Howdy NewSpring Church, SEVEN things I want to share with you today…
#1 - ONE HUNDRED AND NINTY ONE PEOPLE accepted Christ this past Sunday!!! THAT NEVER GETS OLD, I’m still so excited about that!!! We are seeing more and more than FOUND PEOPLE FIND PEOPLE…a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who is willing to embrace the uncomfortable and invite someone to church, it is making a difference!
#2 - Honestly, the “Water Into Wine” story in John 2:1-11 will always mean something special to me after this past Sunday. (PLEASE check out the message in 10 tweets right here in case you missed it OR if you just want a recap!)
#3 - In case you missed it…we handed out a card this Sunday when everyone was leaving that had Seven Promises From God on it and we asked our church to read through a promise per day and the verses that go with that promise. If you were not here and did not get a card you can go here and get it. Take it, get up in the morning (or before you go to bed) read a promise and then look up the Scripture in your Bible (maybe even pick a verse or two to memorize.)
#4 - This entire “Unleash” series has been AWESOME (the BEST EVER!!!) And…this coming Sunday is going to be NO EXCEPTION! I am anticipating a GREAT SUNDAY as I have the opportunity to talk about the ONE THING I want for EVERYONE who attends NewSpring Church!
#5 - I wanted to say a huge “thank you” to everyone who has purchased a copy of “Unleash.” (You can go here and do so if you want a copy…OR you can wait and buy one at your campus this Sunday as we will have them available in the resource area.) We were BLOWN AWAY to find out that it hit #2 on the New York Times Best Seller list (right here)...and we are so excited about all of the people that we feel like are going to be able to BREAK FREE from the things that have held them back for so long.
#6 - I’m asking everyone at NewSpring for your prayers this week as I will be speaking at the Catalyst Conference in Atlanta on Wednesday and on Thursday. It is an incredible honor for me to have this opportunity and it really is my heart that the Lord would use me to encourage the church leaders who are going to be in attendance.
#7 - Back in the spring we did our ADAM & EVE series where we challenged the men in our church to step up and be the men that God calls us to be in His Word (I Corinthians 13:11)...well, on Sunday, October 20 we are going to launch our EVE & ADAM series and for six weeks dive into what God’s Word says about being a woman who has her heart set fully on pursuing the Lord…and what that looks like in today’s world where it is seemingly becoming more and more difficult to be a woman who “has it all together!” I can’t wait to walk through this as a church…and…men, trust me, you are going to want to be at EVERY service b/c you will gain insight into your wife (or your future wife) unlike ever before!
That’s it for today!! I LOVE MY CHURCH!
