Bridging the Gaps
MCALLEN, TEX. – Following the discussion about the importance of churches supporting Adventist education at the Texas Conference Quadrennial Constituency Session this past May, South Texas Christian Academy (STCA) staff in McAllen, Tex., met with local area pastors to pray and fellowship.
We’re thankful to STCA for hosting this important endeavor and for preparing a delicious meal for all of us to enjoy.
The purpose of the meeting was to raise awareness that we need to start working together, as a team, to solidify God’s kingdom in the Rio Grande Valley area, particularly when it comes to our children. We are striving to create a united front, bridging the gaps between church, home and school to pave the way for eternity!
Another way we are doing that is by helping the community. On Sabbath, Aug. 3, 2019, Infinite Life Seventh-day Adventist Church in Edinburg, Tex., was privileged to participate in one of our annual outreach community projects called “Back to School.” This year, we were able to serve more than 250 people from our community with 100 backpacks filled with school supplies. Some of these families waited three hours prior to our event because they wanted to make sure their children received the much-needed school supplies.
In 3 John 4 it says, "I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.” We are taking that verse to heart as we work to share the love of Jesus in our community.
