Well, I’ve officially survived 9 days without my husband and only have 5 to go while he is in Brazil and Argentina. I’m doing pretty well, but this is the longest we’ve been away from each other in 17 years. We have worked side by side for most of that, so it is really strange to have him gone. In the moments we’ve talked he has shared that God is doing a deep work in his heart, so I look forward to hearing all about that….soon!!!
Sunday was a great day at North Creek! The summer is winding to a close and we kick off things with great enthusiasm in the coming weeks! Simply Worship, a night of songs, prayer, and communion, is at the Hazel Dell Campus on Sept. 30 from 6:30-7:30 pm. It’s going to be an amazing night to let Jesus know how great He is. Plan to join us!
Also, Growth Groups registration is OPEN!!! You can sign up for a group online at www.coffeechurch.com. All of our groups this time are leading a Bible Study on the book of Mark. It’s $10 per person and it will be life-transforming! Sign up today!
I got a kitten while Mark was out of town. We needed some distraction from his absence and the girls thought this was a fabulous distraction!
I’ll blog again tomorrow more specifically, but September 24 is the EIGHT year anniversary of North Creek Church. What a ride this has been! So blessed, so very blessed….
Chris was out of town last week as well in Disneyland. I was in charge for a whole week and didn’t even paint anything or tear down a wall. I think I missed a golden opportunity!
Hazel Dell! We need some people who will jump in to some exterior projects that we are still finishing up. Do you like to stain decks? How about yardwork? Minor painting? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get you hooked up to help out.
I also babysat for the staff kids at the youth group on Thursday in Battle Ground. Both of our youth ministries need more babysitters…even if that’s only once a year, would you consider giving up two hours to help teenagers in our community? Such a creative way to make a difference!
Our church budget took a nosedive this summer and we would love your help to finish the year well. Would you pray about what you can give to assist us as we continue to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus? We could use about $15,000 to set us back on track. We end on budget every year and we are believing God to help us continue that trend. It’s a good idea for all of our budgets, isn’t it?!?!?! 😉
On another note, invite someone to church with you next week. It’s going to be a wonderful Sunday as we are in our new series, Risky Business. SO GOOD!
Thanks for being a part of North Creek! We love being your pastors!
