Thoughts from the weekend:
After attending our leadership summit this past weekend - I am excited about the present and future of our church!
(I think it is a wonderful thing when the lead pastor gets excited about the church!) :) :)
Friday evening, close to 50 volunteers and leaders gathered together to discuss momentum in the church - and truly we have momentum!
It was wonderful to sense the energy in the room and the passion and vision of our volunteers!
(Lots of exclamation points today)!
And then - on Saturday, we as deacons, elders and staff gathered together. Dick Hardy (our church consultant) had us do an exercise where we all went around the room and "said something nice" about each leader.
A lot of tears were shed as we all realize - "hey, we are a good group of guys"!
It is a privilege to serve with our leadership team.
It is a privilege to serve with our ministry leaders.
It is a privilege to serve with our volunteers.
Everyone's faithfulness, commitment and work is a continual source of encouragement to me!
Friends, know this: It is right, proper and healthy - to stand back everyone once in a while and say to ourselves, "we have a good thing going on here"!
If we were all together, I would, at this point, encourage all of us to turn to the person next to us and say, "We have a good church."
We have a good church filled with good people.
Easter is coming soon. I encourage you to brainstorm with the Holy Spirit on who you can invite to our Easter Sunday services, April 5th. Everyone is welcome!
Many, many thanks to Dick Hardy (our guest speaker/consultation) this past weekend.
I believe that "inspirational" is the word that comes to mind.
Why not contact Pastor Brian about attending a life group? You won't regret it. Connecting with others will enrich your life - and theirs.
Membership "Saturday" is this coming Saturday, March 21, 2015. Child Care provided. 8:30 A.M. to 12:00 P.M. If you haven't signed up yet - no worries - we encourage you to come!
I want you to know that our entire church pastoral staff (and spouses) love, appreciate and pray for you on a continual basis.
Love you all........
