I hope you’re all staying nice and dry this week! It’s hard to believe this Sunday will be our final week before move up. As we wrap up this year and prepare to move into the next, I would love to take a moment to reflect on all that God has done in and through TI this past year.

We have successfully finished one full year of our new curriculum. We started from the beginning in Genesis and this Sunday we will wrap up this current volume with Job. It has been awesome to hear how our kids have learned that every story points to Jesus. I’ve also heard how much you as leaders have taken away from it too. That is definitely a win-win! 

We have finished up year two of our Treasure Island training plan! This has included our first of the month meetings together and our third Sunday of the month time with Rich and “The Best Of” awards! We are so excited to continue these meetings as we move into the new year. 

We were able to take 91 of our 3rd-5th graders to overnight camp in June and last week we were able to host 123 of our K-3rd graders at our first ever day camp in Treasure Island. Both camps were incredible this year. We were able to see so many kids take a next step in their walk with God all while having an absolute blast!  We are already looking forward doing both camps next year.

We’ve had over 300 kids and families participate in service projects this year both in our church and in our community. Several families have made the decision to serve together regularly after seeing how simple and fun it is to make and impact together! 

I would love to invite you to share some of your favorite moments too! You all have the front row seats when it comes to relationships with our kids and we would love to celebrate the “wins” from this year with you! 

We can’t wait to see you all on Sunday for our last week before Move Up!!
