What a whirlwind of a week! Mark fell asleep on the couch with two little girls snuggled up with him this afternoon…the perfect end to a very full and blessed week.
On my list of weekend highlights is definitely yesterday’s work party to paint the church! What a blessing…about 40 people painting, planting, sweating, and breaking their backs to make our building bright and shiny. I loved it! Great attitudes, giving it their best shot to do a great job. I can’t wait to see the finished product. We’ve got a ways to go, but we’ll make it!
About 100 cars on Saturday honked as they drove past the church. I’m assuming that they were glad to see the corner getting some attention. It has a history and we intend to give it a new story!
LOTS of guests today! It was a juggling act to meet everyone. Missed a few, but tried really hard.
I asked my daughter, Kennedy, if she was still going to be a singer when she grows up. She said, “NO! I’m going to be a ROCKSTAR!” Go, Kenney, go! Just do it for Jesus!
Stood in the foyer talking with Mike, the biker, about how we can accomodate some more of his biker friends into our church. We’re going to work on some motorcycle parking in the front of the church in that “wasted” parking lot space. Cool idea, huh?
Mark preached a great message today. This series continues to be very pivotal in the life of our church. Can’t wait to see how God brings it all to completion.
We might be the only church around who had newspapers covering all of the windows, due to the painting project. Thanks for everyone’s patience! We’ll get there!
Pastor Kim is being superwoman. Due to some changes in her life she needed to get a full time job. She was in there rockin’ it with our kids this morning with her normal enthusiasm. We love you, Kim! We’re believing for God’s blessing in your life.
We had a guest comment on how great it was to have teenagers worshipping in the front row. That’s funny because I’m so used to teenagers being EVERYWHERE that I forget how unique that is. Very proud of how intergrated our church family is from the oldest to the youngest!
On Saturday, Darcy went and got a rototiller donated and churned up all of the dirt by the sign out front. I didn’t even know what she was doing half of the time, but next thing I knew she had planted periwinkle, got some plastic and rocks to make a path for pedestrians, and was loading up trash in her trailer! Thanks for your hard work…it looks awesome!
I hope you have a great week. Mine will be full of painting and projects, but I am excited!
