Sunday, September 13th, marks the beginning of our Sunday nights again. Everyone at the mission is eager to get back in the swing of things. It is such a huge blesssing and honor to worship with families that we partner with in the community.
For those of you not familiar with our Sunday nights, here is the schedule. Our youth ministry, Rock Island, will begin at 4:00 by having a study hall time for elementary through high school. This is an opportunity for tutoring for kids who may need help with a homework page or just procrastinated until Sunday. These kids are at risk of not turning in that important paper on Monday. Thank you to Ann, David, and Mary for being our first volunteers who’ve committed to consistently helping.
Then. at 6:00 we all come together for a family meal. Delicious meals are lovingly prepared by small groups from several churches in the metro. After our meal come the most important component of the evening, worship. Different worship teams lead us in a time of worship, prayer, teaching, and communion.
Following worship, the youth department is seeking volunteers who would like to expand the relationship they are building during the tutoring time. We envision some really strong friendships sprouting into more than just homework help. Our hope is that families or individuals would take their “favorite” kid to Braums! From there a friendship can blossom that will change a child’s life forever.
If you are returning or coming for the first time, welcome to our Sunday night family!
