It’s hard to believe the summer of 2017 is almost over! Our theme for 2017 is “God is Able” which is based on Ephesians 3:20 that says, “Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than we ask or think…,” this summer we have been able to witness the power of God at work in our church family.
We praise God for His power being displayed this summer in and through our Rosemont Family. We are thankful for the decisions and commitments that have been made and will continue to be made. It is not about us, it’s all about Him!
Our summer began with a block party, a week of Vacation Bible School and a church picnic. We are in the midst of Wacky Wednesdays, Terrific Tuesdays, and Sunday on Mondays! We have experienced children’s camp at Cedarmore and Student Life Camp at Ridgecrest, NC. And we are not done!
We will attend a Legends Baseball game, have another church picnic, attend a Super Saturday training event, and look forward to the beginning of a new school year!
Pray for our teachers, students, and school leaders as they begin a new school year. Pray for our church family that we will find new ways to be salt and light in the world! (Matthew 5:14-15).
There will be many exciting opportunities that will present themselves in order that you and I can share the Good News of the Gospel! Be prepared! Be alert! Be ready! And remember, it’s all about Him, and not about us.
Why not start by bringing a friend with you to church on Sunday!
See you on Sunday,
We are only a few short weeks away from school starting back. Can you believe that? Summer seems to always fly by! I know a few of our students who are excited to go back to school soon, but most of them would like an extra month of summer! Either way, they’ll be back in the swing of things in no time!
We had a great month of July! Our Terrific Tuesday events were very successful! We had a big party for the Fourth of July, worked hard to pull weeds and cut branches at the Lexington Rescue Mission, and had a blast at our second annual Amazing Race! Congratulations to Bryson Baker, Corban Ellis, Emily Sallengs, and their driver Richard Proctor on their victory! We also had an amazing time at Student Life camp in Ridgecrest, North Carolina learning about the Word of God and the power it has over our lives today. We had an incredible summer at Rosemont, but we are looking forward to what God will do through the youth ministry this fall!
If you haven’t seen our new and improved youth room yet, I encourage you to
come see us down in the basement and check it out! As always, thank you for
your continued support of the youth ministry at Rosemont!
Dates to Remember:
Music & Worship Ministry
The Rosemont Chorale is taking a much-deserved break from rehearsals in July and will begin in August when our fall schedule resumes. We are always looking for new members and would love for anyone who loves to sing and lead in worship to join us! The Chorale continues to sing for our worship services and will also sing for an upcoming Monday night service. Children’s Choirs and Handbells will resume in August also.
Children & Families Ministry
What a great summer we are having in children’s ministry! We have already been on four Wacky Wednesdays and look forward to our remaining two and the Lexington Legends game on August 13. The kids have been to the Louisville Science Center in Louisville, Salato Wildlife Education Center and a tour of our state capital in Frankfort, Champs for skating, golf, and laser tag, and to the Southland Bowling Lanes for bowling and pizza! We have gotten to know several new kids who come with their friends and some who heard about our Wacky Wednesdays at VBS. Thanks to Richard Proctor for driving the bus on our two away trips.
Camp Cedarmore is Monday-Thursday, July 24-27, and the following kids are going: Saxton Merriman, Tyler and Micah Walter, Zoey Durham, Janeway Howard, Peyton Lunsford, Samantha Gross, Millie and Molly Matthews. Melissa Boyle and I are chaperones. Pray that these 9 children will grow closer to the Lord, have a wonderful and safe time, and that they will develop lifelong Christian friendships.
Congratulations to Samantha Gross on her profession of faith and baptism this month and to McKynzey Lewis on her profession of faith! Rosemont Baptist is very proud of you both!
