SHIFT taking a break until October 6th

Since Shift began over a year ago we’ve endeavored to fulfill our vision for young adults at City Church:

Shift exists for young adults seeking deeper connections in Christ-centered community.

We’ve met a lot of amazing people in their journey in Life and in Christ. People who’ve pursued new job opportunities, completed their degrees, been deployed or transferred, gotten engaged, married, and expanded their families with children. It seems SHIFT could not have been a more appropriate name for this group. Our lives are full of transition, change, growth, and movement.

Shift itself is in a period of reflection and evaluation and we have decided that Shift will be taking a short break. Shift will not be meeting for the remainder of August or all of September and will resume on Sunday, October 6th.

As we approach October 6th be on the lookout for more information through email, our Facebook page or on this blog on what you can expect when Shift starts back up.

p.s. We did want to mention two upcoming opportunities for us to get together so we can remain connected during our break. The first is a San Antonio Missions baseball game on Saturday, August 24th. The second is a trip to the San Antonio Zoo on Saturday, September 7th. We will send a separate email in a day or two with more information for these two happenings.




A Vote and a Prayer

This Sunday at Shift we’ll be talking about prayer and as I was preparing for our gathering I came across a prayer that I thought appropriate for all of us who went to the polls early and those of us who will be performing our civic duty sometime today.   So, if you’ve already voted or you’re heading out sometime today, here’s a prayer to contemplate for yourself and for every decision of conscious being made in our nation today.  —  Al


What a privilege it is to choose our leaders.  We can listen and think and decide who will run things.  We cannot take this lightly, Jesus.  You have given candidates different gifts and different ideas about how to lead.  You have blessed us with a nation that allows us to choose.  In no small part, our destiny is in our hands.  Today we make a decision about who will make the decisions for us.  Help us choose wisely.  Help us choose with respect for those who will stand at the front and say, “This is what we are going to do.”  Help us remember that those we disagree with are not our enemies.  Thank you for this opportunity, Jesus.  Let us use it to your glory. 

“Make the Master proud of you by being good citizens.  Respect the authorities, whatever their level; they are God’s emissaries for keeping order. . . Exercise your freedom by serving God, not by breaking the rules.  Treat everyone you meet with dignity.  Love your spiritual family.  Revere God. Respect the government.” 1 Peter 2:13, 16-17


Communitas CANCELED THIS THURSDAY, June 16th

Due to poor planning and a brain lapse on our part, we have to CANCEL THIS THURSDAY. 😦 Al Guajardo, Kyle Mounts and Sharayah Mounts will be attending a Youth & Young Adult Leadership conference in Houston this Wednesday — Saturday. So Geek Week is postponed until next Thursday, June 23rd. Make sure and let everyone know!
