Whew!

We have been busy this week with our church's new building dedication services. It started Sun and finished tonight. 5 services in the last 4 days. I feel like I am on spiritual over-load...(is that possible?) Each service was simply amazing. Different speakers, different methods, same annointed, kingdom messages. My husband and I were talking earlier today how we recieved confirmations, conviction, an infusing of supernatural strength, and a myriad of other things!
We have been so blessed with our church. We "found" it right after moving here 5 yrs ago.
It is a church that focuses on family. And on raising the standard -- in our lives, our familes, and our region. The church has seen tremendous growth these past few yrs...going from a couple hundred to over 500. Now, after much anticipation, we are in our brand-new, state-of-the-art building. And it was a packed house every night.
The kids love it and have been as excited about it as we are. Ashleigh loves the new kids sanctuary and classrooms. Logan says "Yeah! New church!" when we pull into the parking lot each time.
I have loved soaking these last few nights. But physically, I'm tired and ready to get back to scheduled bedtimes and meal, etc....My house is ready for it to be over too. Whew, what alot of catch-up cleaning we have to do.

Julie, so many things in your blog today were so wonderful. YOur conversation with your husband about what you get from your church, the excitement from the kids on a new building (our church is building a new preschool building, which I am on the committee for), but most of all what your church focuses on. We are going in the opposite direction, losing probably 100 members in the last 3 or so years. It is so depressing. Thanks for sharing about your new church building.
