Wow. 1st Wednesday was very cool last night. The dinner was terrific (very large thanks to all who helped in the kitchen!!!). We had around 120 pre-register for the pizza dinner. We had a great crowd in the sanctuary. We don't count, but it was at least 120-130 with a bunch of kids downstairs as well. The sanctuary looked amazing. Picture a large, cedar cross at the front of the stage, most of the house lights out, red floods on the cross on the back wall, blue floods on the stage partitions, and many candles lit around the stage. It really was an atmosphere for worship. Ruthie, Shea and Amanda led on vocals with an acoustic band. It was awesome.
This Sunday is Remembrance Day. Don't forget, service is @ 9:00 a.m. After service, most of us will walk or drive down to the Cenotaph for the Service of Remembrance.
I'm praying at the Remembrance Service @ Marysville Elementary tomorrow. Neat!
Pastor Mark is preaching this Sunday. The title is, "Freedom isn't Free". It's going to be another great weekend at Olivet. I say that alot, but we really have been blessed this Fall. Plus, when I say it's going to be good, it puts a lot of pressure on Pastor Mark ;->
There is a District Men's Ministry Training Event @ Olivet Saturday morning. Ken McGeorge, the District Director of Men's Ministry is one of our own and is giving point leadership to this event. All men are most welcome to come. I'm doing the opening session on , "God's Unique Call to Men".
I hope you are having a great week. Have you gotten your 1/2 hour of silence yet??
