Congratulations to 7th grader Mackenzie Skelton for being featured in Sports Illustrated Kids magazine this past summer. In each issue of Sports Illustrated Kids, three students who excel in sports, academics, and community service are featured. These young athletes do it all — on and off the field! Way to go Mackenzie!
High school students take a break from traditional academics to travel offset for a Spiritual retreat. The students had the privilege to hear from Pastor Tom Hudzina of Newtown Square, Pennsylvania. Pastor Tom spoke to the middle school students on Ephesians 2:10. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. This is a great encouragement to our school students as they mature and grow, but it is also a reminder to all of us. None of us have "arrived", no one is yet the person that God wants them to be. God has a distinct purpose for each of us that He has prepared for us long before we were born. The Greek word for "workmanship" is the same word where we derive the words "poem" and "poetry". A great piece of poetry is sometimes called a "masterpiece". We are God's masterpieces and he will continue to work in us. And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. (Phil. 1:6) Be encouraged, God will never stop working in us or through us.
