First, I must say that I love the new stage.  I am so proud of our team getting it together and only slightly over budget.  However, it was so different that it will take a while to get used to.  I guess that is what change is all about.  As I was speaking yesterday, it felt as if we were in a completely different room.  I am so proud of all the Saturday folks and many of the 11am folks moving to the 9am service. It created growth room in the 11am seats.  We had mixed crowds (people sitting in strange seats). A shuffling of the deck, a mix-up, tossing of the salad.  However you want to express it… that is what we were wanting and I think it is what we are getting.

The Summer on the Mount series has everyone talking.  From what I hear, people really like the verse by verse teaching.  The message of Jesus is unbelievably simple and applicable. We are getting reports from all over the church of healings and fillings!  Last night, Rudy Rodriguez had 60 attend his first session on Spiritual Warfare!  I am really looking forward to my class on Thursday (6/11) on “How to Study the Bible” and unleashing people to thoroughly get into the Word.

OK, here is a new level that I thought I would never endorse: for all of you that use Facebook and Twitter from your cell phone.  While you are in service, take a picture and immediately post to Facebook and/or Twitter.  Use a caption like: ‘join me now LIVE online at‘.  Take the picture while we are in worship and standing up (so it doesn’t cause a disturbance).  I have done that the last few weeks and I have had several of my friends watch us online.  Let’s reach the lost in the new world of internet evangelism!  Below is my sample pic from this week.  We could reach thousands each week with this technique.

  1. Wow, I just realized that this is my 400th post! Thanks for being along on the journey.

    Yesterday was our church’s 6th birthday! Happy Birthday to you!

  2. We had our first Tuesday Night Intercessory Prayer Meeting. We saw at least one new face. This is a season of Kingdom Investing. There are at least 15 more people who are called to PRAY for our church on Tuesday nights. Our objective is to pray for Promiseland, however, God always blesses those who attend. We would love to have you.

  3. Great News, Casey. Thank you for standing in the gap!
