03 Jul For Real
It’s amazing how time can fly by! We are already halfway into Clemson Summer LINK with only 4 weeks left and it feels like just yesterday that we began.
As soon as Summer LINK started, we hit the ground running. Within our first week, Crosspoint Church sent a team to partner with the White family as they plant Parkside Church in Atlanta, GA. While there we were able to help Parkside Church host a Family Fun Day and a Movie in the Park, in the center of the Atlanta area they are trying to reach. We spent most of our time canvassing and inviting people in the surrounding neighborhoods to these two events, so it was sweet to see the fruit of our labor as both events went wonderfully! This was an incredible time to be an encouragement to the White’s and to see the work God has already begun in Atlanta.
Upon our return from Atlanta, we settled into the specific ministry we would be serving in for the summer, which would primarily be either College Ministry, Youth Ministry, or Children’s Ministry. I have had the joy of serving with the Children’s Ministry. Currently, we are in the middle of VBS week! This has been an amazing week prepared and executed by many hands for the purpose of teaching children about who God is and what He has done for them. So far it’s been a hit and I have loved seeing new faces and having the time to get to know them.
This summer has been a refreshing time surrounded by incredible people. It’s been a blessing to serve alongside people that have a desire to know God and to make Him known. As we serve together I am encouraged by their faithfulness and I am challenged by their diligence. It is a reminder to me that I will fall short, that we will all fall short, but that God is gracious and loving and wants to help us. I am so thankful for this community and am so excited to see what else God has in store for us this summer!
Please join us in praying for:
- Joyful and loving hearts as we serve the Church and each other
- Opportunities and boldness to share the gospel with loved ones
- Parkside Church and the White family as they kick-off their first church services in August!

So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.
