Made it through both services without hacking up a lung.
Best thing about the great attendance is that it is made up of great people!
Matt & Jasmine Riedel are "coffee heroes". The coffee machine broke and they still made coffee by manually pouring water through the coffee grounds into the pots! Way to go Matt & Jasmine!
Had a fanTASTic meeting with the staff after church today to talk about the possibility of getting a new auditorium sooner than we thought! More on that still to come!
Sunday, December 3 is "One Church. One Vision" - for that Sunday only we are bringing both services together into one huge celebration! I ... am ... so ... PUMPED for this!
We're going to celebrate what God has done this past year and look forward to what we believe God is going to keep doing this next year!
AND...we'll hear real-life stories of real-life Meadowites of how God has impacted their life through Meadow!
AND...the band is going to be totally rockin' out the music and worship!
AWESOME doesn't even begin to describe what it will be like!
Vikes won! They are looking really well - first time both offense AND defense are clicking.
Had a great talk this past week with a national consultant on church stewardship confirming our strategy for adding the new auditorium.
Next few weeks are going to be extremely revealing to this possibility.
I'm thinking about starting a Bible study focused on leadership and growing as a leader. Any one interested? It will probably be an early morning study.
We're doing a special Christmas offering this year different than what we have done in the past. We've set a challenging goal to purchase equipment for our kids ministry and worship/tech ministry. Stay tuned for more explanation.
Did I mention the "One Church. One Vision" service on Sunday, December 3rd? (It's going to be beyond awesome!)
I am so excited about Meadow right now and what our future looks like!
