So here's some exciting news... Connection Church (the amazing group of Christians and pre-Christians I serve) is growing into two services this Sunday!
The shift became obvious in recent months when we started running out of elbow room, but it's more than an attendance thing. I truly believe that this shift will allow us to stay intentional in tracking people's stories better, not to mention expanding the possibility for new "learning communities" (i.e. classes, etc) that would run during one of the services.
Anyway, it's pretty exciting stuff and brings me back into the familiar territory of preaching the same message more than once on a weekend. Some people worry that this might wear me out, but it actually energizes me. (Although there was a season of ministry in another church where I was preaching up to four times in a weekend... I'd need to hear from the Holy Spirit before taking that on again.)
So please pray for us and the work that God is up to (that He's invited us to be a part of).
