- I was actually gone this Sunday. Took Riley hunting. Nothing like a father/son hunt.
- Turns out we had like 7 visitors. Our team is awesome at connecting with people. That’s what we do.
- I had a video from Andy Stanley queued up to watch. That guy is remarkable. I’d recommend any teaching you can get from him.
- We don’t have an audio recording. But we’ll continue with the Real series next week. Stay tuned!
- Great night at River City Church
- We had to switch things up a bit on the worship team: Eric played drums and Jamie led. They both did a great job!
- I feel like the worship team has really developed over the last 6 months or so. We’re definitely not the same team that we were a year ago!
- For that matter, all of the Sunday ministries have really developed over the last year. Our team has really stepped up their game.
- RCC, I just want to tell you that you have an amazing leadership team who loves you, cares about you, and prays for you on a regular basis. You should take a minute to thank them when you get a chance. They put a ton of prayer and time into River City Church. It shows!
- Here’s the sermon on Real Grace. I love preaching on grace. It’s definitely my favorite topic!
Just in case you care, to the right is a list of blogs that I read daily, or at least as often as they are posted. These are the ones that I feel are truly inspirational to me. If you are a church leader or church planter, or just want to learn more about church leadership and church planting, then I would highly recommend each of these. You can sign up for daily emails from each if you’d like. Enjoy!
- We had a great service last night. Worship was awesome, and we had 5 visitors that we were able to connect with.
- Started the Real series. Kicked it off with Real People.
- Have a listen!
Hey everyone don’t forget that we’ll be roasting a pig down at the Griz game this Saturday starting at 10am. Come on down, get some free food and drinks, and help serve the college students. We had a blast last time! Go to GrizPigRoast.com for more info on the pig roasts.
Also, we’re teaming up with E3 Church to throw a neighborhood Trunk or Treat Party and Bonfire on October 31st at the church building. So let’s get the word out to our friends and family, and particularly those who live in the Target Range area.
- We had a great night last night. It’s always good when God shows up!
- God spoke to me last week that he wanted to address crisis in relationships. Cool thing is he was speaking the exact same thing to Darin, our Connections Pastor.
- I really felt that God was going to do some big things in people’s lives last night, which he did.
- It seems like whenever I am expecting God to do something big, then we always have problems that try to distract us. Eric and Jamie were going to lead worship, but their son got sick during rehearsal and they had to leave.
- Thank you Jesus that Alex was there! He did an awesome job stepping up to lead at the last minute, even though he was fighting a cold.
- We made some changes to the lighting and stage backdrop. We’re still tweaking it, but I like the look.
- We also made some improvements to all of our transitions during the service. I feel like the entire service went more smoothly than ever before.
- Church isn’t about the decor and transitions, but these are things that can be a distraction if not done well. We don’t want to detract from what God wants to do in people’s lives on Sunday. So we are trying to remove any potential barriers to people drawing closer.
- I spoke on Crisis last night. I preached out of 2 Chronicles 16:1-9. King Asa of Judah was dealing with a relationship issue with a family member, Israel. They had a nasty separation a few years back, and Israel was back and causing trouble.King Asa was facing a crisis, which is defined as a “point of decision, or a turning point.” Would he walk in faith and trust in God, or walk in fear and unbelief and take matters into his own hands?
- So often we face crisis in our relationships and we choose to walk in fear and unbelief. This often manifests itself as pride, and it always leads to destruction.
- God wants to show himself STRONG on behalf of those who are loyal to him, but we have a part to play. We need to be loyal to him during crisis, not loyal to our flesh.
- King Asa ended up dying a miserable man, but it didn’t have to be that way.
- Crisis is like walking a fence. There are only 2 ways you can fall. You just need to lean the right direction, lean on God, and you’ll fall into his arms. He’ll be strong on your behalf.
- Don’t walk in fear and unbelief. Sowing to the flesh only results in corruption.
