Sunday was a very special time at LifePointe Church. There was a lot going on, and it was all good. I’d have to say Sunday’s service was one of the most holy times we’ve ever had in our short existence.
We had baptism, the third time this year. With four baptized, that makes ten in 2010, and fourteen since Thanksgiving. There was a mom and son baptized, along with a father and step-daughter. It’s always moving to baptize multiple members of a family at the same time. And God is definitely working in the two families. We are seeing a great movement of the Spirit in many of our families. Very exciting times.
Two of our teenagers joined the band for a couple of songs. Heather and Hanna did an outstanding job. A few weeks ago our band became all LifePointe people. They haven’t missed a step. Bob, James, and Drew are doing a fantastic job. The entire worship set was perfect Sunday.
We celebrated communion Sunday, as well. Communion is always a special time but Sunday’s celebration was especially meaningful. We used two chalices and big loaves for communion. Our people can forward, in silence, to receive the elements. It was a wonderful experience.
After the service, I went to pick up my wife from her Walk to Emmaus. She had the time of her life. She’s on fire and ready! Again, if you ever have an opportunity to attend a Walk to Emmaus, take it.
After staying on the go for two or three weeks, I finally crashed Monday night. I went to sleep about 6pm and slept until 7:30am Tuesday morning. I needed it. Now I’m looking forward to a special time with my Wednesday morning men’s group. God is working in this group and I expect tomorrow to be a step up for everyone.
So far, this summer has been exceptional. I thank God for all He’s doing in and around me.
