May 1 Highlights

It’s the weekend dropped between Easter and Mother’s Day! What a unique calendar this year with a late Easter and an early Mother’s Day?!?!? It’s a roller coaster of celebrations!

It was the opening day of small groups registration and we have some FABULOUS groups! A couple I want to highlight today: Starting Point. If you are newer to a relationship with Jesus, this is an AWESOME place to start. I cannot recommend it more! Also, Josiah and Vanessa are leading a group for marriages, particularily people married under 5 years. We have a lot of new marriages in our church and it is our goal to keep them SOLID until death do us part! One way is to surround yourself with other marriages that are focused on Jesus and staying healthy.

We had several guests who read about us in the paper and wanted to come and check it out. I would want to check it out, too. Lots of good things going on right now!

We received a tin full of money from KFC on Sunday morning. They are located next to the new building and heard about what we want to do! Come on! I love when our community wants to be involved! They were robbed at gunpoint two weeks ago. Let’s change Hazel Dell!

Are you giving to 19 Cents of Faith? What is God telling you and how are you acting on it? It’s time to figure out what you are going to sacrifice to make it happen. We want you to be a part of the story that God is writing! It’s going to be an epic tale! I can’t wait to read the book!

I am thoroughly enjoying this process of listening to our community and finding out how we can best partner with Vancouver to make this a great place to live. Mark and I both feel that we’ve are on learning overload! It’s been fun!

Isn’t our worship team doing a fabulous job of helping us connect to Jesus through music? So impressed!

Did you know we have about 120 volunteers who serve our church every month? That’s very impressive as well. We are abundantly blessed with people who give a little bit of time that makes a big difference in our church and in our community.

See you on Mother’s Day!
