Good Morning!

I hope you are having a great week and anticipating Sunday worship. I have been anticipating gathering together to worship with you more and more. I have learned that the more I anticipate worship, the more I connect with God. If you need prayer boost I would recommend the book The Circle Maker by Mark Batterson which I just finished. I have found reading books on prayer on a regular basis help develop and motivate my prayer life.
A quote from the book I though you might enjoy: 'If you seek answers you won't find them, but if you seek God, the answers will find you."
We are in the middle of a series on discovering financial freedom. Here is a very good website if you are interested in more information about finances. We are investigating having a 6-week class to dig a bit deeper into this subject, more to come.
Meal Packing Mission Trip - 12/9/17 9-Noon
Please invite someone who is not connected with a church and SIGN UP HERE.
I will be leading the youth @ 9.30 on 12/3, 12/10 & 12/17. Come to the youth room, bring a friend and I will bring the donuts (and no I am not doing this simply because I want donuts!).
If you have a 30" or larger flat screen TV that is not being used, we could use this for our classes at church. Please email if you need us to come pick it up. Thanks!
There are 3 areas of ministry/service we are going to emphasize in 2018: Children's, Youth, Celebrate Recovery & Guest Services. There are a lot of different roles we have in each area, administrative, prayer, greeters, leaders, etc....pray about a place to serve, shoot me an email and lets visit. I fully believe that when we get organized, trained and prayed up, God is going to send people our way to minister to. I am very excited about our future, email me at and lets talk about your "serve/ministry."
Here is a great article on happiness. Enjoy!
The funny video, guy's don't hate me, you have been here!

Good Friday Morning to You!
Don't forget the time change this weekend where we 'fall back.' I want to thank everyone who was out at Trunk or Treat. Every year I am amazed at the number of people that come by our cars to receive some candy. I am reminded that we have a lot more to offer them than sweets - we have the privilege of sharing with those in our neighborhood the message that Jesus loves them unconditionally and will forgive their sins. These events are pre-evangelism type events and Gina is already planning for next year.
Please pray for the Celebrate Recovery ministry that we will be launching in 2018. I believe this ministry will be our greatest 'outreach' tool in our community. I also know that this type of endeavor needs a lot of prayer to get launched.
Here is an interesting article for those of us who are imperfect.
We are having a HUGE, FUN service event on 12/9 from 9-Noon. We are going to try and pack 18,000 nutritious meals for Haiti. We need about 50 volunteers - this is a great way to invite someone who does not attend church so they can serve and get to know us. More info to come, PLEASE register! Meals for Haiti - REGISTER HERE
Volunteer Opportunity
If you love the computer, know how to download items, print them off, forward emails, etc, we have a place for you to serve. Contact and learn a little more.
Here is a good article about PRAYER I wanted to share. Keep praying, God is up to something fun in our midst.
You have to admit this is funny.
