Each Tuesday I want to share some things with you that are on my heart and/or important for you to know about…here’s the first installment…
Four things I want to share with you today…
- I’m STILL pumped about all that God did on Sunday! I know of at least one girl who gave her life to Christ and entered the Kingdom of God…We need to CELEBRATE! (Luke 15) My prayer for you and challenge to you is that the celebration doesn’t just happen from 10:45 – 12:00 on Sunday morning, but that it overflows into our families, workplaces, and the rest of our lives! God is not a part of our lives…He IS our life and authentic worship and rejoicing in the life He gives draws people to Him!! (Acts 2:9-11…DECLARING THE WONDERS OF GOD)
- Don’t miss the Vision Dinner on July 10th after church (Free lunch WOOHOO!) This is an awesome time for our staff because we get to talk about the vision that God has called us to as a church. We get excited about CONNECTING PEOPLE TO GOD AND PEOPLE TO EACH OTHER!! This is the first step in becoming “More than a Member” at Connection. We don’t have members because that typically denotes that you “attend”. We believe God has called us to be CONTRIBUTORS and not just CONSUMERS! WE ACTUALLY HAVE THE PRIVILEGE OF CONTRIBUTING TO THE GROWTH OF GOD’S KINGDOM! How could we not want to be a part of that!
- I want to ask you to be praying that we would baptize 100 people in the year 2011! It sounds crazy that we would ask God for more baptisms this year than we saw in the first two years…but we serve an Ephesians 3:20 God! Let’s invest (share your heart for God, testimony, invite people to church) in the people around us and invite them into the Kingdom through Jesus! If you have accepted Christ as your savior and haven’t been baptized with water…YOUR NEXT STEP IS ON JULY 17TH! (The next baptisms)
- Finally…I LOVE OUR CHURCH…PERIOD!!!! As I stood at the altar praying for people this past Sunday I was reminded again why we started this church! Connecting people to God and to each other NEVER gets boring!!
I CAN NOT wait until this Sunday! Bring a friend! See you then!
