Great Easter Sunday!

My heart was full yesterday. I saw passion at Jubilee for Jesus and people. It's always been there, but it surfaced in a new way. I'm so proud of how well everyone invited. We had 275 in the city location yesterday and 361 total in both Jubilee locations. Both were a big answer to prayer.

People served in an excellent way...the childrens workers took on an increased number of kids, the greeters and ushers were also kept on their toes by all the new people, the worship band lead us in a excellent time of worship, the hospitality crew, the communion set up team, the photographers, prayer team, the offering team, the sound men and women and the list goes on and on. What hearts for service!

Jubilee also did a great job in being hospitable to new people. There was a buzz in a the room of conversation. The most common positive comment we get about Jubilee from our guests is the friendliness and the love that is expressed by Jubilee peeps taking the time to talk to them.

Jubilee Church St. Louis is just that...a church. It's not a one-man show. It's not centered around the gifting of a few. It's a growing group of men and women who are living stones, presenting themselves as living sacrifices out of worship of their God and great Champion...the Chief Cornerstone, Jesus Christ. I love being a member of this church and feel privileged to have a leadership role.

This Sunday, I will start a new series titled, "Sent to the City" where I will discuss the following three reasons why were are here: To Serve, To Love, To Build community. See you then! Watch this short promo video.
