SUMMER NEWSLETTER Summer Student Outreach
We’re excited about some Local SW Portland outreach events we’re calling “The Net” (taken from Jesus’ parable about the kingdom of heaven being like a net in Matthew 13:47-52). These events will be a time with pre-event prayer, pool time fun, and relationship building with other students at local SW Portland pools. The big idea is that we will enjoy some time at a local pool connecting with other students from the area by playing water basketball (or other), then inviting them to our next gathering/ event.
