Our Graystone Students have loaded up on two buses and are heading to Centrifuge Camp in Laguna Beach, FL.  Please pray for a life changing week for these 68 middle and high school students.  It was at Centrifuge Camp in 1986 that Jesus changed my life forever.  Pray also for Alan, Allison, our interns and amazing volunteers.

You can keep up with the student camp this week at www.graystonestudents.com.  On the right side of the website, you can read the Graystone Students twitter feed which is updated several times a day.  For those of you parents who are kid free this week, ENJOY!

Yesterday at 2PM we had a prayer walk at the future campus of Graystone Walton.  I was a little late because I was talking with many new members of Graystone after our Newcomers Lunch.  It was our largest Newcomers Lunch in recent history.  PRAISE GOD!

As I arrived to the new property in Monroe, the front parking lot was filled with cars.  When I entered the building, I could hear singing coming from the part of the building that will be the future auditorium. It was amazing to see a group of Graystoners gathered in a circle worshipping God and praying in this new space.  Right now, it is an un-airconditioned warehouse.  In the near future, it will be a place of worship where lives will be changed for all eternity, and God will be glorified.  I just got chill bumps.


Surely the Lord is in this place, and I was not aware of it.  He was afraid and said, “How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God; this is the gate of Heaven.” Genesis 28:16-17

1. Graystone Kids will be at the Gwinnett Braves Game on Friday night at 7:00.  Come join us in the outfield lawn.

2.  Our Haiti Mission Team arrives home on Saturday.  Keep praying for them.  I can’t wait to hear all that God did in and through their lives.

3. Week 2 of The Man Series is happening this Sunday.  There will be “man songs”, contests, lots of testosterone, and much much more.  Ozora campus times: 9:30, 11:00, 12:15 and Walton campus times: 9:30 and 11:00.

4. Newcomers Lunch is Sunday at 12:15PM in the Student Room of the Ozora Campus.  Lunch and childcare are provided!  There is no need to sign up.  There is a seat with your name on it.

5. Prayer Walk at our future Graystone Walton Campus on Sunday at 2:00PM.  The property has been vacated, and we hope to close by the end of June. PRAISE GOD!  Before we begin any renovations, we will circle/cover/blanket the place in prayer.  The address is 723 N Broad Street (Hwy 11), Monroe, GA 30656.

Cooper did great, and the surgery was a huge success. PRAISE GOD! Cooper’s heart was in better condition than the doctor thought and the doctor didn’t have to do one of the procedures that he had planned.  So, the surgery was one hour shorter than expected.  Little Coop is recovering in the hospital.

Thank you EVERYONE for praying.  God answers prayer and is still in the miracle business.  The beat goes on.  Team Cooper is STRONG!

“Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” Matthew 18:19-20
