The elders have made some staff adjustments to the school as a result of brother Don Walker’s passing. With prayerful consideration, they have chosen Steven Lloyd as the new director. In addition, Clay Bond has been selected to be assistant director of the school to balance and compliment the director. Matthew Gibson has been added as a full-time teacher and will begin with us in the fall. These men and their families have years of ministry and labor in the kingdom that speaks highly for them!
This last week we completed our annual Southwest Servants’ Academy. With 39 young men and ladies in attendance we had our largest group yet! They attended classes on how to study the Bible, how to build lessons, as well as practice some of what they learned throughout the week. There were song-leading/singing classes, lessons on humble service, and various activities and meals provided by area congregations. Thank you all for making this year’s S2A a success!
Coming Up Soon:
July 12 - Graduation Banquet for our 2019 Graduates! The banquet starts at 7:00 PM in the Annex at the Southwest church of Christ. Tickets are $12.00 a plate. Please register with the office - 512-282-2486
July 14 - Graduation Sunday. Guest speaker for the day is Trent Kennedy. We are thrilled for all our graduates - Scout Betz, Joshua Dugan, Garrett English, Rachel Garza, Brennan Hooper, Jonathan Lopez, McKenna Miller, & Danlee Queen - and the good works they will be involved in as they seek to glorify God.
August 12 - 1st Quarter Begins! We are excited for the first years becoming second years and perhaps 7 new students coming this fall!
During the month off, teachers will be preparing for classes, visiting area congregations for summer series, and taking a little time to breathe! One more piece of news we are excited about as well. During the month of July our SWSBS.EDU website will be changing significantly to be up-to-date and mobile-friendly. We do not foresee any downtime with the hopes of a seamless transition, but if you see the site down, know that it is under construction and will be up again shortly.
Have a blessed summer!
