"Kyle at Camp" pictures just arrived


Here's Kyle, John and Justin at Twin Lakes. I am just getting this picture. The crazy man in front was their counselor Matt. Didn't see you at the pool Kyle. We missed you and several Level Heads who didn't make it.

Prayer Request!

Hey Level Heads!
Amy Wu's brother (I think his name was James) died yesterday. Please pray for her and her family. And I think that if members of Next Level sent her an encouraging email or called her, it would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Level Heads at the Pool

Many Level-Heads took advantage to a private pool night at Bryan Park. The guys (and Andrea) were trying out the diving boards, while some raced down the water slides. View a video or two and look for more pictures after I get parental okays. Enjoy!

Level Heads on the Road for Ministry


Camp Good News, Mexico, Twin Lakes, you name it. Level-Heads managed to get right down to business in missions and ministry this summer. Locally, Camp Good News hosted four Level-Heads in week one. While Emily and Rachael were campers, Olivia and Audrey worked in the kitchen serving camp food and encouragement.
South of the border, plans changed at the last minute from a Rosarita destination to Tijuana for Amor Ministries (http://www.amor.org/) building projects. Though the photos haven't come in yet (I hope I remember everyone!) Andrew, Audrey, Courtney, Coop, Katie, Caleb, Andrea, Michaela, Hannah, Austin (I hope I didn't forget anyome).
Kyle told me today he was at Twin Lakes and had a blast. Who else went? Comment in.

Camp Good News Letters

Hey Gang. Here's the address to send letters to the kids who don't get mail.

Camp Olivet
Route 1 Box 1776
Springville, IN 47462

Turns out Matt C. was right! I must have had the box number mixed up with the zip. Thanks Matt!

Please hand-write your notes, be encouraging and make sure you identify yourself as a member of Next Level Ministries, Emmanuel Baptist Church in Bloomington. Address the note to Camp Good News Camper. A sample might look like this...

Dear Camp Good News Camper:

I hope you're having a great time at camp this week learning God's word and making friends with other campers! I am a member of "The Next Level" a teen ministry group at Emmanuel Baptist Church in Bloomington. We have been praying for you and we just know you're going to come home ready to serve God and learn from His word. Go easy on that camp food and don't spend all your snack money in one day! Oh yeah, and don't forget your mosquito repellent! Maybe you can send me a note back sometime. Until then, I know God will bless you whenever you desire to learn about Him and serve Him.

God bless you!

Greg


Wait until Friday to mail your message so that it will arrive next week early. God will bless this loving outreach. Write two or three if you have time. My Mom always included a stick of gum! It sounds silly, but out of the blue it's a real treat.

Later!

Twitter


Why don't we set up a twitter for all of us to follow?

Many of us check our facebooks often so we could all use the twitter/facebook add on.

The e-mail is legit!

I sent out an invitation to write for the blog. THIS IS NOT JUNK MAIL! If you want to be permitted to add your input to the blog, you need to follow the directions for setting up a gmail account (free). Big thanks to Andrea B. for doing the legwork!

Also, I need to know if anyone's parents have an objection to your images appearing on the internet on our web page.


Thanks!

No one is posting!

If you want to post comment on this website you need a gmail address or a google account (as far as I can figure. I need someone to post comment on here so I can see if it's working. SO! Please go to the website www.nextlevel.emmanuelbaptistchurch.us and tell me how you think it's going so far. Also, I want to replace that photo with our kids instead of free stock photography. Thanks!

Next Level is on for 6/3 but I won't be there!

We will be having Next Level this Wednesday, but I won't be there because I have a chance to see my dad before Chere goes back to work. Pete has graciously agreed to take over single handed. What a guy!
