1.) Good friend of mine, Craig Johnson, spoke an amazing message on the topic and what it means to #fail.
2.) We welcomed two families into our church; we call it partnership rather than membership. Members have rights, partners have responsibilities. I'm in such awe of the people God is bringing to Christ Community who want to run with our simple approach, "love God, love others."
3.) Along with Craig, another good friend, Joey Berrios, came and spoke to our teens. It was awesome to see a dozen young people hear the hope of Jesus and the plan He has for their lives.
4.) Despite the summer we are continuing to have people visit, come and come again!
5.) We prayed for and blessed our teenagers going to youth camp this week, excited to join them.
6.) We've been without a drummer on our worship team for quite some time and within a matter of a few days we now have two that we can rotate between. Today's worship was full and anointed.
7.) Church is fun again! I think most churches can over time get stuck or lose it's ability to just.....just have fun. I see all throughout scripture that Heave and salvation is paralleled to feast and parties and celebrations. But somehow we tend to think only after we die. Not me! If it's not fun then I want out. Christ Community is fun, filled with great loving people with more fun people coming every week.
