Weekend Ramblings for February 3, 2020
Good evening! It's been a great evening for me as we hosted a small group leader and host dessert fellowship with 40 friends. What a night. I can't wait for life change to take place through the context of community. In the meantime, here are my Weekend Ramblings.
1. It was awesome to be a part of the Williams' family adoption on Friday! Their boys are the nicest kids! Congrats!
2. Laura, Davis and I were given the great Christmas gift of tickets to the Lion King last Tuesday. It was phenomenal!
3. My sister Lisa’s birthday was yesterday. Happy Birthday, groundhog. :)
4. We can't wait to share some really big things coming for Main Street kids in the spring!
5. You need to sign up for kids and student camps this summer! Go to discovermainstreetchurch.com.
6. I am thankful for the area's pastors. I look forward to hosting some of them soon for lunch.
7. Thank you for giving sacrificially. We've had three large gifts in the last 30 days.

16. Join me in praying for some of my pastor friends (outside of Main Street) who are facing some ministry challenges.
17. Last Monday, one of our staff led the staff meeting devotional. It created 20 minutes of conversation. I loved every minute of it. #DoingLife
