I'm pumped for this weekend's worship service at Church Requel. Now I admit that I'm an enthusiastic kind of guy and you expect me to say, "I'm pumped." But you will NOT want to miss this weekend. I've spent all morning going over our plans for Sunday night at 6pm and I've been laughing and crying and joyful and singing and excited and... yeah, pumped!
What's so great about this Sunday, you ask?
Glad you asked! (Ha!) Let me give you a few "pumped up" items! First, when we walk in the door, we get to see pictures of the CR guys having fun last weekend at Progressive Field (the Indians are done for the season, but the memories live on!) Then we get to watch a brand new welcome video by the creative geniuses at Steelehouse Media.
The worship and praise music this weekend are off the charts with "Counting on God" by Desperation Band (I love this song!!!), along with "For All You've Done" and "Came to My Rescue" by Hillsong.
We'll greet one another to the tune of the oldie but goody "We Are Family" by Sister Sledge. (Come on. Live a little. One time! We've never played it before and we'll probably not do it again... but it's a party this weekend at CR!)
Steve will tell us about all the great things happening at CR. He's also going to share a little bit about his own use of the YouVersion app for his daily Bible reading. And we'll watch a really cool short video called "Whispers" where we hear the whispers of hundreds of people reading the Bible. Eerily awesome!
And we're going to have a helpful and practical teaching about temptations. Football players don't want to fumble the ball in football. And we especially don't want to fumble the ball with our Christian faith. By the way, the sermon opens up with another "Football Advice From Your Pastor" video segment. (Click here for a sneak peak!)
Have I mentioned how pumped I am about this weekend at Church Requel? Can't wait to see you there!
