Shine Like Stars has been a fun, festive series & honestly, I’ll be sad to see it end in a couple of weeks. Here’s a rundown from last weekend.
A loving church is a serving church. I really don’t know that it’s possible to have one without the other. If you truly love people then you’ll serve them & if you truly serve people you can’t help but love them. There have been a few instances over the past couple weeks that have really stood out to me & made me realize that these two things go together like a hand in a glove.
Sometimes, cheesy works. The 3 main points of my sermon Sunday were about as cheesy as they come but I don’t know that I’ve ever gotten more compliments on the points of a message. They might have been cheesy but they were memorable so it worked.
Not yo momma’s Christmas songs! Josh & the CP band have done some amazing renditions of classic Christmas carols during the course of this series & this weeks version of O Come Let Us Adore Him might have been my favorite yet. The arrangement of the rendition was also totally original. Wow those guys are good!
Coffee enhances conversation. We’ve been giving out free coffee since day one at CP & it’s not just to provide a hot drink. Coffee truly does create conversation & community at CP & that’s been even more apparent as the temps have dropped outside. People are hanging out, chatting about life & warming-up over a hot cup of Pura Vida. I love it!
Can’t wait for our Christmas Eve Service. We only have 150 tickets & Sunday was the first week we took requests & passed them out. After week #1, they’re over half gone & that gets me excited! They say Christmas Eve is the #1 time for families to attend church together & that’s why we’re doing this.
