Chrysalis – July 2014

Jared Chrestman smallThanks to everybody that came out to support the Chrysalis fundraiser at Blue Sky. We don’t have the official numbers in yet but we were told that our turn out was exceptional and we may have set a record. You guys are amazing supporters and this community wouldn’t be possible without all your prayers and interaction.

TheJuly2014 high school flights in July are in full swing and the teams are continuing to prepare for what God will do in the lives of all those young people. Pray for Yvonne and Jason daily as well as the teams and their families and please sign up your high schoolers and spread the word.

We currently have not found a replacement Lay Director for our September Boys Journey the 11-14th. If you have spent some time working Chrysalis events and meet a few requirements you might just be eligible. If the Lord is tugging at your heart strings and you think this might be a position he’s calling you to please contact me and we’ll talk.

Chrysalis – June 2014

Blue Sky logoPraise God for another month come and gone and another month upon us with new opportunity to serve him with all of our heart and soul. Praise him for the rain and the green grass everywhere!

Thursday June 26th we are having a fundraiser for our Chrysalis scholarship fund at both Blue Sky restaurants in Lubbock. All you have to do is show up during regular business hours and tell the cashier your ordering food to support the Chrysalis community and they will donate 20% of the proceeds to our community. It’s very important that you specifically mention Chrysalis though or it will not count. They have two locations you can choose from.

– 3216 4th st (just east of Indiana)
– 4416 98th (intersection at Quaker and 98th)

Please tell your friends and family to help us out that day by participating. Your help is greatly appreciated.

On another note please be in prayer for our high school flights in July. We need mature Christian youth that have yet to experience what an Emmaus weekend is all about. Spread the word and pray for Yvonne Alred and Heath Gary as they prepare to serve as stewards over both walks.

Prayer is the most important part of a spiritually healthy community and I want to encourage each and everyone of you to spend time daily lifting up the needs of our community; praying for the unleashing the power of Holy Spirit upon our members, affiliate churches and pastors, future pilgrims and our city and surrounding towns. Never has there been a greater privilege given to man than the right to stand before God boldly on behalf of the needs of men.


“Praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,” ~ Ephesians 6:18

“Those born of prayer are the saviors of a country, and those saturated with prayer give life and impetus to the Church. Under God, they are the saviors and helpers of both Church and country.” – E.M. Bounds (The Weapon Of Prayer)

Blessings !
