I’m so excited about the next few weeks that I really don’t know where to begin! One of the reasons I have so much excitement for the future is what God has been doing lately! We saw almost a dozen people make decisions to trust Jesus as their Lord and Savior this past Sunday! We need to CELEBRATE that! There were also several folks who signed up to serve as Connectors and join Connect Groups! I absolutely LOVE what God is doing in our church right now! This past Sunday was probably in my top five of all-time favorite Sundays!
I really believe that the next two weeks are going to be two of the best we’ve ever experienced at Connection. This Sunday (Palm Sunday) we are having our cookout and Egg Drop at Mill Creek following the service! Fellowship, hamburgers, hotdogs, and helicopters dropping eggs…IT JUST DOESN’T GET ANY BETTER THAN THAT! Step up and invite someone to church this week. Remember…it’s about His Kingdom not our comfort! (To refresh your memory I’ve got four words for you…bikinis and high heels! If you didn’t hear the message Sunday those four words make absolutely no sense to you so you’ll have to listen to the podcast!)
As has been the case for almost the last 2000 years, Easter follows Palm Sunday. As I was praying about Easter last week God literally downloaded the entire message into my heart in about an hour! I am beyond excited about getting to share it! Invest in someone’s life and invite them to hear the gospel that day!
One last thing…over the last couple of days our staff and board have been meeting with an architectural firm to dream about the future of the church and the facilities we will one day need. They joined us for worship on Sunday morning to see how we do things and get an idea about the ministry God has called us to. The one thing that impressed them the most was our Connectors! They said from the time they pulled into the parking lot to the time they took their seat someone was there to give them the exact directions they needed! I’D CALL THAT A WIN! I say it all the time and will continue to reinforce it…THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE SERVING AND RUNNING WITH GOD’S VISION ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF PEOPLE AND THIS COMMUNITY! Thank you…for your hearts for Jesus and for each other! Let’s keep running hard and fast after God so that our hearts will continue to be set on fire for Him and the people He loves!
