CBSM students, parents, and leaders:
A LOT has happened since our last email last week. First, me and some students have been praying recently to see God saved more lives, and since then we’ve seen 6 or more! Second, Phillip McBryde (CBSM and BJHS senior) preached a super epic sermon last Wednesday called “When God Laid the Smack Down.” You gotta get to the blog (http://www.storylineframework.com <http://www.storylineframework.com/> ) and listen to it if you missed it! Third, we had a HUGE All-Nighter with about 127 teens including about 64 visitors which means we had more visitors than CBSMers for the first time ever. Shout-out to our teens who are reaching their friends! Last, a few of us got to hear Blake’s (CBSM and BJHS junior) practice sermon this past Sunday. He’ll BRING IT this Wednesday night…and its all on “Total Restoration.” You won’t want to miss it…along with our crazy games, awesome worship, and super fun. It’s so good to be a CBSMite!
NETMA is attached for your viewing pleasure. Be sure to check out the Reading Plan for this week.
