Big weekend for Verve…

We had a Mission Team in from Palm Valley Church in Phoenix. I love their church. This is the fourth time they’ve sent a group, and every one has been so incredibly servant-hearted.

We had the Mission Team throw a Block Party for a neighborhood. We had a few Ververs serve with them. It was a great day. Too crazy to count, but about 200 people came out for free food, bounce house-ing, corn hole, music, and more. Very cool to get to serve our community in a really fun way.

We did some advertising this week (doorhangers, radio ads, ad in the Las Vegas Weekly) and saw our attendance drop a little. Yes, drop. Not sure why – maybe the start of football season? It’s hard enough when all your advertising says, “Church For People Who Don’t Like Church!” – so we’re inviting people to come who know they don’t want to come. But throw in the fact that those people, who don’t like church, have to miss football to come check us out. A tough sell for sure!

But … we had great services, and God is doing great things at Verve!
