Here is what has been happenning:
NEW SERMON SERIES
The contact series has ended here at The Church of the Cross and we are using the last two weeks of June to preach on the changes that God asks his people to make out of love for Him. Pastor Mike will be starting a new sermon series beinning July 8th called "A Chosen People."
COME TO THE PARTY
My last day as Lead Pastor at CrossPoint, (our other campus church) before moving to Pittsbuburgh to begin church planting, will be July 1st. We will have a testimony Sunday Service and a party in the afternoon to celebrate the four amazing years that we have had here in Bluffton growing the church and celebrating God's call to have us do a church plant in Pittsburgh.
THE HOUSE IS SOLD
Our house sold in an amazing 28 days which proves that God is very big and can do whatever he wants. On July 10th we will close on our house and move to Pittsburgh.
MOVING TO SQUIRREL HILL
We will be spending the bulk of July moving in to a great family home that we have leased. The house that we found is in a great area of the city, close to the cities famous Frick Park, and nesteld between the kids new school (Trinity Christian School) and Oakland (where we will be starting the new church).
VACATION AND THE NEW CHURCH
We will be spending several weeks in August on vacation before beginning our new work in the Diocese of Pittsburgh in September. It is amazing how supportive everyone has been and how well things are working out so far. Change is so hard sometimes but God has always cared for his people in over the top ways. Catherine and I want to thank ya'all for the ways you have supported us in this new adventure.
