While only kids (and those lucky school teachers) have been on actual summer holiday, the rest of us have tried to capture the mood of Summer as much as we can: backyard barbeques, pool days, lazy days at the beach, sleeping in, hiking and travel. Summer still has 24 days left, but the beginning of school signifies the end of the summer. What old patterns are you falling back into? Probably a series of alarm clocks, school and sports schedules, and a return to the weekly activities that make up the bulk of our daily lives.
Have you considered falling into new habits this year? Most people think of fall as signaling the beginning of the end of the year, or the beginning of the rush toward the holidays. But fall is a time to consider new beginnings as well.
I hope that this year you will consider joining us for a new year of Wednesday night ministry at Sunrise. We have great things planned for our elementary boys and girls clubs. This fall the boys will be learning how to make step stools and talk about fire safety while learning Biblical values and being mentored by amazing men. The girls will be learning foundational truths about faith and their identity in Christ, doing some fun crafting and build relationships with other girls and the women who are investing in their lives.
Grown-ups can participate in various activities on campus including women’s Bible studies, exercise classes and open gym, choir, and Sunrise Common (open foyer for building relationships, drinking coffee, and well, you decide). And of course, start your night off in Sunrise Café, because who wants to cook dinner on a Wednesday night anyway?
There are so many ways we can choose to spend our time, but this year, let’s go “Falling Together”!
