Mission Minded? Check it out!

Summer 2017 brings us to a NEW adventure for Ignition Mission!

At Seneca Creek Community Church, we have defined our vision in the following way: To ignite a movement of the gospel that will transform our world with the H.O.P.E. of Christ! The gospel is the HOPE of the world and we, the Church, have been entrusted with that hope.

In ignition, we believe that students are in a unique position to live out this calling.

We are looking forward to an amazing summer Ignition Mission trip and we can’t wait to share the details with you!!

Mark your calendars and RSVP here for one of these two informational meeting dates:

  • Sunday, January 29th at 9:00am
  • Wednesday, February 8th at 6:00pm

This meeting will cover all of your questions about timing, location, student eligibility, etc. so if you are even remotely interested, please plan to be there. SPACES are EXTREMELY limited and unlike last year, it is unlikely I can add spaces beyond our current reservation.

Our trip dates are July 23-29, 2017 and, yes – I know it seems like the summer is forever away, but we are working with early deadlines and planning. Believe me, summer will be here before we know it!

Parents – if your student is interested, you really need to be at this meeting. And, if you are interested in coming on this trip as well, we will definitely be going over very important details about that as well.

You can keep up with information as it becomes available on our MISSION TEAM WEBSITE.

We can’t wait to see God build this team and change our hearts!

Ignition Mission: What’s the big deal?

Reality check: July is just around the corner.

It’s tempting to think of the upcoming trip to Cincinnati as just another summer programming “thing” from the church. It will fill a space on my calendar. It gets my kid(s) out of the house. It will show my kids how much they have and maybe they’ll appreciate it more. It’s one less thing I have to plan.

The truth is, mission trips are far more revolutionary than a van ride to sweat in the sun for a few days.

Long before even our first meeting as a team, the Holy Spirit is at work building that revolution. Each team is build from the heart up, starting with the initial prompts from God to step outside of where we are most comfortable. In so many ways, the mission team becomes a microcosm of what it means to live in Christian community, guided by the hand of God in very real ways.

And it doesn’t stop there.

One of the primary reasons we go on these trips is to train and equip our students (and our leaders and parents) in kingdom work that can, and needs to be, done right here in our own backyards. Our neighbors need us in ways we can rarely see without looking through the lens of bringing heaven to earth, or building God’s kingdom right here. This trip provides exactly the right set of “prescription” lenses.

And I’m not the only one who believes this. Take a moment to check out THIS VIDEO of what other student leaders are saying about the experience of partnering with Engage:Service.

So, as we approach the critical “drop dead” date to get on the team, I ask that you prayerfully consider sending your student and maybe even joining us on this incredible journey. All the details can be found in our Ignition Mission 2015 Packet and you can also download an official Ignition Mission 2015 Application.

The absolute final date to bring in your application and deposit is March 29th.

I look forward to having your student(s) and you on this year’s team!

Important Opportunity! Don’t miss this!

At Seneca Creek Community Church, we have defined our vision in the following way: To ignite a movement of the gospel that will transform our world with the H.O.P.E. of Christ! The gospel is the HOPE of the world and we, the Church, have been entrusted with that hope.

In ignition, we believe that students are in a unique position to live out this calling.

And, to that end, from July 13-18, our very own ignition students will embark on amazing summer missions trip!

Join me Sunday, February 8 at 12:30pm for a brief information meeting where all the details will be available. This meeting will cover all of your questions about timing, location, student eligibility, etc. If you are even remotely interested, please plan to be there with or without your student. Several veterans of the trip will be there as well so come with plenty of questions! This is also an excellent opportunity to serve together as a family!

If you are interested, please RSVP to heather@senecacreek.org so I can plan appropriately!
