Hello Church family! I hope this caller finds you doing well! We are getting ready to start the Temple Hill ministry and I am so excited for that. I can’t thank those of you enough who have made the decision to volunteer and help out the students and staff of this wonderful school. I think that this is a step in the right direction for the church. For far too long churches as a whole have gotten a bad reputation, and I believe by helping the students, staff, and parents of Unicoi county, we are doing exactly what the church was meant to do. We are here to take care of the people in order to show and share the love of Christ with them. Ultimately the goal is getting the gospel out of the church and to the people, and I truly believe this is a great place to start. Again, our desire is that every student that graduates from the youth ministry will be serving in some sort of ministry, and you guys are showing them another way to serve.  We believe that serving takes the words of Jesus and puts them into action in a very practical manner. So, as you take part in whatever ministry you are a part of please invite a young person to help you serve in the ministries you are a part of! I recently read an article talking about the importance of intergenerational relationships for the health of both parties. I can’t think of a better foundation for a relationship than serving together in the name of Jesus. There is something beautiful about the body of Christ coming together to be the hands and feet of Jesus, so please continue to be in prayer for opportunities to serve. Remember, saved people, serve people!

In His love
