Every Sunday I have a very unique privilege. It’s a privilege that I am honored to have and one that I do not take lightly.
To be the pastor of Thrive Church.
That vantage point gives me some pretty up close and personal views to what God is doing in our church. I love it! And, I want to make sure that I don’t miss what’s going on.
That being said, this past Sunday was incredible! Actually, it was humbling. Just to step back and get a first hand account of so many personal stories of what God is doing in lives is just awesome.
Here are a few of those stories…
Kim Morado. On Sunday, we interviewed an amazing Thriver named Kim. Kim started coming to Thrive almost from the our beginning and she jumped in with two feet! She has made a giant difference in our community with how stinking awesome she is. Every Sunday, EVERY SUNDAY Kim is at Thrive. She just doesn’t miss, rain or shine.
One of the things that I love about Kim is how she has adopted the section of people she sits by in the movie theater we use for our Sunday morning experience. She loves on them, sits by them, asks new folks to sit with her and has genuinely built a great community around her.
Students sitting in the front row. This past Sunday we had the whole front row of the movie theater filled with students.
IT WAS AWESOME!
I loved the energy they brought, the community, the laughs, the smiles and the sound.
Seeing Facebook light up. Our little church is only 7 and so months old, but it is just so humbling each week to read what people post about their experience at Thrive. I am beyond humbled that God is moving, He is changing lives. He is drawing people closer to Him. And He is wrecking peoples hearts.
Those are just a few of the things I loved about this past Sunday at Thrive!
