It was back to school on Tuesday and back to church on Sunday…  It was good to see a large majority of people back from all of the summer vacations and weekend getaways.  Great crowd yesterday at LCC!

We have some great things happening at our church as we are just beginning the fall…

  • Our new kids church for K-5th grade kicked off a week ago and after 2 weeks I am hearing that kids are LOVING it!  They are loving the games, activities, videos, teaching, etc…they are having fun at church while being taught God’s Word.  Sherri and her teams are doing an excellent job.  It’s great to see so many new people and especially so many of our teenagers serving in the ministry each week.
  • The word is that it that there is a good chance we could move into the auditorium this coming Sunday.  There is just one minor electrical issue they need to resolve and then the school should receive the occupancy permit.  Pray that this happens.  We need to give the cafeteria back to our nursery and preschool ASAP.  We had about 30 babies and preschoolers meeting in the hallways yesterday…pray!
  • Our Meet & Eat September events are beginning to take place.  We ended up with 7 groups and 30 families participating in this connection event.  We are looking forward to getting to know better some of the new families in our church at our group meeting in a few weeks.
  • Our Fall Life Group registration began yesterday.  We’ve got some great studies and groups planned for this Fall.  My wife and I are hosting one on marriage for marriage couples or those who are getting married.  Check out the full listing here.
  • One of the items on our Fall Prayer Card is that we are praying for 100 first time guests between September and December.  We’ve had 7 so far, 93 to go…now let’s get busy inviting our friends, co-workers, neighbors, etc.  Let’s pack out that new auditorium!
  • Another bit of exciting news for this September is the move of our youth group weekly meetings.  Our Student ministry had outgrown the church office meeting space and are now using another church’s building on Thursday nights.  Check out the information on the student page.  We now have 30-40 regular youth attending…praise God for the space.

The RU Kidding Me? series continues this Sunday…join us at 10:30 am.
