I am so loving this series! Talked to one attender this morning who said she has been showing the videos to her co-workers and they want to know "where is this church?" Ha!
John Pennucci and I have already talked about doing a "The Tour" series again next summer with different songs.
Next Sunday is "Don't Stop Believin'" and my gut says it will be the best of the whole series!
Loved meeting new families today!
If someone were to ask me how Meadow is doing, I would say things are going awesome except financially. Financially, we are experiencing a serious downturn.
Our average weekly budget need is $4,200.00. The last 10 weeks that average has been $3,488. That is concerning and, unfortunately, we are making some cuts in ministry and saying "no" to some things we would love to say "yes" to.
It bothers me that we have to cut ministry. That means we will be hindered in our drive to advance the kingdom of God in our community and world.
I am putting together a "Pastor's Prayer Team". This would be a team of people I can depend on to pray for me every day and especially on Sundays. I would also share more specifics of what's on my mind, message writing development, etc. If you would like to be part of this team, let me know.
All-worship Sunday is coming up on September 10. These kind of Sundays are so timely. They really help me get re-focused on the main thing of my relationship with Jesus.
Starting a new series called "Can't Lose" on September 17. The packaging theme will be football, but the spiritual challenge will be pointed and significant. As a follower of Christ - you can't lose!
I decided against a regular weekly Facebook Live video interactive teaching. I will probably do it here and there to take a specific series to the next level. But there won't be a regular weekly video.
As I write this, I'm watching the Vikes play - or maybe I should say they are trying to play a game. Sheesh!
Still can't get over the awesome lake baptism today. Seven people! Wow!
An annual lake baptism just might become a part of our yearly calendar.
