A Note to our Eagle Pointe Family
Eagle Pointe family,
I’m STILL overwhelmed, amazed and thankful for all that took place in our Easter services… here are a few things I want to say to you all…
#1 – THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to all of you who accepted our “U+2 Easter Challenge” & went out of your way to bring people to 1 of our Easter services. We saw God move in a HUGE way! We had our highest attendance ever with over 500 adults & about 140 kids & teens. We had 30+ people commit their lives to Christ, many people commit to get baptized at our BBQ & Baptisms on May 14, & many others commit to attending our Pizza with the Pastors & to get in a Life Group. GO GOD & Go Eagle Pointe! You ALL Rock!!!
#2 – I want to encourage all of you who invited someone to Easter & they did not show… or maybe you brought someone who is far from God & they did not respond to the Gospel. DO NOT GIVE UP ON THEM! Remember, God was patient with you… and He wants us to be patient with others. As you’ve heard me say – God never gave up on me – so I CANNOT give up on others. Just keep praying for them & inviting them!
#3 – I did this on twitter & facebook Sunday afternoon… but I wanted to say it here as well — “THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU” to ALL of our volunteers who sacrificed their time, energy, & effort to make sure that so many people were welcomed, cared for, & had a great experience when they arrived at Eagle Pointe on Easter Sunday. God has blessed us with the greatest volunteer army on the planet! You all are making a huge difference & I thank God for you all every day! Keep up the amazing work!
#4 – The people you brought with you and/or the people who you invited but didn’t make it on Easter… GET THEM HERE THIS SUNDAY! We’re going to continue this “F-Bomb” series & this Sunday we’re talking about how do we let go of the past, the guilt, the shame, the regret, truly forgive ourselves, & launch out into the future God has planned for each of us! In fact, I challenge you to view each Sunday as a “U+2 Challenge”.
Eagle Pointe’rs – Thanks for being who you are! A bunch of messed up, reckless, throwing caution to the wind, unstoppable idiot rhinos for Jesus! I love & appreciate you all!
