We set another 9:15 attendance record as well as the overall attendance record at United and for CFCOG in total.
Wasn’t sure how the different order for the Expereince today would affect things, but overall not too bad.
I think some of the late arrivers were surprised to walk in and I was already in the midst of my message.
the other thing we hadn’t considered was how hazy it would be for the end of my message. We we’re trying to coordinate for it to start kicking on right at about the time I started to pray, but it didn’t quite work that way.
At 9:15, I was surprised to all of the sudden be overtaken by a cloud…must have looked like the smoke monster on LOST.
Was totally impromptu to jump off the stage and finish in the crowd for both Experiences, but it was sort of fun and I don’t think I spit on too many people.
There was great participation during the music time…hopefully we can keep that kind of energy.
The worship team did a phenomial job as usual, but I know they were particually excited about today and they came through.
It’s quite a privilege to be able to work with so many talented people and together be seeing God do some amazing stuff all around us.
The guest reception was packed…I mean packed today with people…must have been at least 20 some at one point.
After that we had one of our Pastor’s Luncheon’s with some of the people that are newer to the church in the past month or two.
It’s great having an opportunity to talk with and hear the stories of how God is moving in people’s lives.
I’m more convinced than ever that God has a great plan for us and that we haven’t yet seen or Experienced all that He has in store for us.
Tonight we’re going up to Hershey for the hockey game…Andy has us in the luxury box, so even if the game turns out to be bad, who cares…lots of food and fun!
