Promotion Lunch for Rising 6th and 9th Grade Families

Dear Families with Rising 6th and 9th Graders,

The Woodmont Hills family ministry team (Julie Tuley, Jesse Baker, and David Sessions) deeply believes in the importance of moments that mark physical and spiritual growth in the lives of our younger family members. It is these rites of passage that remind us who we are and what we value, no matter where we find ourselves on our spiritual journey. Because these moments can be so important in spiritual formation, we would like to begin a new tradition with you as we lead into the new school year.

On Promotion Sunday, August 16th, we invite you to be a part of our first annual Promotion Blessing following 2nd service in room 205E. We will share in a potluck lunch where families can connect, learn more about the next phase of ministry their students will be joining, and participate in a blessing over this next chapter of life.

We would love for you all to join us and bring a dish to share. To see what is needed for the meal and sign up, you can click here: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0c4ca5a723aaf85-apotluck

Hope to see you there!

Jesse, Julie, and David

This picture has so many layers of meaning to me. There’s the obvious; its the first Woodmont Flag Football Championship team, it shows that no matter who you are or where you live, you’ve got a place at Woodmont. Then there’s the less obvious. There are stories I could tell about each young man in this picture; the way they’ve made me laugh, when they’ve made me re-examine my faith, and the times when we’ve cried together.

Well, this Sunday there’s going to be another layer added when the good-looking guy in the middle front, Noah Hernbeck, gets up in front of his entire church family and says, “From this day forward, the old me is dead. Today the me who lives only for Christ and his Kingdom is born.” Hallelujah!

Make plans to be at Woodmont this Sunday during second service.

Medina 2015, Homecoming

IMG_5462

Somewhere during the week I lost track of the day (and year). However, I assure you it was not for a lack of excitement or activity. More than anything it was because we were so blessed this week by the people we met at Medina Children’s Home and the work God called us to do. From our arrival on Sunday to departure Saturday, we witnessed God’s freeing and redemptive light in the hearts and stories of His children and we were reminded that, As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.

Thank you Father for blessing us with this opportunity to be salt and light in Medina. May your purpose at the home be achieved in a way that brings you glory and honor. Amen.

We return today (Saturday, July 18) on SW flight 4526 at 2:10 p.m.

Medina 2015, Day 5

Most of us started our morning with a hike up the hill (the not so small mountain) before the sun was even awake. We didn’t make it in time to see the sunrise. But it didn’t damage the view of the campus or the valley. We returned for breakfast and had a morning devotional before we broke out into our work crews. Some of us spent the day shoveling gravel, scraping tile, cooking, raking leaves, and removing glue from one of the cottages floors. Then we came back together for lunch that was spiced up by jalapeno pepper poppers! Then we went back to work and finished up all our jobs. After work we came together again to play with the kids while we treated the moms to a craft. We love the kids (they are insane!!) and we are not ready to go home. We are going to enjoy our last day here in the lovely little town of Medina, Texas.

Sincerely yours,

Gillian, Katherine, and Jax.

Medina 2015, Day 4

Today we woke up and ate breakfast at 7:30. Then we had a morning devotional about being present. We then set off to work various jobs including hauling rocks, scraping more tile, scraping tile glue and other miscellanies jobs. We took a break to eat a yummy oriental lunch including stir fry and wontons. It was delicious.

Brooke finally made it after getting much needed rest and we returned to our jobs for a few hours until it was time to get ready for chapel. Chapel was led by Stephen and our seniors. They even invited some of the little kids to join them on stage to sing the songs with them. Then we went to dinner with all the people on campus, including residents, mothers, and staff. We had a great time meeting new people and fellowshipping with them. We played on the basketball courts then went and had a group devotional before going off to bed. We are looking forward to the rest of the week.

Medina 2015, Day 4

Wednesday our seniors organized and led an incredible time of worship with the families at Arms of Hope. The songs, scripture, and message all centered around the them of “light”. The students planned and practiced for the worship while scrapping glue! It was a powerful time.

For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in out hearts to give us light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.” II Corinthians 4:6

No Youth Class Tonight

We won’t be having class tonight since so many are out on mission trips.
