So I’m trying a little sumpin-sumpin different this week for yall.  I’m putting the usual blog (sermon) in an uploaded file called “(sermon)” just above.  I want to use this space just to tell you about the awesome night we had.

The night started off with a crazy-rockin song and our 5 minute countdown timer.  As soon as our countdown hit 0:00, a video immediately started up.  The video was the new iPod touch video with our own song behind it, and the end of the video was our “iGrab” announcement slide (pic in previous blog).  iGrab is our brand-spakin new contest for our students to bring as many people to our church’s revival called Harvestfest.  Everyone who comes on our “student night” during Harvestfest will get to enter their name into the drawing.  And for every friend they bring, they can enter their name into the drawing that many more times.  The winner of student night will receive an 8GB iPod touch.  I don’t usually like prizes and contests like this, but I want to build as much excitement as possible into our students to bring their friends to hear the gospel of Christ.  We then went through some other announcements on our upcoming annual ski trip, etc.  Continue reading

Hurry Up and Wait

That’s what I’ve felt like all day.  I’ve been hurrying all day to make sure everything is ready for tonight…but I’m ready for tonight to get here…but I have to wait.  Tonight is our student worship service.  And in the words of our studnets…it’s gonna be so CRUNK!

We’re unveiling a sweet contest tonight for a little incentive to our students to grab their friends and bring them to our revival called “Harvestfest.”  Pastor Zach actually doesn’t want us calling it “revival” at all.  So shhhh!  Don’t tell him I already said it. Continue reading
