Hey, everyone! I wanted to make sure that everyone knows we'll be continuing our Sunday evening worship at 7pm this year. The time worked so well for the summer that our staff decided to keep it for this year.
That means that our Wellspring Sunday rehearsals will now be at 5pm (instead of 3:30), so you get your whole afternoon to rest and relax! Enjoy!
I have big news for the Sunday night crowd! For the summer, starting on June 17, we will be moving our evening service to 7pm! We as a staff are very excited for the change, and we hope that excitement will be contagious to you all. Each Sunday at 6:30, there will be food and fellowship in Ascension Hall, so invite folks to come early and have a good time!
As a band, that will change up our schedule a bit: we will meet at 5:15 to rehearse, run the service at 6:25, and grab some food at 6:35. It's going to be tight, but that is what we found that will work best with the youth summer schedule. So enjoy your afternoon nap!
Please tell your friends! We had a great crowd out for youth Sunday this past week, and it was just a foretaste of how alive and exciting (and full!) this service can be! I can't wait to see what God has in store for us this summer!
We've just started a new series on the Fruit of the Spirit. As a child, I still remember talking about this passage in VBS-- we even learned a song to memorize each fruit! As much as this passage has been ingrained in me throughout my life, I can't help but wonder: how much of these fruits shine through in my life? It's a tough question to answer, and I'm so excited to learn more about cultivating each of these throughout the coming weeks.
Perhaps take a moment to look through this verse and meditate on each fruit. which one thrives in you? Which is a struggle? Invite the Holy Spirit to fill you and nurture these fruits within you!
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law."
DON'T MISS THE GUNGOR SHOW!
Hey, guys! Don't forget, one of our favorite bands (the ones who wrote "Beautiful Things" and "We will Run to You") is coming to Cary this Monday!! You don't want to miss this. Mike and I have already gotten our ticktes, but you can get yours HERE. (It's open seating, so we can still go together!) Tickets are only $15. You all should definitely come!
The fullness of
Your glory has arrived
In your presence, God,
I'm completely satisfied
For You, I sing I dance
Rejoice in this divine romance
Lift my heart and my hands
to show my love
-Phil Wickham, "Divine Romance"
It's time to fully live into the ressurection, and yet I'm still learning what that means. When I hear this (gorgeous) song by Phil Wickham, I'm given a taste of the joy of the ressurection. How many times have I been less than satisfied with my life, despite God's presence? The fullness of God's glory has surely arrived, and I for one want to sing and dance and show my love to the Creator. Let us be more than mindful in these Easter weeks of the true miracle of our resurrected Savior!
Christ is risen!
He is risen, indeed!
