I’m so excited that, because Lindsay and Jack VanHook have been working tirelessly, the free download for The Hour Has Come is here: https://thecolleyhouse.org/store#!/Digging-Deep-2021-2022-The-Hour-Has-Come-FREE-DOWNLOAD/p/384587391/category=0 Feel free to download and then print as many as you need. Please do not reprint the spiral book itself. We appreciate your help in that way.
The study officially begins in two days on September 1st. Watch the video here (https://thecolleyhouse.org/digging-deep-introduction-video) for potential answers to questions you may have.
SPARK was a big success! Thanks to all who contributed money or food, helped teach all ages, and worked so hard in lots of capacities. You were generous and sacrificial beyond what I could have dreamed! I learned so many things from so many people! I am just thankful to God for this gathering.
T-shirts are being ordered one more time, but if you want a shirt or hoodie, your order must be placed at www.thecolleyhouse.org/store by September 10th.
Don’t forget to tell your husband’s about 2021-22 Men’s Digging Deep. It will enrich your household. I promise.
And if you were named on the SPARK reveal as a finisher who is receiving a free DD tea towel, please remit upon receipt of the tea towel, three dollars for postage. You can PayPal the postage to firstname.lastname@example.org. Those who were present, of course, have already received theirs and the others are going out tomorrow.
