Summer Conference

Summer Conference in the Rockies of Colorado is always a highlight for the students who go! In mid-June, Jake (staff member) took a group of students from our area to attend this Cru Summer Conference for high school students. Our students represented two area campuses ... Cru Fort Calhoun, and Cru North.

The students came back very excited from all that they had learned, as well as from all the fun that they had. One of these students shared his thoughts  ...

"This conference has opened my mind and my heart
far more than I ever could have imagined.
My faith has been dramatically revitalized and transformed.
I have a peace and a calling that I have never experienced before
and I don't think it's going away anytime soon!"

Please pray for these students as they continue to grow in their faith, and as they make an impact for Jesus on the lives of their peers.

Cru Summer Kickoff

Schools are out, and summer is here! 
And ... Cru Summer is here!

A change of pace from the weekly student meetings on each campus during the school year ... but a continued gathering of students!

In our Cru Omaha area students are gathering in two locations throughout the summer: in a Scooter's coffee shop meeting room in Omaha, and in a student's home in Washington County. 

Cru Summer Kickoff on Friday evening, May 25th
Held on an acreage between Omaha and Washington County!

The evening was a combination of outdoor activities and games, hot dogs and s'mores over the fire, and a challenge from God's Word for the students to take as they enter into their summer routines.

We are excited for what God will do in the lives of students over the summer months! The students are going through a nationwide discipleship training called "Summer Connect". 

We're thankful for our volunteers, and also our student leaders as they are taking leadership in this summer program. 

Please pray for each student who will be impacted to follow Jesus more closely, and who will be developing a heart for serving others ... all within an atmosphere of fun and connection with each other throughout the summer months. The summer months can be a powerful time of training and gearing up for a very fruitful new school year in the fall.
