Thoughts from the weekend

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......
