I’ve just finishing up one of the busiest weekends I’ve had a in a while. More important than that it was also one of the most significant as we begin breaking new ground for CCR and developing a clearer idea of who Jesus wants us to be.
It started for me on Saturday morning with the 5 K walk against Domestic violence I participated in. I ended up walking 8.5 miles because after walking to the starting point – The Bar I then walked up to La Paz County Park and then turned around and walked back home.
I got home at noon and after a short break was back at the church building for our first Fall Festival. Attendance wasn’t all that great, but we did touch a few people and I was home around 8:30 or so.
Sunday dawned early for me as I woke up around 4:30. too stoked to sleep perhaps? After a long week of hard work the day arrived for not just a new sermon series, but an entire series of new things to roll out. Including in this was our new logo, new purpose statement and positioning statement (motto, tag line), new T-Shirts and best of all, our motto on one wall in the sanctuary that just looks fantastic!
Then I preached my first ever “tag-team” sermon. If you’ve never heard or seen that, it’s more than one person preaching one unified message. In this case Amy (my Associate Pastor) and I had all week on a message. I started it out, she did the middle and I wrapped it up.
It was pretty nerve wracking for me, but I think it went very well and Amy did a fantastic job as always.
Then after a quick lunch and change of clothes it was off to town for the wrap up of Red
Ribbon Week with Family Fun Day! We gave away a bike, had games set up etc. and were part of a huge event with other church’s and community groups, schools, etc.
Got home from that around 5 PM, updated the church website and had one call to make. Now I’m writing this up and then I’ll be done!!!
Now tomorrow it all starts again as we get ready for CCR Refocus week two and more big changes and new stuff coming your way. Including one (here’s the only hint you get) that’ll be evident to all of you on the internet.
With that I wish you all a good night and I’ll see you later.
