Aug. 16th

Thanks for praying for Convergence!

In my last update, I asked everyone to pray for our event called "Flight Night," and it was an amazing evening! We actually had over 40 people show up to throw Frisbees (and an Aerobie that went a LONG way!), footballs, boomerangs and several gliders while others launched air-powered rockets and took turns flying kites and an r.c. helicopter. We had a picnic together, and then had the Diet Coke/ Mentos extravaganza, which was probably the all-around favorite part of the event. The weather was gorgeous, and people hung out until dark. Much fun!

I also wanted to let everyone know that Chris Woods' uncle Ed lost his battle a few weeks ago. Please keep on praying for the whole family as they grieve their loss. Your prayers matter!

Finally, I wanted to share a little about our August 9th worship gathering. It was a pretty exciting day for us because we needed to open an area for toddlers. The kiddos were visiting from a bit of a distance (don't worry- they didn't come by themselves), so we knew it would only be last week, but it gave us a great opportunity to "test drive" what that ministry will look like when we need to offer it on a regular basis- good stuff.
In all, we had 13 first time visitors on the 9th, which was also a great adventure! Pleas keep on lifting us up to the Father- He is doing some really great things at C3 and I'm stoked to be a part of it!

In Him We Live,
