Well, I wasn’t at church on Sunday, but I heard great things, so I’ll share them!
This last Saturday we had our Financial Class lead by Rick Donovan. He did an amazing job! We will be sure to do more things like that to help you live a life of financial freedom. Thank you so much, Rick, for using the tools God has given you to bless people.
In the same vein, we have an amazing volunteer and staff team that are completely capable of leading this church on mission and with passion! I feel entirely fortunate to work alongside each and every one of you.
I also appreciate our church for blessing me to miss several Sundays this spring to attend my daughter’s gymnastics meets. It has been such an incredible journey with only the State competition left! She just completed Sectionals where she took 1st place and was asked to be a part of the All Star team at State. Someday I will blog the whole story, but I felt like God told me she was going to be a gymnast when she was 2 years old. To see her do so well is awesome…and a little crazy!
I forgot to highlight last week that our kids went to Nitro Kid’s Conference last weekend and had a BLAST! Both of my girls were on that trip and I so appreciate the leaders who gave up a good night’s sleep to invest in our kids.
We are having some pressure washing done at the Hazel Dell campus to get a jump start on the exterior work that has to be done…if you haven’t noticed, it’s a lot. If you’d like to give extra this month to help alleviate the cost, it will be several hundred dollars when all is said and done. We hope to have the outside of both campuses looking in tip-top shape by Easter!
We have two workdays scheduled at Hazel Dell. They are this Thursday and Saturday from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm. Bring gardening tools if you can make it! Kids welcome to help. At Battle Ground, we have some minor weeding that can be done at your convenience. Bring your tools there as well!
Also, our worship team is BUSY getting ready for our Good Friday service. There is only ONE at the Battle Ground campus on April 18, so plan to make the trip if you don’t live there. It will be WORTH IT and an incredible way to honor Christ this Easter season.
Did I mention that Easter is on April 20? Invite a friend!
Small groups are ending for the semester. It has been so much fun! We are looking for some new leaders for our summer groups, so if you are interested, let me know and my people can talk to your people!
