Things just seem to be going really well at Verve right now. Our attendance this summer has consistently been about 25% more than our attendance the year before. We had 27 baptisms in May and June (compare that to 50 in our first 14 months), and had 6 more this weekend (so now 33 in the last nine weeks). We have more people stepping up to volunteer. All kinds of great signs of real health.
Started a new series this week, Losing My Religion, in which we’re studying through the book of Galatians. It’s amazing how something written to people 1,960 years ago, who lived half-way across the globe, can be so totally relevant to us today in America.
Gonna be at a camp the rest of this week, so a few of the posts the next few days are going to be old one’s. But unless you’ve been reading my blog for years, they’ll be new to you. Enjoy.
