The Official End Of Summer

Alright, y’all! Summer is now over, but the work is just beginning. Things are kickin’ at C3 Church. Fall is traditionally a time of good growth at Church. Everyone is back from vacations, the kids are back in school and new residents can focus on finding a church home. Usually in church life you have a lull in the summertime and can make adjustments and preparations for the fall. As most of you know things don’t quite follow the “traditional” pattern at C3. Over the summer we have seen good growth which really hasn’t given us a “traditional” lull to contemplate the fall. We have been working hard during the summer as we grow much more than expected and at the same time we have been preparing for the fall. So we have been going full steam ahead in the summer leading into a fall. Quite simply said, there has been no difference in the seasons just good hard work continuously all year. That’s not a bad thing! It’s a God thing and I believe how all churches should function if new people are being introduced to Christ.

Yesterday was supposed to be a “down” Sunday because of the last holiday weekend of the summer. But, just like in true form, C3 broke the mold. Yesterday was a crazy day with stunning attendance. We had a ton of first time guests and people are just making church a priority! It is truly fantastic to see what God is doing!

Lastly for those of you who might not know. I will be leading our Community Groups as I take over the role of Small Groups Pastor. Pastor Travis will now be able to focus solely on Children’s and Youth, while I focus on Small Groups and Connections Ministry. I am so excited because we have the potential to see exponential growth in our Community Groups as we continue to make connections with each other as we grow in our walk with Christ. We are also starting a “New Believers Experience” with more details to be shared real soon.

So, y’all, summer is over and the work continues! Pray for the staff as we continue to navigate unbelievable growth and pray for each other as we continue to Connect the Community with Christ! Remember to “Invest and Invite” as we continue the “Bodacious 80’s”! Wow, the end of summer, where did it go?
