Friday night the leaders of Palm Valley Church gathered for a special Seize The Moment commitment event. It was an incredible time together, and the Spirit of God was present in the house!
At the end of the night our leaders made commitments (150 of them) to give $6,034,076 to fulfill the vision of STM.
You read that right, our leaders came up BIG and acted by faith! Now it’s time for the rest of the body at Palm Valley Church to follow. On Sunday May 13th our whole church will come together to make commitments, I can’t wait!
As I mentioned yeseterday, we’re rockin’ 4 servies each week. This is allowing us to create more space so more people can meet Jesus. What a privilege!
A couple ways you can help…
1) Attend any service but the Sunday 10:00 am. This service is packed, please choose one of the other three.
2) Serve. If you’re not currently volunteering in a ministry, do so ASAP. This will help us minister to every person God sends our way.
Thanks in advance for your help. I love locking arms with the people of Palm Valley Church, you’re the best!
As we’re in this Seize The Moment campaign, I’m getting a ton of questions from people who are praying about their commitment. Questions like “how do I determine my commitment”, “what does it mean for me to sacrifice”, etc…
In order to every person at Palm Valley really grow through this process, I’m doing a special message this week called “How To Hear From God”. Make sure you don’t miss, I believe this is going to challenge us all.
Man, tonight the pressure was put on me in a big way! Bottom of the last inning, my 7 year old’s team was down 11-10. As the pitcher I was sweating bullets. The last thing I wanted was for my lousy pitching to be the reason we lost.
So, what happened? The boys brought their sticks to the plate and did the job. Four runs scored to win the game in our last-ups. We’re so rollin’ heading into the playoffs. I’m not sure if I can handle the playoff pressure though
As I drove home Sunday I realized just how taxing 4 services is physically. I was worn-out, but it’s worth it. We’re created more space for more peopel to come meet Jesus. Sunday 10:00 was jam-packed, so if you can move to the earlier or later service it would help free us some seats.
I really sense God working in our church in a big way right now.
There have been times in Palm Valley’s history where I’ve felt like God is getting ready to bust things loose; I feel like that right now. Why? Lives are being changed, people are coming to Jesus every service, our staff is working their tails off, leaders in our church are stepping up all over the place, prayer is a greater priority, and we’re getting ready to make some huge sacrificial financial commitments to build our campus.
On the flip side, we’re seeing the evil one attack like mad; people are leaving the church because we’ve changed (dumb reason, we should always be changing), health crisis are happening daily, and its’ awesome. The evil one attacks because he knows God is up to something big!
Palm Valleyer’s, let’s keep our eye on the ball and watch God do some flat out miraculous stuff!
