I’m still loving our current summer series, Age of Kings! I am enjoying reliving the stories of the different kings in the Bible and how they weave into our lives today. Chris spoke on Ahab from the Old Testament at Hazel Dell and Matt Bumala spoke on Herod from the New Testament at Battle Ground.
Pray for our Deaf Church as they are at camp this week!
We took our staff out for Snow Cones on Sunday for staff meeting. I’m not sure that is the group of people that need a sugar boost right before they need to sit down and accomplish things…Just in case you were wondering, Pina Coloda is the BEST flavor.
A young man accepted Christ on Sunday. One of our other young men had invited him because he’s in a pretty desperate place in his life right now. God meets desperate people! When was the last time you were desperate to meet with Jesus?
Speaking of meeting with Jesus, www.youversion.com can help you start a Bible reading plan. It’s a great resource to kick off your spiritual growth.
If you attend North Creek and aren’t tithing, my challenge to you is to try it for six months. I believe that you will be blessed by giving and holding on to your money so tightly is holding you back.
Here’s part of what will happen when you give to North Creek: We’ll have a thriving Youth Ministry in Battle Ground and a better home for our Hazel Dell Campus. These are our limitations at each campus currently and our budget is tighter than a hipster’s skinny jeans.
By the way, the Battle Ground campus is looking SHARP! Thank you to everybody who has painted, weeded, thrown out trash, raked, and planted to make it look great.
KidCity is in the middle of a competition between the boys and the girls to see who can give more to missions. That means my kids are making me do a ton of work to have a garage sale…how can I say no to that??? Here’s a hint if you’d like to help North Creek kids out: the girls outnumber the boys in our church 3 to 1. If you are a fan of the underdogs in life, hand cash to a K-5th grade boy.
Have I mentioned how much I LOVE our volunteers? We have dedicated and amazing people who pour into our church and community ALL the time. I love your hearts, your smiles, and your partnership! YOU are making a difference!
We start collecting school supplies this week for various Clark County schools. As you are shopping, please pick up some extras to share with needy kids! High needs items are: Crayola (Battle Ground schools only allow Crayola) broad & thin markers and Crayola colored pencils, book covers, Elmer’s glue sticks, self-contained pencil sharpeners, and cash to offset various needs.
Have a great and really hot week! Be blessed!
