9th August

The students of the UPCI are ready to change the world! Well over 500 students and chaperones signed up to be a part of Project 22:39. Through giving and going in the downtown area and metro parks, they showed the spirit of Matthew 22:39 which challenges each of us to love our neighbor as ourself. Several community service projects were carried out and an instant impact was made in the city of Louisville, Kentucky.

Many students at NAYC were also showing love by donating to a canned food drive called ‘FEED the HUNGRY’ all throughout the week. This food drive will go to help Dare to Care Food Bank in Louisville feed the hungry in the metro area. Last year Dare to Care helped over 192,000 different families in the Louisville community, and we are proud to partner with them to … Read More »

The District of Hawaii is in a season of revival! The most joyful are those who have chosen to be a part of the reaping. Recently Pastor McGriffin said, “Everyone ought to know Jesus!” I cheered along with the congregation, but I remember a time when I did not always think that way.

A teacher once called me a punk in high school. I embraced it and it became me. To my dad, it seemed I could never be good enough, and I embraced that I was not good enough. Growing up, I never really had any true friends, so I felt like I deserved that. … Read More »

“For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward” (Mark 9:41).

On February 29, a devastating tornado ripped through a small southern Illinois town about thirty miles away from our town. We felt the high winds and rain from the storm, but we did not experience the devastation the storm brought to Harrisburg, Illinois. Many homes and businesses were destroyed, and several lives were lost. Hundreds of people suffered injury and were without food, shelter, and basic necessities.

Our youth group is called “3116.” The 3,116th word in the Bible is “servants.” One of the principles we are trying to teach our kids is service. Jesus reached out to people and took care of their needs. He showed us we … Read More »
