Youth Group

On Saturday, May 3rd and Sunday, May 4th, our youth served our local community and raised some funds for their summer camp trip by running the concession stand for a softball tournament that was held at the Williamson county Sports Complex in Taylor.  The youth and their parents did an outstanding job serving hundreds of hungry and thirsty customers!

Thoughts for the month: 

  • When you can’t forgive someone, pray for them.  It may or may not change them, but it will always change you.
  • If you only pray when you are in trouble….you’re in trouble.
  • God is always doing 10,000 things in your life, and you may be aware of three of them.   
      -                                     John Piper
  • We aren’t called to be like other Christians; we are called to be like CHRIST.
  • The trouble with trouble is, it starts out as fun.

Have a blessed month,
Russel & Tammi
