C. S. Lewis, in his classic, “Mere Christianity,” writes this: Creatures are not born with desires unless satisfaction for those desires exists. A baby feels hunger; well, there is such a thing as food. A duckling wants to swim; well, there is such a thing as water. . . .
If I find in myself a desire that no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world. If none of my earthly pleasures satisfy it, that does not prove that the universe is a fraud. Probably, earthly pleasures were never meant to satisfy it, but only to arouse it, to suggest the real thing.
May the assurance of our salvation and the reality of our relationship with Jesus be that which sets us apart from those whose expectations about life have left them disappointed and bitter. May the smile on your face and mine, despite all of these negative emotions, be a light that shines in the darkness of a fallen world.
And may the promise of a restored world, a new heaven and a new earth, compel us to share the gospel with an urgency we have never felt before. And through it all, may God receive glory, honor and praise from His people who love and trust Him. With Love, Pastor Scott

It's a great time of year!! The kids are going back to school, the leaves are thinking about changing and it's time to begin AWANA! AWANA, a fun, Bible-based program that challenges kids to dig into and memorize God's word,
is just around the corner. We are excited about what this new club year will hold for us and for the children we minister to.
Awana will begin Wednesday, September 8th at 6:05 pm. We look forward to this upcoming club year of learning, growing, and fun. Clubbers crawl under your beds (don’t get stuck, yikes), look in your closets, gather up your Awana gear, bring some new friends, and let’s get ready to rock this new club year!
Registration is required for all clubbers and leaders, it’s simple, log on to www.spinningroadbaptist.org, and register as soon as possible. Please pray
for leaders, clubbers, and missionaries that our AWANA ministry can continue to lead the children of our community to Jesus Christ and train them to honor and serve Him.
Thank-you for your continued support in this ministry! Help us teach, reach, and lead them because kids matter to God.
For more information feel free to reach out to us at (937)252-5311 or email us at email@example.com.

Phillip and Rebecca Wei are currently in Washington D C and in ministry with two different parts of CRU.
The first is Epic, a ministry focused on reaching Asian-American Americans many of whom grew up in church but drifted away as they attended college. Our hope is use our expertise from working with international students to reach this unique group of people.
The second is Design, a ministry for South-Asian Americans. Design is very new, and only has around 14 staff across the U S. Rebecca will be able to use her experience in South Asia to help develop a movement at the University of Maryland. Philip will also be researching working with refugees. All of these groups are under reached and we are excited to see how god will use us.
Please join us as we support Phillip and Rebecca in these unique ministries.
