We’re having a party!!
It might not feel like it, friends, but it’s been 25 years! Christians in Schools Trust has been serving Stockport for generations, and we are so pleased to be able to share this precious memory with you all.
To honour it, we are holding an evening of celebration to which we are inviting all of you, our remarkable supporters. Paper invites have been sent out to those not online, and to those of you reading this email, I really hope that many of you will be able to RSVP yes and join us in thanksgiving and joy on the 16th of May. This is not just a blog post, but an official invite which is only being sent to our supporters. This evening is as much about honouring you as honouring our history, and I truly am hoping that all of you can join us for this special event.
To reiterate the details:
16th of May, 7pm for a 7:30pm start, held at Stockport Baptist Church.
Please RSVP to email@example.com by the 28th of February, 2018.
There will be worship, videos, prayers, speakers, refreshments, and goodie bags, so don’t miss out!
Please don’t forget about our Commissioning Service this coming Sunday!
Let’s support and honour Josh as he expresses his committment both to the role, but also to taking on the responsibility of bringing Jesus to the children of Stockport on behalf of us, the Church. Let’s encourage him and support him by our presence.
Dear supporters, your prayers were an UNBELIEVABLE blessing to us over the last two weeks. There was never a time in schools where we were without volunteers, church support, teacher’s encouragement, and the overwhelming enthusiasm of the students. It has been such a tremendous blessing to bring the bible to young people in this way, and to see the response they have had to learning about God’s word in a new way. Undoubtably, my most encouraging moment of the two weeks, a moment that made all the stress and hard work worth it, was going back to a school we had visited a week earlier with the Storytelling project, and hearing that some students had been so excited to read the full version of the book that we had gifted to their school library, that they had gone home and ordered their own copies online! It was wonderful to hear such genuine enthusiasm and impatience from the children to spend time reading about Jesus.
So once again, THANK YOU! There were moments in the project when I definitely felt the strength of the Lord, and I know that was because of the prayer and the support of you all.
We are so blessed by you, and so I hope and pray that God himself continues to bless you with the strength with which he blessed us all.
