Yesterday was AWESOME! Seriously, I can’t think of much better than celebrating an empty tomb and a resurrected Christ. What’s more is that I can hardly imagine experiencing this celebration any other place than with Illumination Church.
Here are some of my reflections from yesterday:
- The tomb is EMPTY!
- Jesus is ALIVE!!
- In Him we, too, are made ALIVE!!!
- 7 people responded to the gospel and gave their lives to Jesus!
- 9 people in all responded to commit or recommit their lives to Christ!\
- I’m totally excited about our new, now current series, “The Power of One”
- One choice can change everything! (from yesterday’s message)
- We moved to 2 services: 9 & 10:45
- The band was phenomenal in leading the church to a place of reflection and worship. Never hurts to kick things off with a little Journey, “Don’t Stop Believing”.
- IC has the most incredible volunteers and leaders!
- I’m reminded once again that one of the things that sets IC apart is the people; an amazing community that takes doing life and ministry together to a whole new level.
- Healing. For many, yesterday was a day of healing in many ways.
Here are a few of the things that I’m looking forward to as a church this week:
- The message this weekend, “The Power of One Step!”
- IGNITE kicks off on Sunday night (a practical and hands on look at the Bible) – Sunday night from 6 to 7:30 @ our IC Cafe
- Connecting with and getting to know some of the many new faces and families here at IC.
- Continuing to connect with the community around our new campus in Burnsville
I’m praying that the presence of the Holy Spirit and the power of God in our lives will be evident this week both in word and deed, that people might see Christ in and through us as individuals and as a church.
Until all hear,
