First Accelere Student Meeting
A very exciting event - our first student meeting with our brand new campus, Cru Accelere in North Omaha! We have been praying and planning for months, and following God's leading to open up this new campus to Cru (formerly Student Venture). Last spring we were contacted by some staff at Accelere, and were invited to open up this campus for Cru. An amazing opportunity to impact students with the truth of God's love and forgiveness.
This unique alternative school is for 17-21 year-olds, who have made the decision to try to finish up their high school classes which were interrupted for a variety of reasons. God has led us to some great volunteers who we will be working with, and these volunteers met with us and twelve students last week for our first student meeting! They met next door to Accelere during the lunch hour, and had a great time of connecting and sharing over the pizza lunch that we brought in.
Praise God for His amazing leading to this point. And please pray for our volunteers, and our team as we continue to follow God's direction in reaching out to the students at Accelere. This is a needy mission field, and we depend totally on God. Please pray for many Accelere students to become totally committed to Christ and His plan for their lives.
