Lots going on

It's been a whirlwind around here since Easter. And speaking of Easter, we had an amazing day at all 3 of our campuses. Over 2,600 people in attendance and best of all, 71 people indicated that they had become Christ-followers!

This past Sunday I was honored to participate in the dedication service of one of the 2 homes that Foothills Community Church is sponsoring for Habitat For Humanity. This is part of our Project Reach initiative, so thank you to all who participated!

In other Project Reach news, our team of 15 people got back from Haiti on Saturday. I have already heard some of the amazing stories of what the Lord did there. Don't forget, in addition to another Haiti trip, we also have opportunities in Harlan County, KY and this year we will also send a team to Africa to help build water wells.

There are a few more things I want to remind you about:

* This Sunday at all 3 campuses we will be having our Get In The Game session. It will be held immediately after the 11:15 service in Seneca, and after the services in both Toccoa and Hartwell.
We will provide you and your family with free lunch and will be providing childcare. For those who may not know what Get In the game is, it's a class to help you know more about Foothills Community Church You will hear a little about where we've been and where we're headed and you will hear about how to get connected at F.C.C. 

* On April 21st we will also be celebrating our 15th anniversary as a church. We will have our regularly scheduled morning services, but at 6:00pm all 3 of our campuses will come together in Seneca to party! We will have all 3 worship leaders and musicians from the campuses leading in a huge worship night. We will celebrate new life through baptism and also observe the lord's Supper together. There will also be a look back at God's faithfulness for the last 15 years and then we'll look forward to our next steps as a church. I will also be announcing when and where our 4th campus will begin. Please do not miss this historic event in the life of our church.

* Don't forget about our Axis student camp this summer. This will be an incredible experience for our teenagers as they descend upon Myrtle Beach SC for 5 days of fun, teaching and worship. For more info, check out our Student Ministry web page. I'm really looking forward to this because It looks like I will be able to be there for a couple of days!

* I am really excited about this Sunday at Foothills Community Church. e will be continuing our series in John called, the Man Behind the Message. If you want to get a head start read John 6:68-7:53. See you then!
