Where would I even begin to share my thoughts about yesterday’s services. GOD IS SO GOOD!! So here are some random “Foggiest Ideas” to share what is in my heart this morning.
-We serve an amazing God! I wouldn’t want any part of this if He isn’t in it!!
-We have the best team I have ever seen. Starting with the pastoral crew and every volunteer that helps us do what we do.
-Set-up went well! Thanks for everyone for all they did getting to the theater so early.
-We pulled off a 7:45am service. It was pretty full. I kept thinking I hope people show up for the next two services.
-Stephen and the worship team were OFF THE HOOK!! We started the services with U2, It’s a beautiful day. It was awesome. Props to Stephen and the crew for all they did to prepare for the Easter weekend and to lead us in worship! The music was awesome.
-HUGE thank you to all of our ushers, greeter, coffee team and everyone involved in helping to get our kids in and out of their areas. It was fun to see so many people at work taking care of all the details!!
-The crew that improvised (under Charles’ direction) and got the next service lined up outside theater 8 saved us. I couldn’t believe the crowd when I hustled out to greet the people leaving the first service.
-Emilie did an incredible job with the children’s ministry. She had huge numbers of kids and the Kidz Church team knocked it out of the park. I heard so many awesome comments from parents as they were heading out of church.
-Our Preschool crew handled a bunch of kids without any glitches. On a day like we had this takes amazing leadership and gifts to help these young ones learn about the Easter story. Props to the Preschool Crew. Thanks for loving our kids the way you do!
-Jill and the nursery crew did well facilitating all of our youngest kids. I haven’t seen the final numbers on how many children they had in the nursery but if the rest of the crowd was any indication I am sure that it was CRAZY. Thanks for all your hard work.
-By the time we were done with the 2nd service the line waiting to get into theater 8 was all the way out the front door of the theater. What an amazing day. What a crowd. Many of us had tried to guess how many people we would have on Easter Sunday and lets just say that I thought my guess was crazy big and we exceeded that by over 100 people! WHAT A DAY!!
-I am so excited and grateful for the momentum that we have as a church. However, I know that the work has just begun. There are so many people in Castle Rock that don’t have a church they call home. There are so many in our valley that need to know about the Lord. We have a lot of work to do. As long as we all remember that church is a tag-team-sport, we will continue to see God do some amazing things!!
-A special thanks to each of you that took that serious and invited your family, friends, neighbors and co-workers to come with you to Easter service. It worked and we saw God do some amazing things.
-Special props as well to Mike and Louis who helped us with our Easter mailer. I don’t know how many people came because of the 5000 piece mailer that we sent out but we had hundreds of hits on our website on Sat. and Sun. Denver Advertising knocked it out of the part and I really appreciate their help!
-Thanks to everyone that celebrated with us yesterday. We exceeded our highest attendance by over 200 people. AMAZING!!
-So this week we start 31 new Journey Groups and the 40 Days of Community campaign. The momentum is crazy and God is doing it! Gary has the campaign ready to roll and we are super organized because of his efforts. Stephen has our leaders trained and we are ready. Our prayers for this Easter and now for the campaign are that we would see God doing immeasurably more that we could imagine or ask! That is a big prayer & IT IS HAPPENING!!
THANKS TO EVERYONE FOR ALL OF YOUR HARD WORK THIS WEEKEND!!
I WOULDN’T WANT TO DO THIS WITHOUT YOU!!
PRAISE GOD FOR ALL HE IS DOING!!
It is a joy to be part of of Plum Creek. Hang on my friends, we are in for an amazing ride. So as we have said hundreds of times…”Finding Faith Should Be Fun, So Join Us On The Journey!!
