Sunday Night Rejoicings

So thankful this evening for a glorious day spent in the worship of God and the fellowship of his saints!

Our worship bands at Cobblestone, Under Cover and Con Brio, never cease to amaze me. This morning, Under Cover debuted their rendition of the following Mercy Me song, and oh, what a marvelous prayer and perfect segue to the message of the morning:

We completed our "How to Survive the End of the World" series, through the entire book of Revelation in eleven weeks....and it is one of my (perhaps THE) favorite series we've ever taught at Cobblestone. I'ma hate to see it go!

So much going on these days. So much good stuff. We received a week or two ago a report from our "Advent Conspiracy" effort, that the eight fresh-water wells we sponsored in Burma are complete! A display in the atrium at The Loft shows photos of each well and maps of its location, and information about the villages we helped to bless! What a huge blessing, to know more than 2,000 people in Burma now have fresh, clean water because of God's people in Oxford, Ohio!

Our mission team to Peru leaves on Thursday. Praying that Sam's passport comes in time (please, Lord!).

Cobblestone's website now features an online giving function! That's something I've prayed and hoped for for a long time now, and it's now a reality. I pray that easier giving will translate into more faithful, more God-honoring giving to the church.

I was so honored (as always) to participate briefly this morning in the outreach committee's meeting this morning as they made plans for our next series, starting next Sunday, "1Thing Matters." It's gonna be awesome. Just two weeks, but hang on tight, it's gonna be something special.

Answered prayer report: Many of us in the church have been praying for Treena, who had cancer surgery not long ago and then had the medication after the surgery threaten the health of a cornea....and she reports today that her vision is fully restored! Praise God for faithful prayer and for answered prayer for this precious servant.

Tonight's "The Third" at The Loft was beautiful. The crowd is growing, bus service (from Shriver) starts next week, and the "hard launch" will be September 19. Great job tonight Con Brio. Keep it up, Andrew! So proud of the whole "Third" team.
