What a phenomenal Labor Day weekend. I love what God is doing at Foothills right now. There is a real sense of anticipation. Week after week people are making decisions to follow Jesus---that's what it's all about!
** I didn't preach Sunday, so I got to see things from a different perspective. That's a great thing to do now and then. By the way, my goal is to preach around 40 Sundays a year, that way I can stay creative, and work ahead, and it also allows the congregation to hear from other communicators---that's healthy!
** Brian Rhodes delivered the message this past Sunday and did an excellent job! We had a power surge which knocked the power out for a second, which means the microphone, lights, and screens went out, then had to reset. It happened just as Brian stepped on the platform at the 9:30am service. He handled himself like a pro, and kept on trucking! Nice job Brian.
** Eric Peters and team led worship. It was awesome! It sounded like people were really singing loud.
** The Questions Uncensored series is almost done. I wll be answering questions about gambling, birth control, and cremation this Sunday. You do not want to miss it.
** Don't forget to sign-up for a LIFE group! You will be glad that you did.
** We had a big baptism party on Sunday afternoon. It was so much fun to meet so many people. I can't believe how smooth things ran. Thanks to all of our staff and volunteers that made the day a huge success. We WILL do that again
** By the way, the best part about the party was that 31 more people were baptized in Lake Keowee! We have baptized over 130 people so far this year. Our next baptism is scheduled for December 5th!
** I love that College football is here again!
** Got a chance to go dove hunting on Saturday. That was a blast. I even managed to shoot a few!
** If you have volunteered at Foothills during the last year, please make sure to attend our Dream Team Celebration coming up on September 30th. This is a chance for our staff to serve YOU, and to thank you for making Foothills such a wonderful place. Why don't you sign-up now?
