It has been a busy Summer at Faithco. I can’t believe Summer is almost over. Here are some of the happenings here at FCO for the past week:
1. Pulse Youth ministry has a new worship band. The prospects of the the up and coming singers and musicians are exciting. I’m glad to help with the training. Also Vanz (my daughter) spoke in the last Pulse gathering; I was proud.
2. The iServe series has got a lot of people stepping forward to be counted on for His service. I believe iServe was one of the most powerful message series we’ve ever taught at FCO, and we are already seeing results. The series may be over but the ripple effect continues.
3. We dedicated 8 babies yesterday! WOW! Dedication of babies simply means as parents, we are committing to raise our children to live for God. So many new babies; I’m glad we are on our way to building a new campus –we are out of space in every kids area.
This Wednesday we kick off our quarterly Newcomers’/Discovery Series. If you know someone who wants to get to know more about our church, invite them and/or come with them. It’s a great learning environment with food and childcare. This series ends with Baptism and Communion. Don’t miss these intimate times of celebration and worship. I believe we get so many complements on these two worship gatherings because this is one of the few “small church” things we still do. I can’t really explain it, one has to experience it to get what happens at Baptism and Communion gatherings.
September 11-12 the Power Team (the guys that break and bend things) will be ministering at our church. Big event.
Next FRIENDS of Summer will be September 18 –I think it is the Olympics theme.
FRIENDS ministry new season starts at the end of Summer, or at the beginning of October.
New Sermon Series in 2 weeks –It’s called: Intervention – -You like it? Basically, it is about bible characters who’s destructive paths were interrupted by a God sent person (I hope that makes sense).
