One of My Favorite Weeks of the Year is Here!

One of My Favorite Weeks of the Year is Here!

This upcoming week is City Week. City Week is an annual local missions outreach headed up by Ascend Student Ministries. Throughout the week Ascend students will be tackling various missions projects in our community, working alongside the Nature Coast Outreach Center, going door to door sharing the love of Jesus, and showing gestures of support to our local law-enforcement and emergency services heroes.

We will join Ascend on the Brooksville Courthouse steps next Wednesday, July 14 at 7pm for a citywide night of worship and prayer. Together with members of our community and churches we will pray for our city, our families, and our nation. This night has been the main event during City Week and is a beautiful expression of the ekklesia coming together to lift up the name of Jesus. Our campus activities will be suspended next Wednesday night and everyone is encouraged to join us for this powerful event. 

This year is especially significant for Jenna and me as our daughter is able to participate with Ascend for the very first time. As a dad, it warms my heart to see my little girl getting so involved in the outreach of our church. I know it means a lot to our other parents as well.

To kick off this week, Ascend Student Ministries is taking over the service on Sunday. That’s right! From the moment that you walk through the front door, worship, and the message, Ascend is in charge. It’s a total student Sunday take over!

We have such an amazing student ministry that is leading the way in our church towards outreach and going after 20,000 souls in our community. Let’s show them our full support by being present on Sunday ready to worship alongside these world changers. I couldn’t be more proud of them and I know you are as well!

Are you interested in volunteering for city week?
