THANK YOU to everyone who worked so hard to make this weekend happen! It was a mad dash to the finish, but Hazel Dell was up and running in their new facility! It was smooth as butter all morning with very minimal adjustments here and there. It was almost like we had been there for years…
Meanwhile at Battle Ground, both the hearing church and the deaf church had a great service to start the year. We are so excited for what is in store for us in 2014! We plan to take some of the creative design elements that we implemented into Hazel Dell and update BG next. Can’t wait!
We have been seeing lots of new guests walk through our doors at all of our campuses, so make sure you meet someone you don’t know every weekend. It’s the magic of North Creek that we have people who really care when families walk through the door on a Sunday. We appreciate your hearts!
Our youth ministry had a wonderful start to their new home in Hazel Dell on Thursday, too. They were just shy of 100 people in the building and it was awesome to see a packed house! We love our teenagers! If you are looking for a way to serve in that arena, email Kris at firstname.lastname@example.org. She needs everything from small group leaders to people who will come and watch the doors on a Thursday. Grab a book, grab a chair, and serve our teenagers!
Also, if you are interested in running media, we could use a few more people at both campuses in that ministry. You can sign up to volunteer at www.coffeechurch.com.
My highlight story is that my daughter got to give a Bible to one of her friends this weekend. The Word of God is HOPE, LIFE, and WISDOM! The gift of a Bible is the gift of understanding God.
I want to say a special thank you to those of you who financially give to our church. NOTHING we do is possible without the funds to do it and we don’t take it lightly when you give your hard earned money to our church. We added $1500 to our monthly budget with the purchase of the building, but we trust that we will continue without issues because of the number of people who have jumped in to make it happen.
Here are just a couple of pictures of some of the Hazel Dell foyer space. I should have taken pictures of the Kid’s rooms, because they are OFF THE HOOK! They are an unbelievable blessing as North Creek is a kid-heavy church. They have PLENTY of room to play, learn, and grow in their church!
I hope you have a really amazing beginning of this new year! It is starting off with a bang at North Creek and it will only get more exciting as we continue to trust in Jesus to guide us, provide for us, and show up in lives in miraculous ways. Here we go!
