Here’s my weekly Highlights from my favorite place!
Zander was dedicated yesterday at the 10:30 am service. Baby dedication is not a Bible thing, but rather a way for us to pray over a new life and the parents who need to raise this little person. It’s a great reminder for all of us that we need to help guide and direct the young lives at our church. It takes all of us to love our kids! Congrats Pete and Rachel on the beautiful family you are creating!
Mark spoke on our emotional and spiritual Scars…such a heavy topic, but definitely one that we need to dive into. People get stuck when they get offended and can’t work through it. They can emotionally be frozen in time until they work through some of those issues in their hearts. Let’s be a church that forgives and grows!
Mike shared with me that they had a great small group night on Friday at Katie and Kevin’s…love it!
Rachael, our preschool director, was sick with the flu today, so I took over her job. She needs to be paid better! I was running all morning. The most hilarious part of that is that she has a huge team that makes the system function well and I was still exhausted!!! She’s an incredible leader and never allowed to be sick again! We can’t function without her leadership.
We had a volunteer training last night, but the first one of the year is always more like a recap of where we’ve been and where we’re going. It was FUN! Our staff is brilliant. There are no weak links in the bunch. It’s just one amazing person after the other and I’m blessed to work with them and call them my friends. North Creek Church has a great future ahead and I look forward to the journey.
Alissa lead worship yesterday. Such a beautiful voice! We picked up one of the worship team members at his house at 7:15 am yesterday. He’s a teenager. You have to really love God to call your pastor for a ride to church at the crack of dawn when you’re still in high school. He’s a quality young man!
It’s going to be a good week. Lots going on and lots to accomplish, but today I think I’ll enjoy a little of this beautiful sunshine. I hope that you are blessed!
