Caroline & Gloria serving in the Clothes Closet at the L.A. Dream Center
Matt w/ Tommy & Matthew Barnett
We had another exciting weekend at C3! I am constantly amazed at how God is growing our church and stretching our leadership and territory in His Kingdom.
Last Wednesday Matt traveled with our girls to Los Angeles, California. While he was there, he was part of a Pastor’s Roundtable at the L.A. Dream Center with Pastor Matthew Barnett and other ARC pastors. He also spoke Thursday night at Angelus Temple, the home church of the L.A. Dream Center. Then, on Sunday morning he spoke at New Port Church in New Port Beach, California with Pastor Jonathan and Diane Wilson. I’m so proud of Matt and excited that he and our girls will be home today!
I had the privilege of speaking Saturday night at TRUE Daughters’ Camp at the YMCA in Greensboro, North Carolina. “TRUE Daughter’s passion and commitment is to see all risen in their potential, fulfilling their unique purpose and living life beautifully”. There were about 150 sixth through twelfth grade girls there who are passionate for God and His purpose for their life. It is always an honor to speak vision and purpose to the next generation!
While Matt and I were away speaking, Chris Pipes, our Minister of Worship, spoke at all 3 services here at C3! He spoke a powerful and encouraging word entitled “Quitters, Campers and Climbers! I strongly encourage you to listen to this message. You can watch it here and listen to it here.
Matthew 5:1-2 “Now when he saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, and he began to teach them.” (NIV)
Quitters – Want the Dream but aren’t willing to pay the price.
Campers – Can climb to a certain place and think “that’s good enough”
Climbers – Dedicated to the lifelong journey
2 Corinthians 4:8-9 “We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.” (NIV)
