This year, Crossway Student Ministries will focus on building biblical relationships as we grow closer to the Lord. In order to achieve this goal we plan to have an emphasis called, Year of the RHINO. Why RHINOS you might ask. Well consider the following:
"...But my favorite of all is a group of RHINOS. You see, RHINOS can run at thirty miles an hour, which is pretty fast when you consider how much weight they're pulling. They're actually faster than squirrels, which can run at up to twenty-six miles an hour. And even then, who's going to live in dread of a charging squirrel? (Sorry-that was a bit off point.) Running at thirty miles an hour is faster than a used Pinto will go. Just one problem with this phenomenon. RHINOS can only see thirty feet in front of them. Can you imagine something that large moving in concert as a group, plowing ahead at thirty miles an hour with no idea what's at thirty-one feet? You would think that they would be far too timid to pick up full steam, that their inability to see far enough ahead would paralyze them to immobility. But with that horn pointing the way, RHINOS run forward full steam ahead without apprehension, which leads us to their name.
RHINOS moving together at full speed are known as a CRASH. Even when they're just hanging around enjoying the watershed, they're called a CRASH because of their potential. You've got to love that. I think that's what we are supposed to be. That's what happens when we become barbarians and shake free of domestication and civility. The church becomes a crash. We become an unstoppable force."
Our Student Ministry can make a difference in our culture. As our students grow closer together and learn what it means to be part of a larger group, they can make an impact on the world around them. As we run together, without apprehension, we will plow through the troubles of this current world; We will change and shape our world, our world will no longer change and shape us! We will change and influence the culture, the culture will no longer change and influence us. As we grow closer together in God we will become an unstoppable force.
Do you long for deeper relationships with your brothers and sisters in Christ? Are you looking for a place to plug in to learn more about God and His plan for your life?
Join us at CSM and learn what it means to be a believer. Come grow closer to other Christians as we worship the Lord.
