4th of July weekend for churches is hold your breath time and hope people show up…unfortunately…however we are very happy to report that we had a great start to July. 4th of July weekend was a win!! We finished up our mini-series called “Wasting Time with God.” Wesley Van Fleet did a great job of sharing his testimony and talking about how he puts God first by wasting time with Him.
What a great day. We were thrilled to see so many people at Seven SD. It is so strange in a new area of ministry to try to gauge the patterns, mainly because there are no patterns in a new church. So, when so many people showed up today, on a day that “normally” would be a low attendance day we couldn’t help but get a little giddy. We’re not fooling ourselves, there is much work to be done, we’ve far from “arrived.” There is so much I want to do and often I feel far behind where I want to be. But, it is encouraging to know we’re on the right track. I have been praying Matthew 9:37-38, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few, ask the Lord of the harvest to send the workers.” There are so many areas in our ministry where I can see God bringing someone to fill the void. We’re getting there, we’ve got a long ways to go, but today was one of those “wins”. New churches need wins, especially when there seems to be so many tough days.
