It has been an eventful year and a busy year as staff and volunteers with Cru Omaha! So much so, that we have not even been able to take the time to post very often here! We'll share a few photos here to capture some of what has been happening this year, along with a collection of quotes from students during this past school year.
(The quotes shared will be a random selection from students at our various campuses, not necessarily related to the specific photos themselves.)
"Cru has helped me strengthen my relationship with God. Before I joined Cru, I was sad, lost, and lonely. But now I have found love in God and in a family with the Cru members."
"Listening to Ron (Cru volunteer) makes me feel like there's hope ... helps me understand life."
"Cru helps me get involved with other students and come closer to God in a place where He is not always welcome."
"I am taking my first steps into Christianity, and being a part of Cru has unlocked realizations I do not think I will find elsewhere."
"I like Cru because it's an opportunity to be a light to my peers, and it reminds me how great God is."
"Cru has been an amazing opportunity to access the gospel on my high school campus. It allows students to grow through deeper connections with believers and nonbelievers and start gospel centered conversations at our school."
"I learn about God at Cru and I can talk to people here."
"School doesn't teach about Christ. Cru let's you talk about Christ with your peers on campus."
"Cru helps me to come near to the Lord and to trust that He's always there for me."
"I like Cru because it gives the youth a chance to learn about God and the Bible."
"Cru has helped me understand and apply the Bible to my life."
"When I first started coming to Cru I didn't have much of an understanding of what Christianity was and
"Cru has been huge in developing me as a leader and in my faith."
"Cru has helped me by teaching me about God. Thank you."
"Coming to Cru enriches my knowledge and understanding of God's Word. I'm glad to have Christian friends who have the same passion for Jesus as I do who are my age."
"Cru has shown me what my place is in God."
Please pray for the students in these photos, and those represented by the quotes that we have collected from this past school year. We are so grateful for all that God has done in students' lives!
