Howdy NewSpring Church, SEVEN things I would LOVE to share with you today…
#1 - I absolutely loved having Clayton King with us at our church this past Sunday as he dove into, “The Man Mystery, Three Things That Every Man Needs!” It was SO AWESOME to see Jesus do what He so often does and draw people to Him through the preaching of HIS WORD—we saw 110 people receive Christ, and…as I always say…THAT NEVER GETS OLD!
#2 - THIS COMING SUNDAY IS MOTHER’S DAY!!! And, we will be concluding our “Adam & Eve” series by dealing with the topic, “The One Thing That EVERY WOMAN WANTS!” Trust me when I tell you that you need to be here, you need to BRING SOMEBODY and you might want to pack some Kleenex.
#3 - I am going to be spending next week visiting every NewSpring campus (there are a couple of combined campus meetings) where we will celebrate all that God has been doing and looking ahead to our next steps as a church…and even more specifically as a campus so that we can see 100,000 people reached every week! (I wrote all about the details yesterday in this post…check it out for times and places.) AND…at this meeting I will also be telling you about what is so special about August 24 & 25 and why I’ve been telling you to go ahead and block these dates on your schedule.
#4 - The very next series we are going to begin on Sunday, May 20 is entitled, “Weird!” (I ripped off this idea from my friend Craig Groeschel, who is THE BEST LOOKING pastor in America!!!) :-) We are going to spend SEVERAL weeks together as a church diving into the idea of why we should aspire to be weird…because normal is NOT working!
#5 - If I am not mistaken…I think we have a little over 150 spaces left for The Gauntlet. Parents, trust me when I tell you that this is ONE OF THE BEST investments you could ever make in the life of your teenager. I cannot put into words what the Lord does during this week every year in the lives of all who participate. (HERE is where you can get more info and sign up!) This event will be full by the end of this month, and so if you’ve been putting it off then NOW is the time to go for it!
(AND…THIS SUNDAY IS THE DEADLINE FOR THE 2ND PRICE BREAK!!! It is currently $325…it will go to $375 on Monday!)
#6 - I’ve joined the world of Facebook…here is the link to my site...stop by and say hello!
#7 - The trip to Israel that I was able to lead last week was absolutely amazing, one of the most incredible experiences I’ve ever had in my life. We will be going again as a church in about two years or so…so go ahead and start saving up now, I can promise you it will be worth every dime.
That’s it for now…I LOVE MY CHURCH!
