Life Beyond LOG – Andrew


At the Seniors On A Rise event last weekend, our seniors spent some vertical time thinking about who they wanted to be as they move beyond LOG and into the rest of their life.  Andrew Rakowski (LOG #76) wrote the following:

As I transition from high school to college and beyond, I ask God to walk with me, watch over me, and keep me on his path. I will actively apply the teachings of my parents and God in order to live a life that is pleasing to them both. I will hold my friendships close and keep them strong and well nourished, as my friends are people that I value greatly in my life. God calls me to be kind and loving to everyone I come in contact with, as  it is my duty as a Christian to show God’s love even in my darkest hour. The pathway to becoming a nurse will allow me to impact not only the patients I will treat but also my fellow nurses and colleagues. I hope to provide meaningful and life changing care to every patient that I treat and remain humble, empathetic, and professional at all times. When I depart from this Earth, I want people to remember me as someone who was rarely upset and could make even the saddest person happy. I want people to look back on their time spent with me and react the same way I lived my life, by smiling wholeheartedly and unapologetically.

June 4 is Pentecost Sunday, the day when Christians remember and celebrate God’s gift of the Holy Spirit and the “birthday” of the church.

On Pentecost Sunday, June 4, we will have the opportunity to lead the folks of Memorial Presbyterian Church in worship and song.

This church has been so very generous and supportive of us – please come help us share the love of God with them!

The Next Step: L•4•G #20

July 28-30, 2017
(note change of date)

L•4•G is the next step beyond a LOG weekend.

Saturday’s focus is on growing in your Love•4•God.  We experience God’s love for us in our LOG weekends.  L•4•G is when we try to learn how to love God back – through prayer, quiet times, Bible study etc.  This year, our leaders will be our very own McKevor (McKenna & Trevor Killion).

Sunday’s focus is on putting our love into action as we learn to Lead•4•God in our homes, schools, clubs, churches and friend groups.  This year’s leader will be Katie Mulligan who attended LOG #1 in California and until just recently led LOG in New Jersey.

PS from Terry – if you are currently a high school junior, take this piece of advice.  The things we learn and experience during L•4•G are not just important life lessons.  These are good tools for anyone who has hopes of serving as a CoLeader during their senior year.  Just saying …

Important dates – mark your calendars:
– June 2 – – LOG #92 Overnight
– June 3  – – Sneak Peek at Bashor
– June 17 – – Nelson’s Chicken Fundraiser
– June 23-25  – – LOG #92 at Bashor Home
