It's Time to Celebrate!
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. ~John 1:14
Merry Christmas to all of our Campus Life Friends,
It’s time to celebrate! How wonderful it is to celebrate the birth of Christ Jesus, the Messiah. I hope that as we approach Christmas you will take the time to remember and marvel at the awesome God that we serve.
At Campus Life we are not only celebrating the birth of Jesus, but we are celebrating the incredible way God has continued to use this ministry throughout 2022. This past year we’ve had
thousands of ministry contacts. Our 12th annual Father Daughter Ball maxed out - again, and our 2nd annual Great Easter Egg hunt was a huge success. Our 2nd annual Kite Festival more
than doubled in size from 2021, and the Juvenile Jail ministry has been super successful at reaching into the lives of incarcerated children and youth. Our Summer Adventure Camp also reached capacity and our student leadership training grew with new students joining the team. Our monthly Spice of Life Luncheon continues to be a huge hit as is our Senior Connect. We have also taken some major steps in expanding our Senior Oasis program which visits people in assisted living facilities. All of this together has made 2022 a great year of ministry, and worth celebrating.
At a recent Bible study a gentleman said how thankful he was for Campus Life and what a big impact it has had on his life and his walk with Christ. Another young man told me that because of his earlier involvement with Campus Life he is now working in ministry overseas. Through this ministry and the relationships that have been forged, young people and adults are learning and growing in their faith. They are learning to deal with difficult, and sometimes tragic life issues in a Godly way and staying hungry to follow the Savior. Through your partnering with us God is moving and using the ministry of Campus Life.
Our annual Phoneless Phonathon is off to a great start. We are still a long way from our $75,000 goal, but God is a great provider through His people. We are trusting Him to meet the need.
Every dollar is very much appreciated, and your investment pays BIG dividends in the spiritual
lives of the youth and families of the area. Thank you to everyone who has or will soon help
us meet this necessary goal.
On behalf of Denise and myself, I want to say thank you for your prayers, support and encouragement for the ministry this year. May God richly bless you at Christmas and into 2023 as you are such a blessing to us. We wish you Peace, Hope and Joy this Christmas season. “For unto us is born this day a Savior...” Salvation through Jesus – what an incredible Christmas gift.
May you all have a Christ-centered Christmas.
Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year,
