Its been a good weekend and start of a new week! Thought I'd give a rundown of all that happened and what got me stoked:
-Christie's family came down on Friday and we hung out for the weekend. Went fishing Saturday morning and night. Her brother is new to the fishing deal, but caught a few. His head exploded with conceit! I don't think he realized that I still caught more than him :-) (that sound was my head expanding)
-Had an awesome Sunday! Worship.... off the chart! God rocked it on the message. Did something a little crazy........ I came in riding a surf board being carried by some strong dudes with a "big waves" video playing on the screen (my family vacation video ;-) I talked about how most believers never mature, but stay in the surf being rocked by the wind and the waves, instead of climbing onto the "surf board" of God's will and experiencing an awesome ride.
-The bomb of the month for me was baptizing 10 people on Sunday night! We baptized couples and parents with their children. If you missed it.... oh my goodness!!! Nothing is sweeter!
-We kick off Life Groups Next week. Can't wait to see God touching lives as people connect to grow, serve, and become more like Jesus together!
-If you are a church planter or pastor, you need to check out the Network Plus event later this week. Glenn Smith from Houston Texas (an awesome church systems, leadership, planting guru) will be at Riversprings Church in Chapin. Always worth it to hang with and learn from my friend Glenn!
