Two people received Jesus this morning! That is so AWESOME!
In spite of the snow storm, the morning went incredibly well.
First service attendance was down but second service was back up again.
I'm enjoying the series. Its a short one (just three weeks), but its been refreshing.
What's been your take on "Fear Not" so far?
We are less than two weeks away from one of the real highlights of our year - "Rockin' Christmas Eve"
If you haven't been to a Rockin Christmas Eve service - you are in for a real treat as we totally celebrate the greatest birthday of all time!
I've seen the plan and there will be A LOT of Christmas music - some to just listen to and some to sing along with. It's going to be awesome!
Maybe make a new Christmas tradition of coming to "Rockin Christmas Eve" then spending time with family and/or friends.
AND you've got to do everything possible to invite your friends. This is one of the few times during the year when those who don't normally go to church are open to coming IF they are invited.
I've already invited some neighbors who said they would love to come. Gonna invite a few more!
Don't forget ... no services on Christmas Day (Sunday). But we will be back into our normal schedule on Sunday, January 1.
Baptism is on January 1. What a great way to kick-off a new year but to get baptized and publicly identify with Jesus letting others know you are a follower of His!
Have an important meeting this week with the architect who is designing the remodel of our lobby for Phase 2 of Building the Dream. I'm pretty pumped to see what he has come up with!
Got some expensive news this past week...the roof-top heating and air conditioning units need to be replaced. $15,000 each! That's a big OUCH!
I really believe we are standing at the door of seeing God do some amazing things at Meadow! It really is the church where lives are being changed!
Did I mention our Rockin' Christmas Eve services? Three services at 3, 4, & 5 PM. So pumped for them. Can't hardly stand it!
Thinking of smoking up some ribs or another brisket. I can smell and taste them all ready!
What teaching series are we kicking off with in January? ... "No Perfect People Allowed" - yup. Gonna talk about how God majors in using imperfect people like you and me.
After that will be a series called "My Church is _____" which I'm working on now and my gut says this will be a HUGE series for us as a church.
We've restructured the staff and Leadership Team. The change isn't real noticeable but it will pave the way for increased growth, more effective ministry, and higher level of involvement by more people.
Anyway...that's about it.
Oh...did I mention our Rockin' Christmas Eve services? Start praying for and inviting your friends and neighbors!
