Dear Saddleback Family,
It’s Super Weekend at Saddleback.
First, I’m teaching on “How to see what you’ve never seen before” for Week #3 of 40 Days in the Word. This is an extremely important and practical message that you’ll use the rest of your life. The Bible will never be the same to you again. You’ll learn how to let God show you what He wants to show you.
Second, we’re honoring all boys and men who have been Boy Scouts to celebrate the 100th Year of The Boy Scouts of America. Scouts will participate in every service and present the colors.
Consider these facts:
Only one in four boys in America will become a Scout, BUT Boy Scouts account for…
64% of all Air Force Academy Graduates
68% of all West Point Graduates
70% of all Naval Academy Graduates
72% of all Rhodes Scholars
85% of all FBI agents
181 Scouts have become NASA astronauts – more than 50% of all astronauts
Out of every 100 Boys who Join THE SCOUTS:
12 will receive their first exposure to faith in God through Scouting
2 will become pastors
8 will choose a career based on merit badge work (Steven Spielberg, etc.)
1 will use Scouting skills to save the life of another person
1 will use Scouting skills to save his own life
17 will become Scout volunteers, giving back to their community
50% who reach the rank of Eagle Scout say they value what they learned earning their badge more than their college degree!
Third, this weekend, we begin a new tradition of recognizing “Baby’s First Day at Church” for any family who brings their baby to worship for the first time.
Fourth, we have super music planned for this weekend! See you! Love you all!
