Today was a great day at the Coffee Church. Here’s my weekly highlights:
Starting Point began with 5 participants, 1 leader, and 2 apprentices…LOVE it! What a fabulous opportunity to grow in your walk with Christ!
I worked 2nd hour in the nursery and got to hold Amita and Eli. I also got to hang out with Karlie, who is a beautiful teenager in our church. Talk about a great hour…babies and a teenager…all of whom go home with their parents later!
Mark spoke on Regrets this morning. YIKES! What a topic! It was a great sermon and you can catch it online early this week. I’m so glad that we serve a God who doesn’t abandon us when we are stupid…’cause sometimes we are…just saying…
I have had a very strange week. God is definitely up to something because I feel like the theme song from the Twilight Zone is playing all around me right now. Everywhere I go, providential things seem to be happening. I’m pretty sure that God is up to something.
Rachael Yonko is my hero of the day! She is an AWESOME leader with a fleet of dedicated people working along side of her. She has a tender, loving, and merciful heart, and also knows what she believes.
My blog is offically linked to my Twitter account that will post it on my Facebook. Chris Harold told me to do it.
We have some big dreams for 2010…Some of them are to grow to 300 people, continue our trend of baptizing over 20% of our congregation every year, launch a second campus, double our operating budget to allow for funds to pay our staff this year, and launch 7 new small groups this year. We are also wading through the process of becoming a sovereign church and no longer a church plant. We are praying and believing God for the right timing of a service that reaches 18-25 year olds… WOW! It’s going to be a year of growth and blessing! What part gets you excited? Find out how you can be involved in making that dream a reality.
We have great people in our church! Want to be a part of it? You are always welcome!
Thank you for your encouraging words again!! I am humbled and honored. It is really all the amazing people around me who are the heroes! That and the precious children and teenagers!! I love them all!
I just wanted to say that Rachael is SUCH a blessing to my family! She’s been amazing with my little guy, and I can’t tell you how much it means to know the awesome care I am handing him off to each Sunday! 🙂
