What a fun day!!!! We took part of our staff meeting to celebrate our Hazel Dell Children’s Pastor, Kim. She began her first day of full time work with North Creek this week. She was completely surprised as all of our staff kids threw her a carnival complete with games and candy. It was such a nice break from the “normal” routine of life to watch our kids party and our team laughing! Sometimes no business is the best kind of business!
We had a great sermon in all three churches on being truly Alive in Christ, which has been a phenomenal series from start to finish. I think we forget the awesome freedom we have in Jesus to be free of our sins…not once, but for a lifetime!
We dedicated baby Kingston, with parents Marc and Amy, at Hazel Dell. We can’t wait to see him grow up in his wonderful home, surrounded by people who will instill Christ’s love in his heart.
We had several new volunteers at Battle Ground this weekend as well! We are appreciative as Battle Ground grew quickly and we have lots of babies and kids to take care of each weekend. Such great problems to have!
We are investigating the Hazel Dell building with the potential of a longer term investment for the future. Did you know that there is enough power in the building to run a Safeway with all of their freezers, fridges, and lights? Good news in case we ever need a freezer section… We’ll keep you updated on this process and let you know what we think. That current building sits on 2 acres with over 16,000 sq ft. of building space in total. With renovations and a great deal of paint, it would make a world of difference!
Really looking forward to our upcoming sermon series called Us. It’s on relationships, but don’t let that stop you single people! The best time to learn about how to have a good marriage is before you are actually in one.
We are doing baptisms at Hazel Dell on Sunday, so if you’re ready to get baptized, fill out the form HERE. We love to celebrate life change at North Creek!
Make sure you take some time to Be Present in our community this week! Find someone to bless and bring value to in your world! Be blessed!!!!
