We got up and out early this morning to help our Centerpointe Church set-up all their stuff to make their church plant a praise-success every Sunday. Chairs, audio equipment, video equipment, tables, instruments, tables, promo stuff, snacks, and more was just some of the stuff they are setting up every Sunday.
Many of our students then went out to the surrounding neighborhoods around the church and handed out fliers and other promo material to invite people to the church that morning…or someday soon.
We then had the opportunity to lead worship (Jason Cunningham and our CBSM band), and I had the opportunity to preach on “How could a good God allow evil?”
After the worship service, we then helped the church tear everything down, and went to the part for our lunch. After lunch, we let the our students play around a lot in the park…when the craziest game of parkour extreme tag broke out among our guys. It was hilarious!
About 2pm, we started gearing up, setting up for our VBS…while many of our kids went out to the communities around the park to invite kids to our VBS. Kids started showing up around 3:30pm, and we registered them for about the next hour or so as they trickled in. Almost everyone one of our students got a Cali kid to lead and mentor as they led them around to the different VBS stations of games, crafts, missions, snacks, Bible study, and Bible activity. At about 7pm, we took off back for our hotel, supper, and we gave the students a night off to swim, hangout, and just be cool.
All in all, we had an amazing day of worshipping Jesus, meeting new people, and serving this community for Christ’s glory. Please pray for our students as we will be canvassing neighborhoods tomorrow. We want to turn many families to Centerpointe Church! Also pray that God will bless our students with wisdom so that they might discern where these Cali kids stand in their faith with Christ. Thanks yall!
