Hey everyone, SCF is officially on break for the summer.
It's been an amazing year and things have turned out well beyond our expectations. We're so thankful to God for everything as He's guided us, corrected us, and blessed us (quite often in spite of our fumbling and bumbling).
Truthfully, it was a lot of hard work and a lot of responsibility but totally worth it and God is faithful. He sees the heart, and does great things, no matter how weak we are. We don't rely on our own strength but we look to God, the source of all good things.
Just wanted to officially congratulate Jasmin on graduating from Sheridan's Bachelor of Arts Illustration program. We wish you all the best as you move on in life but we sure hope you'll come back and visit us too. We're really gonna miss her, and not just because she can bake delicious cookies. :)
Jasmin's been helping out at SCF for many years now including being President last year, booking rooms, speakers, doing posters, leading activities and discussions, emailing updates, planning and pretty much organizing everything. More than that, she was a great friend, a real encourager and fun to hang out with. She also plays a pretty good game of Dutch Blitz. We're sad to see her go but we know she'll find new ways to serve God and she'll always be a part of us.
Last year, we knew this was coming and were a bit concerned about the future. It was hard enough with just the two of us and we both burnt out at times, what would happen after she left? Thankfully, God provides. We're not just very glad, we're ecstatic to announce that many SCFers have stepped up and are volunteering in a number of ways. It is more than we could have asked or imagined.
Thanks to Edwin, Sagan, Bruce, Rachel, Faron, Carla, and Alissa for volunteering! We do have position names and details will follow but at this point what's important is the willingness to serve. We know it's going to be a phenomenal experience to see God work in our lives and the lives of others as we do our best to follow Him. If anyone else is still interested, there's always room for more - especially the musically inclined. :)
Lots of ideas around and many people have put in a lot of work already to prepare for next year. We hope to have a really cool program ready for you when we get back including a more organized big group meeting, fun events, guest speakers, and small groups! We'll keep you posted.
See you all when school starts up in the fall.
