We have been showing movies for the past 3 Sundays but next Sunday we are going to show "God's Not Dead" which was just in the theaters a couple of months ago, so we are praying and hoping for a big turnout! It's a great movie, so I do pray folks come to watch it; enjoy themselves; and then come back on Sunday to hear the new series by the same name. Let's pray and ask God to work!

It's Tuesday, July 29, 2014, so I thought I better post to record how things are going this summer. We are showing movies on Sunday night now for the month of July and have shown 3 movies with our biggest movie coming up this coming Sunday night which is "God's Not Dead" which was just in the theaters a few months ago. We pray for a big crowd and hopefully some new folks who need to find a church home. May God bless our efforts. We also continue to hang curtains, paint boards, put down a new floor in the kitchen, and use our talents to paint baseboards, paint quarter-rounds, and just make the church a beautiful building in which we all can come and worship God. I appreciate Jim and Marjory and it's quite evident that God sent them our way to help us with all these building projects; they sure are an encouragement and their help is just overwhelming at times. It's hard to tell where we would be if we did not have them doing so much of the work these past weeks and now months; we have been blessed to keep our 30 plus congregation over the summer months despite lots of folks going on vacations. Ginny has now painted the kitchen and the nursery and made both rooms quite appealing and beautiful. The nursery has a magnetic wall to hold things for the kids to see and play with and both the teen room and the children's room have painted chalkboards to aid in the lessons the teachers bring out to the children. So, a lot is happening at Life Pointe and God continues to bless us and our efforts. Hopefully we will see a "harvest" soon.

Just thought I would post another quick post listing a few items God has orchestrated over the past few weeks! On the first Sunday of June we were still at Round Hill but the city school folks didn't really want us in there any longer. So when we were there the second Sunday too, I know they were not quite happy; still we then told them we had to be in there one more Sunday which was Father's Day and on that Sunday they had continued work so that a wall in the cafeteria was gone and the backyard was all tore up and gravel and dirt were in different places, so I knew we would have to be gone soon! So then after that 3rd Sunday, someone called and told us on Wednesday I think, that we definitely could not be in the school the following Sunday; seems we had exhausted our extended stay time but wouldn't you know it; we were told on Wednesday we couldn't be in the school anymore and then on Thursday, the very next day, were approved by the city inspectors so we could then move into our new building. Talk about closing one day and opening another one! Literally, that is what God did! So I love it when God is that clear to us! Takes out the chance of me messing things up! So we are enjoying our new home knowing it is where God wanted us to be! Amazing Grace and an Amazing God!

Wow, here it is July 8th, 2014 and so much has happened since my last post! Lots of things to show God has provided us with "things" we needed and has blessed us with things that only He could have provided. Whether it is something for Life Pointe Church or something for my son Andy and his friends that were traveling to London, Scotland, Paris and several other places too! God is indeed good and showed Himself mighty! As for Life Pointe Church, we had our very first Sunday service on June 22nd, 2014. That is 06-22-14 for our very first ever service! That is amazing and astounding news when you think this is something we have been looking forward to for over a year! We're in the building!!! It just seems so hard to believe that we are finally in our new building! That's the BIG, BIG news and it has been so much of a blessing these past 3 weeks; things are looking good too, it seems every time we go into the building something else looks a little more like a "home" for those who will visit and for those who are in the Life Pointe family. It is just so good to finally be "home" in God's new home! I can write so much but I'll do that later when I have more time, but for now, "We're in our new church home!" and that's great news! Praise the Lord!
