A note from Pastor Andy Summer Boot Camp With Jesus

When it comes to physical fitness there literally are hundreds of approaches and techniques available to those who care. Some of the newest trends in physical fitness include programs such as Zumba, Circuit Training, Spin Classes, SHAPE, and Cross-fit. One of my favorite approaches to fitness found all over Lubbock is called Boot Camp. Boot Camps vary from place to place but they have several things in common:

1. BC’s are all about getting you stronger and healthier. 2. BC’s take place not in isolation but in a group context. 3. BC’s involve pushing and encouraging maximum performance. 4. BC’s involve using different tools and methodologies (stretching, running, weights, interval training, and nutritional coaching) to make sure your fitness growth is occurring. 5. BC’s require setting aside specific time every day to pursue your physical health. If someone is going to Military Boot Camp, they have to leave their home, their family, their former life, so that he or she can be trained and prepared to be an effective soldier in our armed forces. This summer at St. Luke’s we are going to be having a Boot Camp with Jesus. The goal of this camp is to build you up and make you stronger and healthier in your relationship with God and in your relationships with each other.

perish. Satan tries to convince us over and over that our lives can’t be better, that all we can do is merely exist and survive. John 10:10 says, however, that He came that we might have life and life abundantly. To experience His abundant life, you have to want it! This summer, get off your spiritual couch and get engaged in growing in Christ.

2. You will stop trying to do Christianity on your own or in your own strength. We are the Body of Christ, and we are made strong when we are made strong together. Researchers find significant improvement in commitment to and effectiveness of physical training when persons are involved in some kind of an exercise group. This is especially true for us who are seeking to be built up as a disciple of Jesus. We need each other! Every Christian needs a Christ-centered family of grace so that they have a place to belong and a place to grow. Iron sharpens iron, and God has called us to sharpen each other in Christ. 3. You will get serious about growing this summer and to stop settling for lukewarm mediocrity. Matt and I will be preaching sermons that both challenge you and also encourage you to put tools in place so that you improve your prayer life, deepen your witness for Christ, expand your life of forgiveness, and further your transformation into the very image of Christ.

4. You will take advantage of all kinds of spiritual exercises that will be made For this Boot Camp to be effective for your available to you through our Summer spiritual fitness you need to make a decision Boot Camp. Grab hold of the sermons now that: that are being offered, get involved in 1. You desire to be stronger and healthier in Boot Camp Grace Groups, choose to get your relationship with God. Proverbs 29:18 connected to online growth resources, says that without a vision the people will take a risk to serve in one of our many Summer 2016 Visionary St. Luke’s Lubbock 2


outreaches this summer, join one of our grace prayer groups. Tools left on a shelf never make any difference, but tools engaged with intentionality will accomplish their purpose. 5. You will set aside time to grow this summer. Make a commitment to be at worship every single Sunday you are in town. Make time to pray, to be in Christcentered community, to serve, to study. If you don’t make room for growth in your life, growth will never happen.

“I am not afraid that the people called Methodists should ever cease to exist either in Europe or America. But I am afraid, lest they should only exist as a dead sect, having the form of religion without the power. And this undoubtedly will be the case, unless they hold fast both the doctrine, spirit, and discipline with which they first set out.” Sounds like he would have made a great Drill Sergeant for this summer’s Boot Camp!

As we get ready for our Summer Boot Camp with Jesus, I am reminded about what John Wesley said over 200 years ago:

A note from Pastor Matt Boot Camp

The United States Marine Corps has a motto, “Semper Fidelis,” or “Semper Fi.” It means ‘always faithful’ or ‘always loyal.’ This Latin term conveys the importance of faithfulness. One of the central themes found in the Bible is that of faithfulness. This motto applies more to Christians than to any other group in the world. Christians are under assault from enemies inside and outside the church. God needs women and men who will stand for His truth. Are you willing to take a stand? Do you know how to talk about the truth you stand for? This summer, St. Luke’s is going to boot camp: “Boot Camp with Jesus.” We will learn some of the basics of spiritual living and of the foundations of our life in Christ. In the Bible, one of the fundamental traits that sets the heroes of faith apart from the villains is the ability to rely on God. In contrast, those whom the Bible condemns looked only to their own strength. Such people ended up lost and as warnings to future generations. Let us not forget in our competence that the race is not always to the quick, nor the battle to the strong, but rather the power and truth of Jesus Christ will be victorious. Reliance on the ability of Christ, who is always faithful to us, is one of the hallmarks of the influence of the Holy Spirit, and of the knowledge of the love of God. Our Boot Camp will have four components that address our physical health, our mental health, our social health, and our spiritual health. No Marine is ever victorious by accident, but rather by purposeful training and intention. Until we rain the same way, purposefully and intentionally as Christians, we will never be fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. So, get out your Bibles, put on your exercise shoes, find your reading glasses, and get ready to hear biblical preaching as we go to Boot Camp with Jesus!

Vida Abundante

The Customs of the Peoples are Vanity

We will never stop learning! This very common statement from my grandmother is always right, even when it comes to planting churches! This is, on both sides, about how God wants to do something and how the people will understand what we are doing. Now, after I planted 12 new churches as a local pastor and started 32 others as a superintendent in Cuba, I supposed I knew enough about it. Then I started the current new church here in Lubbock and I have been remembering my Grandma´s statement again.

In the last few months, we have been working hard to recover from some internal conflicts among our diverse and multicultural Hispanic congregation and our different ways to respond to them. Those situations were new for me in many ways, especially because some people prefer to take a unilateral decision before talking about it and find a solution. This provoked five families to leave our church. There was not anything wrong with the church or our leadership, but between several attendees. Now, we are involved in connecting with new families and continuing to bring pastoral care to those who are not part of our services anymore. After that, God has continued helping us to find two new families who are in need of pastoral and spiritual support, so we are now focused on working with them. On the other hand, God used this situation to encourage others members into a deeper commitment with our church. Of course, we have to face the unstable economic situation of several attendees. They are frequently changing their jobs or schedules and it makes hard to have all of them in our services. It is being a supernatural experience that challenges and enforces our calling in a middle of new ways! Now, as well as I doubt there is another way in which life and ministry could be so exciting and improved, at the same time we are calling to stay faithful remembering this: “not learning the way of the nations, nor be dismayed at the signs of the heavens because the nations are dismayed at them, for the customs of the peoples are vanity” Jer 10:2,3

-Jorge

Finish The Race THE RACE HAS BEGUN! Congratulations and THANK YOU for making the kickoff of our “Finish The Race” campaign a huge success. As of May 15, our church family had turned in estimate of giving cards in the amount of $253,000 to be given over the next 18 months. Lord willing, these gifts will let us be completely out of debt by the end of 2017. Praise God!!! Also noteworthy, God’s people at St. Luke’s gave $46,451 to “Finish The Race” in the month of April. $6,000 of this total came from our wonderful church wide dinner and silent auction. Thanks to all of you who helped, gave and will be giving in the days ahead!

Children’s Ministry KidCheck Check-in System

We will begin using our KidCheck check-in systems for Sunday School and Children’s Worship beginning Sunday, June 5th. We are putting the KidCheck system in place in order to ensure the safety of all of the kids in our ministry. Each child will have a special profile that includes important information such as contact information, allergies and special instructions. When you check your child in for a ministry area (Nursery, Sunday School, Worship, etc…) 2 name badges will be printed. One badge will be placed on your child and the other will be kept by you to be used when you pick your child up. In order to ease the transition, please create an account at www.kidcheck.com prior to arrival on June 5th. When creating an account, one parent will have the “primary” account and will enter all of the info for their family, including children. The other parent will be registered as a “guardian” so the child information isn’t entered twice. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Tessa or D’Lea.

Kids LIVE Scavenger Hunt Our end of year Kids Live Scavenger Hunt at the Mall was a blast! We had 15 families in attendance and enjoyed locating items and blessing others through many service projects. Thanks to everyone who helped make this event possible! St. Luke’s Lubbock

Ragamuffin Students Mark this day in your calendars…the day Kurtis kept his article brief! Summer is here and I find myself telling this story over and over again. When I was in Middle and High School, every summer brought forth a stern conversation between me, my parents, and my football & baseball coaches. Their argument always sounded like this: “Don’t you think you’re getting a little too old for camp? I think it’s time you spent your summer working, working out, and getting ahead for the fall.” On top of this, as a Junior and Senior my coaches would slip in the remark, “You want to start this year don’t you?” “You want to help us win State, don’t you?” I did want to start. I did want to win state. I did want extra spending money that work would give me, and the body working out would give me. But I wanted something else much, much more. Summer was a time for camp, community, and growing with the Holy Spirit in new and exciting ways; and every year was better than the previous. That was something I would not allow to be taken from me, no matter what demanded my attention, so every year camp and youth came first. To this day you can ask my dad, my mom, my brothers, or even some of my coaches, and all of them would now tell you I made the right choice. Sports are temporary (even when you’re really, REALLY good). Money is ALWAYS fleeting and God provides. Every other siren song calling us away from what God has for us into the Neverland of busyness will undoubtedly leave us emptier than we were before. This summer, how are you and your family choosing what will never fade? How are you investing in that which grows exponentially and cannot be taken from you? This summer God is knocking on your heart asking you one question, “Will you open the door and let me in?” “He is NO FOOL who trades what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.” -Jim Elliot “What good is it to gain the whole world, yet lose your soul?” – Jesus the Christ
