Good morning. Just a quick note before I go back to bed. This week has been a full one, mostly doing preparation for what's coming up next. To see what the "next" is you can look at our church website "Leadership Quest" page and "Re:Build" -- the clever name that someone in our church network came up with for the message series that we're planning to start on August 10. (On Thursday I met with network partners to begin work on a fall series -- based on the first half of the Gospel of Mark.)
At the beginning of last week we hosted a "families with young children cookout." We're also looking for responses to a "Children and Youth Ministry Survey" (download here) so we can better prepare for fall programming that traditionally begins at the beginning of September.
In the midst of this Toni and I are expecting our first grandchild! Exciting times!
