his Jewish audience: “Lamb of God.” Lambs were sacrificed during Passover and were offered daily for the sins of Israel. John used this expression Continue reading
