Summer is fast approaching, and I wanted to draw your attention to a few great opportunities to serve in the community at our 2012 Local Missions Summer Outreach. Each year my friend Todd Keeler organizes an outreach team whose aim is to:
• serve the local community and show the love of Christ
• host a Christian day camp at neighborhood sites (Emory Grove, Laytonia, Washington Grove)
• build an on-going ministry in the community
This years’ summer outreach week is July 7-14, and Todd needs the help of several dependable, creative, leadership-oriented individuals to make this event happen. Hope you’ll consider serving on this outreach team and passing the word on to others!
A few of the positions are more urgent than others, so if you’re ready to serve, check out the immediate needs listed directly below. If you’d like to serve later in the summer, check out the outreach week listing.
Thank you for continuing the mission to share the gospel and make disciples of Christ!
• Site Leaders: Work with the Mission Leader and Assistant Site Leader to plan for the week of outreach. Lead a group of youth in providing a Christian day camp for one of the neighborhood sites.

OneU, our evangelism ministry at University of Maryland-College Park, continues to be an effective means of preaching Christ and making disciples for the glory of God. There’s a ton of good, gospel work that God is doing on campus through the OneU staff (Jon Smith, Chavia Groveman, Angel Cabrera, Kelly Wilson and Paul Wilson) that I’m thanking God for regularly.
OneU has recently added a new staff member whose sole job is to be preaching Christ and continuing the mission to reach the lost and make disciples of all nations. His name is Daryl Boffman, and his goal is to begin serving on campus beginning this fall. He’s a good friend of mine, and has been a member of the church for about a year now. If you’re not currently supporting a OneU evangelist and/or would like to learn more about the ministry and how you can support it, download and read his newsletter (PDF, 590kb). He’d be happy to meet with you and talk about OneU and the work at UMD.
Soli Deo Gloria,

The mission of the church and the ministry is to make disciples of Christ. How will you participate in the mission?
