Sunday afternoon musings

One of the benefits of having your dad visit for the weekend is that you have a Sunday roast waiting for you when you get home. After being at church for over 6 hours and 3 services you are not usually in the mood for cooking so it made a great change.

I have not got all the numbers through yet but I think we had 755 people attend church and kids church today. The most we have ever had outside Christmas.

David did a great job today creating some background videos of our church building history and scenes from MK.

We had some difficulties with the balance of the sound today which resulted in the overall noise level being to high. (We have some ideas to sort that out) That said the musicians put together a great arrangement of songs which really communicated the overall message of "Focusing on our mission - our city".

We sang Blutree song Standing out - brilliant. We also sang a Hillsong piece. Can't remember the title at the moment (Just been reminded: The Time has come) but one line has stuck with me since it talks about being caught in God's mercy fallout! - Incredible thought.

But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions–it is by grace you have been saved. Eph 2 v 4

We baptised 6 people today - that never gets old!

When I left John was just starting a Dedication service for families with new babies and then Base (Young people) will hit the centre. All great stuff.

On days like today I find it hard to believe I get to do this for a living. Thanks God!
