Thoughts from the weekend:
There was a great spirit of relationship and family yesterday morning during our services!
Isn't it great to be a part of the body of Christ at Stone Church - where you are loved and accepted!
More and more, we are observing people from our surrounding neighborhoods "check us out."
I love it!
Applause to our Teen Bible Quiz team for sharing the book of James yesterday morning (from memory) - there is nothing like implanting the word of God into our spirits.
Pastor Charlie did a wonderful job of "bringing the Word".
We love you Charlie and Heather!
Reminder: If you would like to join our church family in membership - there will be two times in the coming two months to do so. Saturday, March 21st and Saturday, April 18th.
Reminder: Volunteer ministry training. Friday, March 13th. 7:00 P.M. to 9:00 P.M. Child Care provided.
It was a true treat having our oldest daughter, Christie, with us over the weekend. She is a wonderful wife, mother - and daughter to Debbie and I!
I can't tell you how thrilled I have been to walk into our church gym every Saturday morning and sense all of the energy of kids, parents and family watching and participating in our Upward Basketball games!
Many parents have commented as to how well the ministry program was run - and I would like to thank Mike Muchowicz and his staff of volunteers! Well done!
Children remain a priority at Stone Church!
I really liked the way Pastor Charlie incorporated the book of James and our church vision in his sermon yesterday.
Derek Rose hurt. Patrick Kane hurt. Chris Sale hurt. Three superstars. Okay, "injury bug" go away.
I believe that I am in the majority in that I am really, really ready for Spring. For those of you who continue to pray for snow and more cold weather - please stop. :) :)
Early reminder: We go to Daylight Savings Time this coming Sunday morning, March 8th. What you lose in an hour's sleep - you will gain by being in the presence of the Lord!
Wasn't worship meaningful yesterday? Many thanks to Pastor Brian and our worship team.
You are loved - you are needed - you have purpose - walk this week in the knowledge that you are a child of God.
With much love........
