CTF is off to a great start this year!
I’m so excited about where our students are and where they are headed. I’ve seen so much growth in them and really see them taking on God’s plan for their life and making steps towards being more like Jesus to their school and peers.
Our theme for the semester has been “Taste and See” from Psalm 34 where David says “Taste and see that the Lord is good.” We’ve been singing the Psalm 34 Shane and Shane song to keep that fresh on our minds. Our goal in this theme has been to encourage each student to reach out and experience God on their own. We want our students to really know God, not just do Christian activities. Our goal has been to push them to seek God not only at CTF on Wednesdays but on their own in their everyday life; to taste of God, and to see how good God really is.
Wednesday nights this year have been our largest meetings we’ve ever had! We continue to see new students every week, and new students are choosing to come back. We have also become much more diverse as a ministry, really in every way: in regards to race, interests, style, age, etc. This has been a big prayer for our ministry because we don’t want to be only one type of student. The Kingdom of God is diverse and all people are represented there and unified together under Christ. We want to reflect that as one of his communities in Wylie and are so glad he is answering our prayer!
