Living the crazy life that God has given me!

Sunday Thoughts shared on Monday

The moments that you get to experience in the life of a church start are amazing.  Especially as a church start that is reaching people that don’t go to church.  I had a conversation with a lady today that is thinking about when to get baptized and if she will have recovered from her surgery in time for one this month.  I then had a conversation with a guy that came for the first time and was amazed that the pastor the church was wearing jeans and a Tap Out t-shirt.  He let me know that he was worried that his shirt would keep him from being allowed at church.  It was a rock band t-shirt, I just laughed and said I like that band too. So here are some of things that I thought about:

  • We had two people say “Yes” to Jesus.
  • We were blessed to have 17 people “Join The Team” at Elevation.  First time having dinner while we had the huddle it was awesome.
  • Otis Spunkmeyer chocolate chip cookies make even big guys smile. (Thanks Michelle for making them.)
  • In a church start that is portable there are still things that we forget to bring with us to church. (This Sunday’s programs. OOPS!)
  • That enabling people to belong before they believe is a huge thing.  We have had two guys this month alone that have been serving that said “Yes to Jesus”.
  • That no matter what you do there are always going to be things that will need to be tweeked and changed a little.
  •  The people on the team enable the team to be the best that you can be.
  • The series that we are doing “Make War” has caused us to really see that we are in a spiritual war. That we are excited to see that God is using us in this war.
  • That I miss seeing my son in the church on Sunday’s.  Had through that in since he has been off to school for two Sundays now.

I have to say that even though that it is Sunday night and I am a little tired, I CAN’T WAIT FOR NEXT SUNDAY!

What are you excited about when it comes to being at the church you attend?

  1. Thank you for sharing with me about what you thought. I am a work in progress and I am in the process of getting people in place to continnue to help me. I believe that even though that this blog is not perfect we are still a church that you should come and check out. The God that is running things is perfect and I am seeking to be more and more like him each day.
