Yes!   I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited to get this summer started.  It is time to Banzai!!!! That’s right…shout it with me…BANZAI!!!! June 22 - 24, we are headed to Beach Banzai at San Onofre State Beach for three days and two nights in the sun, sand and surf.  This is our third annual trip and as you know this will be some of the best days of your summer.  Invite your friends.   We are limited to 50 spots but let’s fill it up!  The cost is only $85.  Sign-up on our new youth group webpage at encounteryouth.group.   

Have you ever said to yourself, “Who Am I!?! Why do I exist!?!” Have you ever said, “I just wish people knew the real me?”  Many of us have been asking these questions for a very long time.  In fact, many of the adults I talk to are still asking these questions.  But God has already given us the answers to these questions and more.   That’s why this summer we are going to launch a new series on Monday nights called #TheRealMe.   When you know who you are in Christ and who you were created to be, you can walk out your identity and destiny in life.    So join us this summer as we allow the Holy Spirit to speak to you about the truth of your life. You are unique and God gifted.  You are sons and daughters of the King!  That is #TheRealMe.   

Sundays we are continuing in God’s word as we press into the Bible Project in the books of Job, Psalms and Proverbs. What is your favorite Psalm? Mine is Psalm 139…check it out!    Monday nights along with our new series #TheRealMe, we will have epic times of core groups, worship and special pool parties called Deeper.   You won’t want to miss it.  Mark your calendars with all these dates right now!
