LC #5 and fun with many friends

Today was filled with spending time with a wide variety of friends both old and new.
Starting this morning with the August Leadership Community, we had a "Concert of Prayer". Using our four core values CELEBRATE - GROW - SERVE - MULTIPLY, we had popcorn prayers, prayed in groups of 2 or 3 and prayed silently. I spoke to the group using Galatians 6:9,10 encouraging them not to grow weary in the good they have done over our first six months of services and to trust in Christ for the strength in the next six months.
After LC our family headed to the pool and met up with two other families. That was relaxing and fun for all of us.
Then we went to a friends annual "BBQ & Kickball" evening where we reconnected with a few dozen friends from our mother church.
Lastly, on the way home we dropped by a home having a teen party. It was fun crashing the group.
I've had the last two weeks off from preaching with Jeff Persall and Mike McCaman filling for me. I look forward to getting in front of our people and continuing in our Philippians series titled: Renegade Joy.

Sounds as though you had a great day. That's what I am working towards myself.
