New - Ministry Opportunity in Spain
IMB Missionary Dwight Williams will be leading a basketball camp for children and youth in Madrid. Last year over 300 children and youth spent a week playing basketball, cheerleading, learning English and hearing the Gospel.

This year, God has opened a most amazing door to hold the 2015 Upward Basketball Camp in Alcalá at the Pabellón Caja Madrid, which is a large, popular, sports facility.  The camp has been extended to two weeks- June 22 through July 3.

They need basketball coaches, ESL teachers, cheerleading instructors/helpers; you name it!  If the Lord is leading you to meet this need, please contact Robbyn Booker.  Individuals, families and church groups are all welcome.

Men’s Retreat in September

Mark your calendar for the Men’s Retreat, September 10-13.  In addition to time with the Lord, there will be several activities:  pistol/rifle/shotgun shooting, rappelling, zip lining, and the popular giant swing.  This year we are looking at allowing boys 16 years or older to join us as long as they are accompanied by father, uncle, grandfather, or male guardian.  If you are interested or have questions, please contact Brian Schipke.

Prayer Corner

This week meditate on  . . . 1 Corinthians 13:1-3

“If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.”  (NIV)
