Are you looking for a place to have dinner tonight? If so, stop by Crossroads and visit the Food Trucks that will be in our parking lot this evening form 5-8 PM.

This opportunity is sponsored by our Guatemala SERVE team and the proceeds will go to that mission. Here are your options - Flavour, Jambalaya Brothers, Stacey's Soul Food, Village Cafe and 1000 Shakes. This is awesome. We get served good food and at the same time we are serving those in Guatemala who cannot afford three healthy meals a day. That's a win-win!

This Sunday we are going to see the importance of looking back on what God has done before so that we can see how God is enabling us to do greater things both now and in the future. This is an important lesson for all of us to learn.

In our time together we also celebrate our graduates with a practical gift to help them remember that as they move on. God, who has brought them to this place and time, is also empowering them to do greater things with their lives in the days ahead. During Linger Longer we will have graduation cake and a time to be together. Maybe you can make it a goal to meet someone new this Sunday.

Speaking of students, there is a delicious and incredibly fun breakfast planned for them to kick off summer on June 9th at 10 AM. You don't want to miss this one! More information can be found here .

Families, mark your calendar for the Family Love in Action Retreat on July 13th. This will be at our house, Blueridge Summit Retreat, and it will be loaded with fun. Sign up here .

One last thing. During Vacation SERVE Camp, children will be serving Mobile Hope, Loudoun County Volunteer Fire and Rescue, 350 children in Uganda, our homeless brothers and sisters in DC, and learning about caring for the environment with Blueridge Wildlife Rescue Center. As the Body of Christ we are given the opportunity to SERVE together by purchasing 1,000 supplies. Together we are being invited to do greater things. You can purchase supplies here .

As always, I am excited to be with you this Sunday. If you can't be with us on Sunday, then maybe you can join us online.

Let's never stop growing in our love for God, others and ourselves. It's our most important work.

See you soon,
