The Roots have Spread...

This summer sure has been filled with lots of transitions, students and staff alike!

It has been and continues to be a time for the roots to run deep and strengthen. Growth is evident and we're excited for the fruit this year will produce.

As we welcome new families to the seminary, we all are looking forward to the start of a new season together. We can't wait to share stories with you all!!

Many of you already know that we are celebrating with Erin Crisp who has accepted a teaching position in Fayette County this coming year. She served as a phenomenal leader for the Spouse & Family Team this past year and we are not-so-secretly jealous of the eighth grade students who will now be the recipients of her gifts. She'll always be part of the SFM family, now getting to be a full fledged participant! And Erin, we'll save a seat for you at anything you want to volunteer at... :)

Stepping up into the position of Spouse & Family Director is our own Sarah Jackson. She has served the last 3 years as the Student Services Coordinator in Community Life. She and her husband, Jason, have been involved with SFM since beginning their seminary journey. In this transition, the position has become full time (YAY!!) and she'll be keeping regular office hours so stop by and say hello as you pass through the lobby of the Student Center. We're excited to have Sarah "officially" join the team.

With Spouse & Family kick-off events just a couple weeks away, we'll be posting more updates and resources to the blog so you can stay informed. Check your snailmail too for a mailing that includes information on all the programs we'll be offering this fall. But, more than anything, we'd love to talk with you in person and connect too.

You're loved & you're being prayed for.

love * grow * worship
