GRIT 08: June 29th-July 3rd

Hola...GRIT is Here and God has been good to us this year...We are getting out of the 'Couve to celebrate who God is and what he has done in our midst this past year...the Overnighter Christmas Party (135 students), the level of leaders we have on board, our parent support, the 7 students getting saved at Snow What? (winter camp), the baptism at GRIT 07, the maturity of our 6th grade group, the development of the 4:12 Crew (student ministry team), and on and on and on... God has been faithful and graciously blessing us along the way. As we celebrate the year, at GRIT 08, we are going to study who God is.
GRIT is our attempt to honor The Feast of Booths (Leviticus 23:33-36)...and yes Leviticus is a book in the should read's fascinatingly bloody. Anyways...our goal for GRIT is to get away from the norm' and just celebrate God! Almost everything we do ends in application...not this! We just want to focus on God and his him, and worship him. that's it...No application, just Jesus.
Ironically I'm about to direct us in application: I think we can all learn from Leviticus 23:33-36. How much of our life are we attempting to get stuff grow personally or spiritually, or study the bible for this reason or that purpose. these things aren't bad...but if we don't slow down and focus on Jesus, just for Jesus...he will slow us down. 
So, that's what our graduating 5th-8th graders are doing...and hopefully they fall in love with Jesus, and it becomes a healthy habit in their focus on Jesus just for Jesus.
