Its been a very busy weekend and week.  I had meetings Friday night and all day Saturday.  Sunday was our Summer Missions Celebration.  It was a great worship service and the personal stories were wonderful. Sunday night was our first Chi Alpha (youth worship gathering) of the school year. Monday night was our Deacon/Spouse banquet and tonight was NCD meeting and the first C-Group at my house.  C-Groups are our high school Bible studies and I lead one in my home. Needless to say, even though it is Tuesday night, I feel like it should be the end of the week. But no complaints.  The weather is beautiful and I’m enjoying my work with youth and missions. It is a good busy.

Since the summer departure of our Pastor of Missions and Evangelism, I’ve been working with missions at our church which I truly enjoy.  My interest in becoming a more externally focused and missional church has been growing in recent years and this seems a natural outlet for these ideas and interests that I believe God has been nurturing in me.  Our Missions Committee is in the process of developing a strategic plan to not only guide our giving but also unite our church as a family in partnership with mission opportunities – in our community and around the world.  It is a challenging but needed journey.  I have this amazing vision of First Baptist Church fully embracing our call to be a city set on a hill in our community. It is a beautiful picture. What an amazing legacy to pass along to generations that follow.  First Baptist – the church that cares. First Baptist – the church that serves.  First Baptist – the church that loves.
