Sunday is Coming!!!!!
Are you excited? I sure am! Each and every week, I can’t wait for Sunday!
These times sure are exciting around Thrive Church, aren’t they?
I mean, each week, there are a ton of new faces and so much energy! I love the laughter at Thrive. I love all the smiles. I love the singing.
I just love being a part! That being said, there are 3 things you have to know for Sunday.
The first…Get on your knees and pray for Thrive Church. I should have said…please. Please get on your knees and pray for Thrive Church.
We have…HAVE…to be a church that is committed to prayer. And, not wimpy prayers! Pray strong and faith filled prayers.
Pray for new people to come to Thrive Church. Pray for people who are far from God to come to Thrive Church. Pray for people who doubt God and are ticked off at Him to come to Thrive Church. Pray for their hearts. Pray that God would get ahold of them and point them to Him!
Pray that God would raise up more volunteers. Pray that God would raise up more leaders. Pray that God would move in our hearts to be OUTRAGEOUS GIVERS. Pray that God would move in our hearts to be passionate about His Word!
Pray for Thrive’s unity, our community and our relationships.
The second…Bring your relational A game. Yup, that’s right. For some of you, it’s time to stop slipping in and slipping out. We need you to be a connector. We need you to learn names. We need you to welcome and accept people. We need you to shake hands.
Be on the lookout each and every week for new faces. Flood them with acceptance. Let’s turn Celebration Cinema into the most welcoming place anyone ever steps foot in, period!
The third…Step out of your comfort zone. For some of us, just getting to church is a huge step. And, that’s awesome. But, for others, we need a push.
…We need to show up early and help set up.
…We need to ask people their names.
…We need to volunteer in Thrive Kidz.
…We need to start giving financially.
…We need to help tear down.
…We need to sit by people we don’t know.
…We need to start praying for Thrive Church.
…We need to step up.
I’m so excited that Sunday is coming! I can’t wait!
