Breakaway Teams

Here are the teams for Breakaway! First off, no I didn’t make the teams. Second, there will be about 60 other people on your team from other churches at camp. Third, be sure to get as much clothing and gear you can get that makes you blue/green dolphin/barracuda! I expect to see some awesome team spirit and representation from each of you!

And just so you know there are team games Sunday, Monday and Tuesday! So be ready to get cray all week long!

House Church Tomorrow

Tomorrow night is our first House Church of the summer! We will be at our house (Ben and Carrie’s) from 6-9pm. If you need directions, please email Ben at ben@concordlife.com. We will have pizza for everyone but we ask that you bring drinks or snacks to share with everyone. Look forward to seeing you at our house for a time of fellowship and worship!

Summer Calendars Have Arrived

CSM Summer activities are in full swing! During the summers at CSM it is our aim to make relationships and God’s Word the forefront of everything we do. Our schedule highlights this truth. We have opportunities for students to hang out and get to know one another on Monday mornings at “Mondays in Motion”. We give our students a chance to dig deeper into God’s Word on Thursday afternoons at “Bible and Biscotti”. Lastly we give students a chance to meet together, worship and hear a relevant message at “House Church” on Wednesday nights.

Our Summer Calendars have arrived. You can see the proof below and pick up your own printed copy at church in the Rafters, the office or the Information Table! I look forward to seeing each of you at all of the many things we have going on over the course of the summer months!

Parents! Have you read the latest newsletter? Well let me tell you, it is far greater than reading wanted ads! Some might say its slightly better than seeing movies in 3D! We will let you decide for yourself. Check it out by clicking here! Happy reading! (And if you don’t enjoy reading, don’t worry, we include pictures!)

Middle School Mission Trip

This past weekend we took our Middle School students up to North City for our annual mission trip. The students spent time at New City Fellowship where they learned about the history of racial tension in St. Louis. They were able to serve elderly folks in a nursing home as well as help a widow move out of her house. Our students also had a great opportunity to see many parts of St. Louis that have been forgotten and run down due to racial prejudice. It was wonderful to serve alongside the students and see them jump in with serving those in need.

A Night of Mystery | Invite Night

Next Wednesday, April 29th (Ben’s Birthday) is going to be our monthly Invite Night! This month we will see magician John Michael Hinton. John specializes in weaving the Gospel into his magic shows, and does a wonderful job. We encourage each of our students to bring a friend that doesn’t know Christ to hear the Gospel message.

The event is at Crestview Middle School. Because this out in Chesterfield, we will be taking vans to get there. We ask that everyone arrive at the church at 6:15pm so we can leave the church at 6:30pm. We will return back at the church by 9:15pm. There will be pizza for everyone after the show, but I would encourage everyone to eat a heavy snack beforehand because it will be late! The best part about all of this is it is totally FREE of charge! We look forward to seeing everyone there!
