It's the 4th week of Summer Jam 2011 here at Fortress and everyone is back from a well deserved break. Well, everyone except for Dani, one of our summer directors who left Fort Worth to spend the rest of her summer at Camp of the Hills. She will be missed! After taking a whole week off last week for the July 4th holiday, the Fortress staff and interns are ready to get back into the swing of things.
This week's theme is "set an example in purity." Read the story of David and Bathsheba (2 Samuel 11) to understand the lesson God wants us to take from David giving into the temptation of lust. Our memory verse for this week is "flee the evil desires of youth, and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart" (2 Timothy 2:22). How can we show and teach the Fortress kids to flee the evil desires of youth?
We'd also like to welcome Round Rock Church of Christ as our youth group volunteers this week!
In baby news, Taylor and Daniel are happy to say that Elliott is doing well and just has a case of the hiccups here and then :)
