Just So You Will Know: Keeping Up with GABC

February 17, 2019

AS YOU MAY RECALL, when I shared with you a couple of weeks ago, I presented a quick review and general explanation of the multitude of opportunities that are happening during Spring Break here at GABC. And, I explained that, as premature as it may have seemed at the time, Spring Break was actually not that far off.

WELL, A COUPLE OF WEEKS have now passed and, as time seems to inevitably fly by, we are now just a little over two weeks (18 days to be exact) away from the start of our Spring Break itinerary. I thought it may be wise to do another quick review. This time, however, I’m not going to go into a lot of detail about what is going to happen; I am simply going to list all of the activities and schedule changes during the week of Spring Break for the benefit of those of you who prefer bullet points to explanations.

HERE IS WHAT we are anticipating the week of Spring Break (actually more than a week, because our activities start before Spring Break officially begins) is going to look like around Green Acres.

And so, another Spring Break moves toward the starting gate, as hundreds of GABC members prepare to scatter all over the world. The fact that you may not be going on one of these adventures, however, does not mean that you cannot play a part. I suggest putting this list on your refrigerator, in your Bible or anywhere else it might catch your eye, and make Spring Break at GABC the focus of your prayers. The fact is, by doing that, the part you play may be the most important part of all.
