The Invitation

IT’S SUMMER! We bask in this wonderful time for family, friends, relaxing, and fun. It's a time for vacations from work and school. But there is one vacation we shouldn’t consider this summer—and that is from Church. Church should be the center of our lives throughout the year, and summer is no exception. Join us this summer as we #soakuptheSON.

What is #soakuptheSON?

#soakuptheSON is a summer program for individuals, couples, and families to assist them in deepening their relationship with Christ and His Church. The weekly content is offered as a reminder "to commit ourselves and one another and our whole lives to Christ our God." To participate, check out our website and Facebook page each week for a new theme. From there, you can modify the program to your liking.

The most important part of #soakuptheSON is to share it—with your family at home, your family at church, and your family of friends. Share it with us, your family at the Center for Family Care, by using the hashtag #soakuptheSON. We look forward to connecting with you!

Don’t miss out! This summer relax, have fun, and use lots of sunscreen—but most importantly #soakupthe SON!

Soak Up the Son: Week 8

Over the centuries, much has been said and written about the Jesus Prayer. And with good reason! In a concise manner, praying “Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner” (or one of its variations) helps us to follow the Apostle Paul’s exhortation to “pray without ceasing” (Thessalonians 5:17). The greatest commandment—that we love God with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength—requires from us a steadfast effort to keep Him in the forefront of our conscience—and this is through the work of continual prayer. The more we pray, the more we are mindful to live according to God’s will.
