Aaron, the worship team and creative team have done a great job of making this a very memorable series.
One unexpected side benefit from yesterday’s message has been the number of people who have told me or e-mailed me about giving something else up for the 30 day challenge.
In other words, they don’t drink alochol, but they are giving up chocolate, coffee, caffine, fast food, Mt. Dew, TV, for 30 days to make sure nothing has higher precedence in their lives than Jesus.
I realized yesterday after I sent out Inside Today’s Experience’s that Easter was one year ago yesterday. This means for the second year in a row we broke our attendance record on the 4th Sunday of March.
Friday and Saturday Lisa and I travelled to Cove Valley Camp for a 2-day leadership retreat with about 40 others from the church to pray and discuss about what the next 6, 12 and 24 months may look like in the life of CFCOG.
Let me just say…buckle up tight, the adventure is just now beginning.
God has such incredible things in store for us to do…the key is staying faithful to Him and trusting in Him more than our own wisdom, the economy, the President or anything or anyone else that may tempt us to stray from the vision He has given us.
Was really disappointed to get home and watch my Terps get crushed by Memphis in the tournament. I at least thought they’d keep it close but Memphis shot the ball incredibly well.
This week should be a good one.
Sometimes when we get done on Sunday’s I think…”Oh no only 165 hours until we have to do all this again”, but right now I can’t wait for Sunday to get here…
We’ll be talking about temptation and I believe God is going to set a lot of you free in amazing ways.
As always do whatever it takes short of sin to get someone to the Experience with you.
