Dear Antioch Family,

Summer is a great opportunity to be refreshed, renewed and to move forward in our personal lives and in the Kingdom of God not only as a family, but also as a church.

Through the years Laura and I have realized that every great family not only has great intentions but takes time to make plans for what matters most. For us, we use a tool called Roles and Goals. We take time personally, and as a family, to evaluate where we are currently and where we feel God wants to take us over the summer in six key areas:

  • Spiritually
  • Mentally
  • Family
  • Financially
  • Relationally
  • Physically

I encourage you and your family to set aside time to fill out your own Roles and Goals sheet for the summer.

The second part of having a great summer is!

During the summer the schedules change, kids are out of school and we go on vacations or travel. What is exciting for us as the Antioch family is that wherever you go you can still do church! You can stream our 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. services at wherever you are and enter into the service with us. So whether you are overseas or having a “staycation” as a family, you can track with our Philippians series all summer long.

Psalm 90:12 “So teach us to number our days, that we may present to You a heart of wisdom.”

Ephesians 5:15-17  “Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil.  So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.”

I also suggest diving into a book this summer. I’m reading through Purpose Driven Life with my boys right now, and I highly recommend it! Some other suggestions are:

Have a great summer, Antioch!

In His strength,
