Today I wanted to take a moment and share with you what has been going on in the Student Ministry at Open Door. Four18 has had one incredible and busy month. We have had some awesome things happen, so here we go…
- Roughly one month ago we had our Four18 Easter services. We had our student small groups praying for this service in the weeks leading up to it. They were “circling” their fellow students and friends. Their faith was at a whole ‘nother level and did God show up! We had our highest attendance of people, 108. Not only was it standing room only, we got to see 10 students step into a relationship with Jesus!!! It was an awesome experience to see God meet us as we stood on His promises in prayer.
- Overflow 2013 is rapidly approaching. July 15th seems to be creeping up on us quickly. If you are not familiar with Overflow, it is a week long youth camp that we host for our students. Last year was our first year putting on a camp and the process has been completely different the second time around. During our first year we took just over 40 students, and getting that number was pretty difficult. This year we announced Registration for camp was open, and within 2 months we exceeded capacity. We currently have 85 students signed up for Overflow and have just a few spots available. We are beyond pumped for camp! So Open Door family here is your warning: these students are going to come back and you better be ready to run with them because they are going to set this area on FIRE!
- Last week we had our last fundraiser for Overflow. We had our BBQ Dinner Fundraiser. I just want to say THANK YOU to all those who participated, volunteered, and bought a dinner. We went from selling 450 dinners last year to 1,330 dinners this year! I am stoked about that because each plate that was purchased went towards helping cut costs for students to go to camp. So thank you!
Thank you for taking the time to read about what’s going on with the students of Open Door. Continue to pray for us as we plan and get ready for camp this July. We believe this will be a catalyst in our year. We appreciate all your support!
