Turkey Day Give Away

I just have to say what an awesome group of volunteers we have at JCFC. From Jed Speras leading the whole deal, to Vaughn Van DeBoe organizing all 70 addresses into drive-able routes, to everyone that delivered and filled and carried boxes, you guys all rock.

We had hoped to be able to give away 50 boxes, but JCFC you guys far out did yourselves again. 70 families recieved boxes today with a complete Thanksgiving Day meal.

I am in awe of what God can do when people follow the leading of Christ and BE the church.

I finally did it. Im on facebook.

Turkey day giveaway

Just wanted to say how thrilled I am at everyone serving on this Turkey Day GiveAway plan. Our goal was to raise enough money and food to give out 50 complete meals tomorrow.

Not only did JCFC raise enough for 50, we raised enough funds for 65 baskets! Awesome.

As we were collecting names though in our city of people who really need help, we came up with about 68 names.

So we are just abit short.

You can go here and donate 37 per basket is you are feeling that love do so.

Everyone is welcome to come and serve with us tomorrow at the church office at 10 AM. Its going to be a great morning!

Christmas Presents

We have an awesome surpise for our kids this year. A new puppy. They are going to freak. So no one breathe a word about it please.

But Colin has been asking a thousand questions about the present. He keeps grilling me about what it could be.

Finally I told Colin, listen I cant tell you, but its something you are going to have so much fun with, you will love it. Its completely awesome.

He cocked his head at me and said, "Dad, is it another one of me?"

too funny

Ruth Harbor Banquet

I was able to attend the Ruth Harbor Banquet last night. What an awesome night as Jessica Dunker told the story to about 400 people about how God drew her and two of her close friends to start this ministry. It was an amazing night as I saw God doing things in other lives, confirming in them their call to serve.

I am so excited about our church and direction God has blessed us with. I am truly humbled to see God stirring hearts, and our church becoming a church consumed with others.

Building Relationships, Encountering God, Serving Others

Driscolls Porn Book

Here is a link for a great e-book dealing with the damaging issue/addiction to porn.

Its such a devastating problem that is rampant with men all over the world.

Just a word of advice, Driscoll is very frank. Not a casual read, but if you know someone who is dealing with porn, or you are, read it today.

Im so glad this is done.

As always we should pray for our elected officials. I believe that God is 100% in control. That statement would be made about whoever won last night. No matter what your opinion of President Elect Obama or Senator McCain.

I wasnt really hurraying for any of the candidates, now they can just move forward with something productive.

-like getting the finances of our country figured out!
