It was a great weekend as we got to celebrate with two more baptisms at Battle Ground. Every baptism has an incredible story behind it and I love to hear them all! God transforms our hearts and lives, not by our own effort, but by His grace.
Part of Sunday’s story that I love is that both of the ladies baptized were invited to North Creek by the same friend, Janelle. It was the perfect ending to the story that Janelle was in the tank with them as they proclaimed their love for Christ.
On the other side of the coin, it has been a heavy week with some of our church families dealing with loss in their lives. It is an honor to pray and stand with people during their highs and lows. That is the beauty of the church. For those of you who have had to say goodbye to loved ones this week, we are grieving with you and we love you!
We had our Annual Business meeting at Battle Ground on Sunday night. If you weren’t able to attend, you are welcome to ask any questions anytime about the finances and direction of our church. We love to talk about the faithfulness of God and our people!
We are neck deep in our series Strapped, which has led to lots of great conversations. Being financially stressed is NOT God’s plan, so if you are feeling that way, there is a way out!
A part of that way out is that we are offering a financial class this weekend taught by Rick Donovan. It’s Saturday from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm at the Hazel Dell Campus. This is one of those awesome opportunities to gain some incredible insight for FREE. Join us and experience the beginning of change in your life!
If you are missing these announcements, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll get you hooked up!
Also, if you want to volunteer, let me know! We especially need a more solid media team at Battle Ground, so if you like to push people’s buttons, we have the job for you.
On that note, stop pushing people’s buttons. God asked us to be peacemakers in a dramatic world.
We are praying that God would do miracles in the hearts and lives of those who call North Creek home. May you be blessed!
