Preparing for worship...
I love this team! Today, Jess led us in a wonderful discussion about prayer from our book study, we introduced a new outreach coordinator and a children's pastor candidate, learned about the upcoming kids Easter outreach, a youth mission trip, a women's retreat, and a lot more! #FirstFreeSTL
This explains the shock to my system when I walked outside this morning! Here for a conference and wow, it is cold with that wind!
I'll never understand why people do this.
Yesterday we wrapped up a series called And Rejoicing. We spent two months in the book of Philippians exploring how we can find joy in difficult circumstances. Worry is a joy thief and yesterday we talked about a biblical response to worry. I know there are a lot more anxious and worried people out there, so if that's you, watch the message Concerned and Rejoicing at efree.org/messages
What's better than church staff bowling night? Blacklight bowling! Except for all the people using it as an excuse for their scores. 🙄 😁
I am so thankful for our facilities staff and the many volunteers who are working on our campus every day. The painting, wood, and stone look great! More to come, but what an awesome job they have done already! Our video team is wasting no time using the new backdrops!
Bet you didn't expect a lesson on the time stone as part of the message today! Awesome illustration from Steve Otey! We have something better than the time stone. We have the end of the book that shows us exactly where we are going! #FirstFreeSTL
Love seeing all the young people in junior high ministry praising God and learning about him together.
