I attended both Nashville and Dickson today. I love it when I get to do a little campus hopping. As I bounced between both campuses I couldn’t help but be amazed by our team!
Each week all of our staff work tirelessly to create environments for people to engage in worship. Oftentimes their efforts go unacknowledged, so here’s a quick glimpse of what everyone was up to today:
Butch – helped direct all campus efforts at Dickson so that Chad could enjoy a weekend away
Leslie – expanded the Kidz World classrooms today at Dickson because of increased attendance
Tom – helped out at the Dickson campus as worship assistant
Jarrod – led a fabulous worship set in Nashville
Dave, Matt & Miranda – took care of service details in Nashville
Ashley – worked with her First Impressions team to welcome everyone and provide some hot coffee on this cool spring day
Ryan – led his parking team to facilitate traffic and also shared Servolution details with community group leaders
Ricky – hosted a gathering for community group leaders to encourage and thank them for their leadership
Pat & Eve – created an incredible KidStuff service where they shared the plan of salvation and equipped parents to continue the conversation at home
Wendy – kept things running smoothly in Kidz World
George – served as the Nashville worship assistant
Anne – assisted Pete and answered questions in the lobby
Blake – is helping George host our event this evening “Remedy for this Heart”
And of course Pete delivered a great message in Nashville to wrap up the Back Seat Jesus series entitled “Pray Continuously”. The bottom line: We stink at praying because we want control. Prayer is a pride vs. humility issue.
- Why Don’t You Pray? Because you live under a prideful illusion that you’re in control.
- How Do You Pray? Prayer isn’t an action – it’s an attitude.
Scripture to check out:
- Matthew 16:24-25
- Luke 18:1-8
- I Thessalonians 5:17
- John 15:4-5
Today I was reminded of how blessed I am to be a part of what God is doing at Cross Point. I pray that I never take it for granted or try to control it!
