Should Christians Engage Culture? That was our topic for week #2 of the Q series & based on the reaction, it was something many people enjoyed hearing, thinking and discussing.
Perception isn’t always reality. I believe Jesus engaged His culture & I believe He wants those who claim to follow Him to do the same. My perceptions was that my view on this topic would elicit some negative reactions but in reality, I think many of our people found the topic refreshing and thought provoking. I like it when I’m wrong about stuff like that.
The band is one a whole notha level right now! Watching these guys grow & mature as a band & watching our Arts Coordinator, Josh Strange, lead that process has been incredible to watch! Week after week they are leading us into the presence of God with humility & authenticity & taking all of us to new heights.

I’ve finally stopped wondering on Saturday night if anybody will show up on Sunday morning. It used to be a real fear of mine but over time that fear has faded. Sunday, we had numerous regulars out due to Mothers Day & we still had a nice crowd. Lately, my mindset has shifted from wondering if we will ever fill all the seats to when we will fill all the seats.
