This was a beautiful Sunday at Cobblestone Community Church.
What a blessing it was for me personally to welcome to church this morning one of the families I met on yesterday's "flower seed giveaway" outreach.
God was in the house, again, working beautifully and mightily through our worship team, Under Cover! I LOVE hearing the church singing "My chains are gone, I've been set free!"
It's only the second day of our "Livin' Venti" message series--and FIRST in the book of Galatians, and I'm already totally stoked by the study of that New Testament book. We studied chapter 1, verses 1-10 this morning, and I can't wait for NEXT week!
What a sweet response from the church again during the prayer time following the message.
And what a thrill to dedicate three children in today's celebrations, Stefanie Munanu (in the 11:30 celebration), and then also Joshua Gibbons and my own granddaughter, Calleigh McCane, in the 10 a.m. celebration! I held it together pretty well, I thought; my voice only quivered slightly while praying for Calleigh!
After church, Aubrey and Kevin and Robin hosted an open house for Calleigh at home, and it was such a delight to share that time with family and friends. Thank you to all who joined in!
I have been praying for our mission team in Arequipa, Peru, to meet God in the city church this morning and the pueblo church this evening. I sure remember doing so, last year (especially in the singing of "Dios Manda La Lluvia"). Praying also for John and Andrew's speaking and sharing this week, along with their construction efforts.
