This Sunday at actionchurch was jam packed with creamy goodness. Great Band…talk about the end of the world…a big announcement that I totally bungled, plus so much more.
This week we ended the 7>1 series by discussing how most people come to church at some level to be “ready to meet Jesus”. Whether Jesus comes back to “rapture” us next Tuesday or in 10,000 years we will still ALL meet him so we need to be ready. The big question of the day was “is going to church enough to “impress” God”. This scripture from the prophet Amos (who turns out not be THE Famous Amos) seems to say God IS NOT impressed by religious ceremony,gathering, giving, or singing. So why should we still gather together on Sunday morning?
24 Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. 25 And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near. Hebrews 10:24-25 NLT
The reason we meet together as a church is not to somehow “impress God”. We meet together to help motivate and encourage each other to lives filled with acts of love and Good works…not one day a week…everyday. Seven is greater than one!
Wow…so Photoside Cafe turned out to be the “real deal”. Really talented guys with really great attitudes. I genuinely hope we see these guys again as they tour. Loved having a violin on stage at actionchurch…the sound was incredible.
Garret has lots ore pics here if you want to check out the day.
I got long winded (talking about the “end of the world” takes time) and didn’t fully lay out what has transpired with our deal with Club 19. . I forgot to mention one of the most amazing parts. I’m going to give details in a separate blog post so I don’t make that mistake again.
Where can one purchase an “end times helmet”?
Thanks Steve Grow for the amazing cog-o-lantern art. You can check it out on the flickr site…and I’ll be putting it up on the blog later this week.
Yes, I used the words “drunk cheerleader, keg party, and Bong” in the same sentence while talking about the rapture…
We are 2-3 weeks away from solving our problem of not having a quiet place for little ones and moms…yep…Thank you God!
It’s hard to describe…hard to recap in words but the energy and “vibe” was just great this week. Great Crowd. I think we are just beginning to see what our little “church for misfit toys” can become. God is on the case.
The kidz area was PACKED with lots of kids in costumes. The actionkidz crew do so much with so little. I am so pumped as I imaging what they can do as we give them even more space and resources. You guys are the best part of actionchurch. My daughter wakes up on SATURDAY morning saying “I can’t wait til it’s Sunday”. Thank you all.
Thanks to all of the great actionchurch crew. Dave, because you were traveling we moved the chairs and tables at least 32 times until Garrett finally took over :-) Everyone has their specialty!
BIG announcement next week about something that we are going to do to meet a need in our community as a church. It’s WAY bigger than I thought…but I can’t imagine turning our back on such a basic and heartbreaking reality in our city.
