You Might Not Know It... But You're On The Team

Sometimes everybody shows up at once.

Normally on any given Sunday maybe 60-70%* of the regular attenders are actually at church. If everybody came on the same Sunday, even between the two services, we would be totally swamped, people would have to be turned away, Kid City would be packed. If you were present around Easter last year you know what I'm talking about and if you are here for Easter this year you'll get another glimpse of it.

The reason I bring this up is because last Saturday night at SNL, our service for high school students, everybody showed up at once. It. Was. Awesome. The band was really tight. The energy was high. Students brought their disconnected friends. And we played a game involving eggs, bike helmets, and whole raw fish. God's word about honoring parents was received and even welcomed. And then to top it off we had some new leaders in there getting to know students, connecting with them and preparing to lead a Life Group. Man, when God brings it all together, He brings it all together.

Why am I telling you this? Well if you give to God at Next Level Church or if you have ever prayed for students or the student ministry then YOU are a part of God's work here. Thank you for giving so generously. I really believe that the local church is the hope of the world. It is the only organization that Jesus set up when He departed. I also happen to believe that I am a part of the best local church in the world. High School students are at a point where they are making critical decisions that affect the rest of their lives, your giving is allowing us to influence and invest in students so that they make the right choices.

*I am totally guessing here...
