Leadership Training Event (LTE) was a huge success this past Monday evening, Sept. 15! The numbers of those attending have continued to grow, and the excitement of the learning and passion of serving Christ was once again apparent this year! It is our prayer that those who attended picked up a nugget or two of how to better serve in their church.

Brookside CRC hosted a SERVE week the week of July 21, and went out and made a difference in their community! Pictured at the left is a group who worked at Camelot Woods in Grand Rapids. It was exciting for VIS to be a part of placing the SERVE participants throughout the week, and we thank God for the willingness of the young people to want to give up a week of summer vacation to learn more about how to serve through our examples.
Friendship CRC is hosting their 8th annual SERVE Week this week with 80 middle school age young people from around Michigan and Canada. VIS has arranged placements for them to provide community service at 24 different sites around the Grand Rapids area. They are an amazing group of young people who are learning the connection of being Christ in the world around them and letting their "lights" shine for Him. We thank them and their leaders for being such a positive influence in our world! To see more pictures of them "in action," go to Photos & Videos, above, and click on Friendship CRC SERVE, or click Here.
