Sunday sounded like a great day all around! I was out of town at my daughter’s gymnastics meet, so I had to stay up to date by texts and phone calls! We have a very capable team, so they really didn’t miss me on a logistical level, but nonetheless, I wanted to know how everyone was and what Jesus was doing at North Creek. It’s hard to be away from family!
We also had our Annual Business Meeting on Sunday to let everyone know how we ended for 2015. It was a year full of some monumental change, but God was so faithful through it all! If you missed the meeting, you can still pick up the booklet next Sunday.
As we announced, we have a contract on the Battle Ground building. We’ve already got a lot of questions about buying a new building. Here’s the facts at the moment: there’s not much on the market right now that works for a church, this process will take a while, and we need to build our monthly giving to put us in the best possible situation for our next step! In the meantime, pray, give, and get ready!
Our youth group right now is in the middle of a teaching series that is entirely preached by teenagers. I love that! There is no better way to engage students in ministry than to make them wrestle with what the Word of God is saying and how they can best share that with people in an impactful way. We have an AMAZING youth ministry that I am so proud of!
Growth Groups are going very, very well. I am in love with our new format of every other week with Bible based discussion. You can jump in any time, so get online and sign up now!
Thanks to Meghan for teaching for Andrea in KidCity last week! We love our kid’s team and are grateful for the investment they make into our most valuable people!

It was a long weekend for me personally as one of my daughter’s broke her hand and my other daughter had a really rough gymnastics meet. I was SO proud of how they both faced their challenges with grace, good attitudes, and determined hearts. Perhaps the best lesson that we can teach our kids is how to handle setbacks. It’s so important to get right back up and keep going when you go through a rough patch. On to better days!
I hope your week is full of Jesus! See you next Sunday!
