C3 conference

I am headed to Dallas this week to hang out with Ed Young at the C3 conference. Well not actually Ed, this year, but I will see him anyway.

So my posts will be randomly dispersed between driving and listening. We are driving to Dallas because we are taking 6 total from our team. I am super excited to be going with such a great group of people who really want to change out city!

I am blessed to be surrounded by such a creative and hard working team.

Daniel Fast

Here is a link to the paperwork we passed out today in service. It has some guidelines and multiple recipes.

I challenge everyone to take a look at what we are doing, listen to this week and last weeks sermon and join us as we fast. Go to sidebar and subscribe through Itunes!

Be journaling, reading your Bible and praying during the next few weeks, as we discipline ourself to do what we ought, so later we can do what we want.

Volunteer Video

This is a video my friend Rob Ketterling from River Valley Church. It is such a great piece. I love creativity.

Wednesday Thoughts

Well it is Wednesday again, and the good ole middle of the week.

We have had a crazy one at that. Tuesday was a great day of meetings. I try to stack most all the meetings I can in one day. It helps to be in meeting mode.

We are in week 2 of Dave Ramseys Financial Peace. It is awesome, but trying to get out of debt seems to create all kinds of other scenarios. My truck broke down. I love a diesel, but I sure dont a whole lot about them. I did get the truck up and running this afternoon!

Drake Bulldogs finally lost. What a great run though! We are so proud of them.

My kids are taking swimming lessons and it is hilarious.

Gearing up for this fast starting this weekend. 21 days to change our church family. I cant wait, and I am getting the meat in this week! Daniel Fast here we come.

I challenge everyone to pick up a prayer journal to log what God is doing in your heart.

Lisa Little

Just wanted to again say how pumped I am about Lisa Little taking on our younger kids (3-K) at creek kids.

She is rocking it. I have been cruising around the blog world at church, and she is getting rave reviews!

You can check her blog out here and dont forget to come to the Creek Kids Meeting tonight at 7 at the Christ Life Office.

Way to go Lisa!

Weekend Update and More

~Today's service was great! Worship transition between songs was better than ever. Sermon was very direct about fasting and spiritual growth, but had a wonderful response. Next Sunday we begin a 21 day Daniel Fast. It is going to be a turning point in the Life of JCFC. You wont want to miss one sermon in this series.

~If you missed it today, then download the podcast here.

~Dara and I have committed to get out of debt before the end of the year. God has supernaturally made a way were it didnt seem possible. It is amazing what God can and will do if you align yourself with His Word.

~I have been training like crazy to compete in a Triathlon this year in June. I am in better shape than I have been in years. Loving my time at the gym. It just allows me to decompress and relax, as I push my body further than I have in long time.

~Colin is at a stage where he is just hilarious. We have story after story, about him right now. From eating food off the floor to picking up the scent block in a urinal, to being totally smitten with adult women to the point he is showing off to them with whatever he can think of to impress them. Tonight he told Megan, Rachel Crouse's room mate that (in his man voice) "Hey Megan, my dad has a black grille"

~Creek Kids 2008 Meeting is this Tuesday from 7-8.30 at the Christlife Office. You wont want to miss it!

~Lisa Little is Rocking the new Creek Kids Early Ed group. The kids love her, the parents love her, and it is great. Bring your 3-K kids this week.

~Great videos the past two weeks. Should get them up on the blog tomorrow and on Youtube. You'll crack up.

Snow, Snow, Snow

We are buried in Snow here in the metro. I am not a fan of winter at all, but I must say the snow is beautiful. (I have had plenty so far this year though.)

Just so everyone knows, it is supposed to snow and be cold this weekend again! But never fear we will be having service. If by some starnge reason it is absolutely too dangerous to be out on Sunday, check your local news stations Sunday morning.

We need to have church this weekend though! we kick off a new series about fasting, Larger than Life. If you want to live according to God's plan, and be blessed more than you ever thought imaginable, you won't want to miss a second of this series.

Invite a friend to service this weekend!

Well Giants took in the last few moments. I guess they worked hard, but I was hoping for the Patriots.

Does anyone know if this is the first time quarterback brothers have won the Super Bowl? I am sure back to back...

Oh well
