This Sunday we will be meeting at Cathedral Baptist Church in Jonesboro. You can check there facility out here. We will be meeting Sunday morning @10:30 in the Family Life Center. The Pastor is moving 3 of his Sunday School classes to a different location so we can use the Family Life Center. They are being very generous. Sunday, if you see any members of Cathedral, be sure and let them know you are thankful. James and I are meeting with Pastor Doug Welborn today at 2:00. If any new information comes available I'll let you know.

We had a painting party last night with two of our cell groups. I think we experienced an extreme makeover moment. I've always wondered if those guys really build a house in 7 days. By the way, I've talked to people that know people who have been a part of the extreme makeover experience...and they say it is true...7 days. Anyway, we had a small example last night of how they do it. We had a paint sprayer, several rollers & plenty of help. We painted a large hallway with 10 foot ceilings, the firewall in the back of the auditorium & the stage in 1 hour. I'm not lying...1 hour we had it all knocked out...it was awesome. The church is really coming together now. Once we get all the painting done we can start on the flooring. It should go quick now. As announced this past Sunday, we will be at Lake Frierson this weekend for a service and Family Day. Next weekend, nothing for sure just yet, but we will have a plan in place to announce this Sunday at Frierson. I wanted to post some pictures but I left my camera at home and if I use my cameraphone...well it wouldn't really help much. See ya!

So, I've been going thru video tapes and cd's looking for clips and pictures from the past 5 or 6 years. As you know, this Sunday is our last weekend service at the Warehouse. I decided to do something a little different this weekend. We will be watching video's & viewing pictures from our time in the warehouse. It's amazing how people change over the course of a few years...especially our children. Looking at some of the clips/pictures has made me want to stop time...if I could. Our kids grow up way too fast. I read thru Ecclesiastes 3 ( A time for everything) and he never says a time to stop time. Oh well, we'd better make the most of each day. Come out this Sunday as we laugh, cry, worship and embrace the next step on this journey.

Well, it looks like we'll be moving out of our current facility on the 13th of April. We will have our service that morning, go grab some lunch and encourage as many as possible to come back and help us move everything from the Warehouse to the new facility on Grant St. So, you would think we will have service on Grant St. on the 20th of April. Yeah, that would make sense, but I'm not 100% sure that will happen. Our plan is to meet at the new facility on the 20th, but just in case we aren't ready to go, we will be meeting somewhere else. We have some different options on a filler facility for the 20th, so stay tuned and we'll keep you updated during the weekend service and with this blog. This I know, we will be at our current facility on the 6th & 13th...after that it gets a little dicey. All this reminds me of the Israelites journey in the book of Exodus. They followed the cloud by day and the fire by night. If the clould stayed...they stayed and if it moved...they moved. God is telling us to move to a different facility...one more effective for reaching our community. This journey is about to get more exciting!
