Thoughts from the weekend:
I remain "jazzed" about all of the parents and kids who come to Upward Basketball on Saturdays mornings - from outside of our church family.
Truly, this is a powerful outreach to our community!
BTW, one of our goals is to start Upward Soccer in the spring of 2015. I would ask that you be in prayer with us concerning this endeavor.
Debbie and I were taken to (my second) (her first) Chicago Blackhawks game this past Friday by Bill and Collette Vandervelde. We had a great time!
That sport can be addicting, especially when you see it in person.
Loved hearing the National Anthem song, with over 22,000 people cheering during the entire presentation!
I understand that we were fortunate to go to one of the best games of the year - against the Anaheim Ducks - who are one of the best teams in the league.
The game is so fast - faster than you can really tell on television.
The Seattle Seahawk's Richard Sherman is a very self-assured young man (note his interview after the game yesterday).
Denver - Seattle in the Super Bowl. Offense versus Defense. Should be a great game. My prediction as to the score - coming next week.
Our "snowbirds" our heading to Florida for the winter this week (from Stone Church). May that have safe travels is our prayer.
Every few weeks, we have a service that stands out above the rest. Yesterday was one of those days for me.
Excellent worship. Many, many thanks to our worship team - lead by Pastor Amanda.
Great spirit of relationship.
I trust that you are catching our theme (vision) for 2014. The year of outward connection. Again, we encourage you to invite and bring someone either to a small group or to one of our Sunday morning services!
Grateful for two families who visited yesterday.
God continues to do great things in the midst of a long, cold and snowy winter!
Love you all......
