Hey Folks…just some really quick pieces of good news that we received half way through a Monday…
i.We think we have the go-ahead on a really cool way to do Christmas Eve service together. Stay tuned. We hope to have something to announce shortly. We’ve been working on this for a month, and a few more things have to fall into place, but if it all works out, I can promise you that you’ve never had a Christmas like this before!
ii. There were 158 kids out yesterday at Connexus. That rocks. You know how much kids matter to God and to us. That was quite a bit higher than we expected for soft launch, and no service was overcrowded, because we have four services on two campuses. So there’s plenty of room for growth. All in all, the more kids, the better. Bring ’em on!
iii. You are generous, again! Our offering yesterday was $69,000. Over $55,000 in over-and-above giving was received toward our $800,000 goal ($600K + $200K), plus almost $14,000 in general offering. We appreciate your quick and generous response. We want every family to participate in the founding of Connexus in some meaningful financial way. If you haven’t made a commitment to an over-and-above gift yet, please do so this week and bring it with you this weekend. I think you’ll find long-term that you won’t want to miss out on the blessings that come from generosity toward God and others.
Looking forward to all that’s ahead.
