New “Adopt” a College Student Ministry

Thank you to 26 families in our church who have “adopted” a total of 38 Westmont students!  We pray this will be an excellent opportunity for the families, the students, and the church as a whole to build relationships and build community. Our primary purpose of this ministry is for our church to love and pray for these students as they journey through this school year.  We have students who have just moved away from home for the first time as freshmen, seniors who will graduate soon and are looking ahead to what is next, and everyone in between.  Families who have “adopted” students have been asked to participate in a few specific ways including the following: 1) to invite their students over for two dinners a semester, 2) to send them a bit of encouragement during midterms and finals weeks (in the form of notes, scripture passages, and perhaps some study treats), 3) to find out what their students are involved in and support them (by attending athletic events, concerts, plays etc), and most importantly to pray for their students.

If you are interested in getting involved, I would encourage you to talk to families who are paired up with a student, and see how they could use your support.  If you want to get to know college students and get involved in their lives, then come check out Tapestry on Sundays at 5 pm.   We are very excited about this new ministry and opportunity to serve our community!

Blessings & Love!

Junior High Girls Retreat!

This weekend I had the privilege of taking 6 junior high girls to Forest Home for a girls retreat. The theme was Sparkle, inspired by the verse was “Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky as you hold firmly onto the Word of Life.” Philippines 2:15  Throughout the weekend we worshipped, learned about who Jesus is, talked about what is means to follow Him and love Him, zip-lined, swam, ate delicious food, had a pajama dance party, ate s’mores, stayed up late chatting, prayed, wore matching tie dye shirts, painted nails, braided hair and wore lots of SPARKLES!


Following Christ is a journey and I am so thrilled to see some of my girls continuing on this journey, and some of them thinking and praying about what it would mean to live for Jesus, and not for themselves.

One of our favorite worship songs from the weekend was “One Thing Remains” by Jesus Culture.  ( The chorus says:

“Your love never fails
It never gives up
It never runs out on me.”

Today I pray that these girls continue to know this truth as their pursue their Creator, the God of the Universe, the King of Kings.

Blessings & Love!

Photo Booth Fun!

Last Sunday we had an incredible carnival!  What a wonderful time of food, laughter, meeting new people, worshiping God, and just being silly 🙂  Although we won’t have a carnival EVERY week, we are planning some fun celebrations throughout the next few months.  Keep checking back for more details 🙂
