As we gear up for an exciting new year for our children and students ministries, I wanted to share briefly my vision for the student ministry going forward at Cedar Street. Our middle school students will continue to learn the core truths of our faith in our Flyte program led by our pastor, Bo Fulginiti. Starting on August 15, our high school ministry will be renamed Elevate.
I believe that names give purpose and identity and my vision for the student ministry at Cedar Street is that as a ministry we will seek to elevate Christ above all else. My prayer is that students will seek to elevate Christ in their school work, relationships, at home and on the ball field. Wherever they go, Christ will be glorified in their lives.
I am excited about the future as we seek to elevate Christ above all else and I am looking forward to seeing your children come to “comprehend with all the saints what is the length and width, height and depth of God’s love, and to know Christ’s love that surpasses knowledge, so that [they] may be filled with all the fullness of God” (Ephesians 3:18-19).
