Weekend In Review....a day late...

It was a great weekend at New Life.  Stacy taught in the Awaken services and did a fantastic job.  We knew we couldn't go through this series on relationships and sex without hearing a female perspective.  Worship rocked the house both services, we had a rare 10 out of 10 winner for our opening game, and if the three second service attendees who came to first service this weekend would've come to second service, we would've been out of chairs.  What a great problem to have! 

As for Life Groups, it was a great turnout despite the impending supposedly bad weather.  Enjoyed our group time and then enjoyed watching some football and snacking on soft pretzels.  It's crazy to have that many teens in our house every week, but it is so much fun and such a blessing to us. 

Today I'm releasing the first teen ministry newsletter, The Update.  And I know it seems like an old skool thing to do, but I think it's going to be a good communication tool because I'm going to make it available in several different ways.  There will be hard copies available at the church, but it will also be available through our website, teen facebook page, church facebook page, and I'll probably even link to it from this blog.  Improved communication is never a bad thing.

This Sunday is Youth Sunday and I couldn't be more proud to say that we are rockin' two bands for the two services.  The first service Awaken Band is ready and will be leading the worship first service while the second service Awaken Band leads in second service.  I hope our adults are ready to rock for Jesus.  I've also had a sneak preview of Tyler's message for us and am very excited to hear what he was to share.
