The Parent Update//August 2016
(Thank you for taking time to read our Parent Update!! Here you will find upcoming event information, a helpful article on parenting your student and information on the series your student is currently engaging in our weekend services!!)
Hello Awesome Parents!
July was AWESOME and went by FAST in RSM!! We had a weekend message series called Life is a Highway, in which we talked about the spiritual practices, things like studying scripture, hearing from God, and meditating on God’s word, that move us down the road to spiritual maturity. It was really great!!
We also had our FIRST ANNUAL SOS (Summer of Service), during which nearly 200 students and leaders gathered to serve the Miami community in some really incredible ways!! If you want to get a glimpse of what happened during SOS, click here.
Thanks for your support and partnership in loving kids closer to Jesus!! And If you are ever interested in seeing updates or fun photos follow us at:
