Good Week

Sometimes I don't feel like I do that much good at church. I know I probably do, but I don't always see real fruit up-close and personal. This week was different.

I've been leading out on making our hospitality better on Sunday mornings before worship. I've got different LifeGroups each week bringing juice and snacks. A couple of people man the food table while others act as greeters in the atrium.

Last Sunday I was out there in the atrium with the LifeGroup doing this. I met a middle aged couple who were just coming back to church for the first time since childhood. We had a good conversation. I told them about some LifeGroups. I followed up with them later in the week. They said they were planning to come back this Sunday. They showed up today and I was able to introduce them to another LifeGroup leader and they exchanged contact info. Maybe this couple will stick and see their lives transformed as they are in community with our church body.

Today our greeters introduced me to a lady with her two children. They had just moved here from the mid-west. It was a great pleasure to show her around as we dropped her 10th grader off with our great youth guys and as we dropped her kindergarten child off with my wife for a great program up in Adventure Street. I'll follow up this week with two contacts for getting in a LifeGroup.

We started our new LifeGroup on Thursday night. It was cool to have our neighbor come and her daughter to do childcare for us. Had good fellowship and good chips, salsa and ice cream! I pray that this group takes off and that all of our lives are transformed through it.

Just excited to be making a small difference in some lives...

I'm always thankful for those glimpes of eternity that remind you what it's about.
