New Life @ markaronowitz.com
After a few months of refreshing and transition into my new ministry I am excited to re-join the “regular bloggers” world. My blogging had become a very exciting part of my life; and although a break from it was nice, I missed it tremendously. Big news from 2nd this morning is the 5 day countdown to our Middle School trip to Great Escape @ Southwind in Ocklawaha, Florida. We are traveling with 18 people. 4 leaders (shout out to Monica Casey, Andrea Hudson, and Mary Alice Callaway! They are going to do an amazing job with our young people next week!) and 14 kids. 5 Middle School guys and 9 Middle School girls. I would like to ask for your prayers for not only our bonding together and with Christ @ camp, but also for safety as we drive 600 miles each way between Tennessee and FLorida. It has been a full summer of youth fellowships, Sunday School time in the Word, and integration into staff life with my incredible team here. We have found some rhythm now and are excited to spring board from Great Escape into the newness of the fall. A MAJOR RENOVATION of the upstairs youth room will begin in the next couple of weeks and we will kick off a new chapter in the life of the 2nd Pres student ministry on Wednesday night September 7th @ 6:30pm. God is up to something…can’t wait to see how He will continue to move as we are faithful to Him and our young people here. 2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “Anyone who is in Christ is a new creation. The old has gone and the new has come!” From my new office and the renovation it has seen to the new friendships and new chapter of ministry…everything here has a new and clean feel. The new has come. God is here. Amen.
