Church is a Blast!

What kind of church can you go to where the pastor will only have a vague idea what he's preaching on, is unsure of how he's going to deliver it, yet the Lord totally moves, and the pastor has blast doing it?
What kind of church can you go to where you get to act out the sermon, hunt for clues that lead you to the main point of the sermon, and is highly interactive?
What kind of church can you go to where you can break dance, do the robot, the sprinkler, the lawnmower, the worm, or the disco dance while praising and worshipping God?
What kind of church can you go to and be accepted by everyone?

If you're wondering where this church has been all your life then I'll tell you. The only condition I have is that if this sounds like something that is interesting then you absolutely must come atleast once. This church is the church of our future. It's the church our kids go to.

This past sunday was a total blast. None of us teachers did the responsible thing and called around to see if there was a written up curriculum for this week. We all assumed, and were disappointed come sunday morning. Nonetheless, God used it to His glory. We did something completely different than the typical Adventure Bay hunting for clues deal. We had everyone act out the story of Moses sending the 12 spies into the land of canaan and it was so much fun. We will definitely do this about once a month.

The kids were laughing, participating, coloring, and answering questions like it was going out of style.

It's so nice to be able to escape into the world of a little kid once a week, jump around, roll on the floor and just have a blast and not have to be so serious or concerned about other things. I think I find that I'm most alive when I'm in that state of mind. Absolutely cut loose and just enjoying life. I can't wait till I can do that with my own kids.

If it's just for a weekend, sure, but as it stands I have no vacation days until I've been with ACE for a year. I'm already using one unpaid day for the Havasupai trip then another for my hunting trip. Let me know what the duration is and I'll let you know.

Awesome post. Kids are a gift from God. Their faith is so strong. I love this church too. I am so glad the Lord brought us here. Accepting of everyone. We were very hurt at our last church but things happen for a reason and we are where we are now. Blessings to you as you serve.

Hey bro,

I've always thought you were pretty childish, so that totally fits...lol...I'm sorry man...I'm toally kidding. Really, I've always been the childish one of the three, and being the youngest I guess that's only fitting. Anyway man, I just wanted to say hi and tell you I love you. Occasionally I'll forget what I'm doing, slip from reality into fantasy, and just imagine myself just hangin with ya, doing nothing much but having a good time anyway. I'm looking forward to that again. Love you man. LK

As am I, as am I. You have no idea how much I miss you. It's kinda funny how you don't realize how close you are to someone until their gone. Hoping you'll be back soon. Love you!
