Thoughts from the weekend:
Let me just say how grateful I am for all of our Upward Basketball volunteers who come out on Saturday mornings (most of them very snowy Saturdays) to facilitate this wonderful ministry.
I know that your heartbeat is to see kids and parents come to Christ. This is a great avenue to see that happen.
I like watching parents watch their kids play basketball. There is so much (justifiable) pride and joy in their eyes.
I would ask that you be in prayer with me for this important ministry - that God would continue to connect people to Jesus; and possibly to our church family.
Did we have a blast or what for our Valentine's Day party?
I sang "Fire and Rain" by James Taylor.
Pastor Charlie turned down the lights and people spontaneously lifted up the flashlights on their cellphones.
Starting my "world-wide" tour next week. :) :)
Again, many, many thanks to everyone who helped make it such a great evening, including some of the teenagers from our youth group who helped serve.
A special thanks to Debbie Flattery and Heather Bassett. Thanks for all of your hard work, ladies, in leading this wonderful evening.
It's amazing how much talent we have in our church. Those playing charades, played the game well!
Thanks to our speakers, Rich and Shellie Wotton. They did a fantastic job of sharing from 1 Corinthians 13, as well as their own personal pilgrimage.
Grateful to meet several visitors yesterday. We would ask that you continue to check us out.
God calls us all to a ministry of reconciliation.
To reconcile doesn't mean to resolve every issue. But to reconnect and have relationship.
The greatest thing you can do as a Christian is to walk in peaceful harmony with those who are around you.
I really like seeing the people of God worshipping, hands raised, voices lifted in praise and adoration.
You are important to us at Stone Church. The church needs you - you need the church - we really do need each other.
Can't wait for next Sunday to come - Excited about what God is doing!
Love you all......
