Weekend Recap – 8/29/2010

I love the weekend so much that I’m often re-living the great things we saw and heard the next day.  So, I thought I would take a moment to recap some of the highlights from this past weekend.  I may do this every Monday.

  • Our 10:30 experience was packed full.  Thought we were going to run out of chairs at one point.  I’m praying we fill it so much on 9/12 that we have to ask our regulars to stand along the walls!!  Praying the other times fill up as well.
  • Band was spot on and worship was off ‘de hook!
  • I preached on vision.  Probably spoke more to people who know they need to chase what God is putting in their hearts to do.
  • Made this statement:  Dreamers dream with their eyes closed, visionaries look with eyes open to see a need to be met.
  • A vision always begins with a burden.  Otherwise its just a self-motivated dream.
  • I’m praying that God will turn our people’s passion into burdens that we can’t ignore.
  • Don’t spend your life without discovering what God wants to do through you or it will be a life filled with regret.
  • Preached from the Book of Esther.  Love the story in that book.
  • Didn’t share the happy ending in Esther in the first 2 experiences and my wife said I should.  I did in the 12pm.  They usually get the best message.
  • Talked with a bunch of first time guests that loved it!!  🙂
  • Talked with a Muslim leader who wanted me to condemn a church in Florida that is going to burn the Koran on 9/11.  While I don’t agree with that action, I will not get political or preach on what the Church should be AGAINST.  I have one focus – sharing Jesus.  That’s what I want to be known for.

Gearing up for FAQ.  We have some really tough hard hitting questions.  I can’t wait to celebrate 2 years in Lithopolis.  Bring as many people as you can that day.  I will be sharing the Gospel!

Also, don’t forget to join us on Sep. 8 from 12-1pm in the auditorium as we pray for the names of the people we are going to invite to church or share Christ with.

It was a great day.  I love my church.

  1. Good stuff. I hope you don’t mind that I “quote” you Pastor Tim. I loved the quote, “A vision always begins with a burden. Otherwise its just a self-motivated dream.”

    God Bless you in all of your endeavors for His Kingdom.
