This weekend we had an awesome time together:
- The worship team was incredible (thanks, Jon and Jess and crew),
- We ordained David (who serves as the program director at The Village, overseeing all program and pastoral functions), and
- I enjoyed teaching you using some basic kitchen props and a Nerf gun! We’ll have the audio on the media site soon.
This week, we begin our summer break, similar to what we did last year- just as we’ve discussed for a few weeks now.
Someone asked me at the end of the service, “Wow! That was amazing! Why stop now, after 3 awesome weeks?!”
My answer was this: We’re not stopping while we’re ahead. Or ending on a good note. Rather, we’re stepping back to rest and rejuvenate. Our church is unique in that we don’t have a service day once year, once a quarter, or even once a month. Due to the nature of the ministries we’ve created, we run 24/7. In the same way that Jesus stepped back from the demands of day to day ministry to recharge, we’re taking a break to go on vacations, plan, and prepare ourselves to come back full throttle!
You are amazing- and we look forward to celebrating together again with you on August 31, 2014. We’ll still meet at the UCP building at 10:30 am.
We love you,
Andrew & Cristy
PS- By the way, that’s Labor Day weekend, so we’ll have plenty of BBQ and pie on hand!
