Sunday After Church

  • We are bursting at the seams in our first service. Would some of you move and commit to the second service?

  • Second service is here to stay! The attendance is strong enough that it has taken on a life all its own. Indeed, there is really a second congregation at PCC now. I would like to see the attendance in both services a little more balanced.

  • The last song in the song service today was awesome! It was “God With Us” by Mercy Me. If that song didn’t set your heart on fire, your wood is wet. Renee J. knocked it out of the park.

  • The buzz at PCC is astonishing. I don’t know what God is up to, but I think something big is about to happen.

  • Got a new small group forming for college-aged adults. About 12-13 signed up on the first day of registration. Not sure of the exact number,- about ½ of the sign up sheet had names. Wow!

  • Thirty people are (currently) signed up for Seminar 101. There is bound to be even more by the time we offer it in 3 weeks.

  • A lot of new people attend PCC.

  • I met a lot of newcomers today too.

  • We got a “pass” on Tropical Storm Fay. Instead of 15 inches of rain, we only got 2-3 inches. Not enough to rain us out.

  • Attendance was about 8% lower than average. Still had a full house.

  • I’m going to log about 50 miles on my bike this week.

  • The sermon today was powerful. Part 2 of the “Prodigal Son” series – “The Goodness of the Father.” CDs flew off the shelf.

  • Next week we will be looking at the SIN of ELDER BROTHER. I’m really looking forward to that one. It’s about the legalistic mind-set of the Pharisees. And I thought that I would WARN YOU – the descendants of the Pharisees are still alive and well in the church today! Fasten your seat belts for this one.

  • We have a lot of hurting people in our community. My prayer is that God will SEND as MANY of them to PCC that WE CAN possibly HANDLE!

  • Renae, Gene, and I are going to a pastors/ministers forum Tuesday at Pace Assembly of God. Should be interesting.

  • The grass at PCC needs to be CUT in a major way.

  • I am always in someone’s headlights. When I go into town I bump into people all the time who know me, but I don’t know them. Freaky. I’m trying to get used to that. People are always nice.

  • I will not endorse your political candidate for the presidential election. Government can't save you anyway.

  • I’m amazed at the number of young couples God is sending into our church. It is a new season at PCC. The number of 20-something year-old couples with small children who are walking in our doors each week is very exciting.

  • Between now and Christmas is going to be insane.

  • This Wednesday night is a youth, family picnic. Grills are hot at 6:00 PM.

  • Renae and I are fixing to hit the bike trail in Milton.

  • Be sure to check in this week. I've got a creative writing spurt going on right now. Tomorrow mornings post (or Tuesday) will be entitled:


  • That's all for now. Time to go bust a gut.
