I know it doesn't sound very manly but I am so EXCITED and PUMPED for what I see in our NEAR FUTURE. We have had the GREATEST SUMMER in our 14 year history, we have seen DOZENS OF SOULS SAVED, RECORD ATTENDANCES, we will BAPTIZE OVER 100 PEOPLE this summer (Beach Bash 3 Churches), and our giving has been solid. TO GOD BE THE GLORY. What i just described was our SUMMER AT GRANITE, not the year, the last couple of months.
CAN YOU IMAGINE how amazing the fall is going to be?! This is why I have butterflies in my stomach, I love being a part of what God is doing, and GREATER THINGS ARE YET TO COME. I love our church, I love our churches spirit, attitude, sacrifice, love for each other, and our churches LOVE FOR THE LORD. I love our leadership team, thier commitment to honoring Jesus and each other, winning souls, sacrificially giving, and not being afraid to TO LIVE OUT EPH. 3:20. I love our volunteers, there are hundreds who have stepped up and not out, they show up rain or shine, they EXTEND, EXPRESS, AND REFLECT JESUS in amazing ways to our church and our guests. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE doing ministry with so many AMAZING PEOPLE!
I get butterflies in my stomach when I think about the LAUNCHING OF OUR HAVERHILL CAMPUS! Almost 60 leaders have committed to going, to bring Jesus to HAVERHILL! Dozens more will jon them to make room for more people in SALEM, AND TO BRING HUNDREDS MORE TO JESUS IN HAVERHILL. I am so glad we have a church willing to BE LIKE JESUS, and unwilling to sit on their butts "getting fed" whatever that means, lol.
Anyway its been a while since I BLOGGED so I thought I would share what I was sitting here thinking about, BUTTERFLIES, lol.
