This last week has been one of the busiest and most rewarding weeks of my life. We started last Monday with Trunk or Treat…and again it was amazing. There were thousands that showed up and we were ready for every single one of them. North Shore has an amazing group of volunteers.
Then Saturday we had a Pulse work day…there were a lot of mixed emotions as we were cleaning out that building. I remember all of the hard work that it took to get that place ready. I remember all of the youth whose lives where changed for all of eternity in that place. And I remember seeing God move in some very real and amazing ways. It was a little bitter sweet. It is hard to let something so amazing go…but it is good to know that God is still in control and is going to take our youth to a level that we never knew was possible. I believe that the best days are right around the corner for North Shore’s youth ministry. Also…our church blew me away again at the amount of people who showed up to help us with this huge task.
And the best part of the week was Sunday morning. God did some amazing things. I had the opportunity to baptize 6 people during worship. It never gets old seeing people publicly identify with Christ. Then I shared a message titled PDA, on a fun and interesting side note, all our married couples spent a little time “making out” during our service. We talked about how baptism was our Public Display of Affection toward Christ…and during the altar call 4 more people came forward and asked to be baptized right there on the spot.
God is so good…I can’t wait to see what He has in store for us.
