#1 We had one person pray to receive Christ yesterday! Everything we do as a church is first to serve God, and second to see people get saved. AND we should celebrate like CRAZY when ONE person makes the decision to follow Christ!
#2 After the sermon we did a live Q&A session where you could ask anything about spiritual growth (i.e. Bible study, prayer, giving, etc.) Pastor Ryan Manes helped out after I made him grab a mic and join me on the stage. (He loves being put on the spot!) Quite a few questions came in and we did our best to answer them. I wasn't sure how it would all turn out since it was live and on the spot... but I absolutely LOVED it and plan on doing it again soon!
Why is this something to celebrate? I realized after reflecting on the day that people HAVE QUESTIONS. And it made me glad that we have a church where people feel their questions are listened to in a safe environment. I can't promise we'll have all the answers, but we'll do our best to listen, love, and lead.
Here were some of the questions that came in:
What a Great list of questions! There were a few I couldn't get to that I will answer in another blog post later this week.
#3 We started our corporate 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting yesterday! I am SO EXCITED about this time we are setting aside to draw close to God. I'm believing God for miracles, for greater impact in our city, for a permanent facility, and for the un-churched and de-churched to find a home at Access. What are you asking and believing God for?
