Mdweek update: The Trail Student Ministries

Good afternoon,

Word for the Day: Romans 5:8
I have been reading through the book of Romans this week, and you know God’s Word is just amazing. I was especially touched by the familiar passage in Romans 5:8, that “God has demonstrated his love for us in this: while were still sinners, Christ died for us.” While we were powerless to change our relationship with God, God because of his love for us, and knowing our weaknesses, and our future failures, didn’t just meet us halfway, but we have God who was willing to go the distance. On the cross, Christ’s outstretched arms are God’s proof of his love. If you need a pick me up, look up and give thanks for God’s unending pursuit of you!!

FRI Nov. 12 – Laser Tag postponed (new date is December 10), I will be offering a showing of the movie, “To Save A Life,” for HS Kids and their parents. I think the age appropriateness of this film, that 7th-8th graders could come only if their parents can come. If those won’t work, I am willing to lend out this movie for you to watch as a family if need be.

FAMILY FOCUS: Tools, tips, and truth!
Parents, it is a privilege serving you and your family! I want to be a resource for you and your family. Your role as parent is the most important job when it comes to raising your children up in the faith! I hope this e-mail updates help, and check out the links to these newsletters. I find these helpful, and in our Wednesday update e-mails, I will try to include some links to good resources, instead of sending numerous e-mails a week!

I want to close with Romans 4:21, “21 being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised.” Are you fully persuaded that God has the power to do what He has promised?
