Pastor Ed - Back to School
College students have begun classes and the elementary, junior high and high school students will soon be joining them. For some this is a big transition, for others it is just a promotion to the next grade. In all cases, it is a next step in their educational future.
Our students face many challenges as they begin a new school year. As a church, we need to keep these students in prayer. They will face such things as academic challenges, struggles with friends, figuring out where they belong, and many other things that go along with being in school.
Christian students have the opportunity to be missionaries on their campuses. Whether elementary school, junior high, high school, or college, they can represent Jesus to their friends every day. They will be with hundreds that do not know Jesus. Pray for wisdom, boldness and strength for these students.
Pray for our teachers. Prayer for our administrators. Pray for our students. Not just as the year starts, but remember them over the next several months. These campuses are huge mission fields and it will take us all to reach them with Jesus. I am excited about what a new school year will bring.
