5-40-106 Challenge

Things are winding down here at Arcadia. Today is the first day of finals and many students will be gone by the end of the week. It has been an amazing year in so many ways. Our fellowship has almost tripled in size, several people have come to know the Lord, and those who already knew Him are seeking and longing to know Him more. What more could anyone ask?

Please pray for these students over the summer. It is easy to look at summer vacation as a break from everything. We think about trips to the beach, or lounging by the pool, but not usually about using this break from school work as an opportunity to spend more time in the Word.

That is why Greg created this challenge called 5-40-106. (You can click on the pictures to make them bigger)

Looks pretty cool, Huh? :)

Quote from the challenge:

120 days between finals and fall semester. How do you want to be different 120 days from now? Do you want to return in 120 days exactly the same or closer to Jesus?
Don’t let 120 days away from God turn you into a shadow of who you are right now.

In the challenge the students commit to pray for 5 of their friends, memorize 40 verses of Scripture, read 106 chapters from their Bibles and stay connected with someone who can keep them accountable.

Please pray for our students this summer as they take on this 5-40-106 challenge!

Greg, this is awesome! Good job on the design. It's really eye catching and a great way to keep students growing through the summer. Mind if I use it for some of my students?
