Over 400 show up forChrist mas eve at the Red Barn!
What a great night it was! Everything worked out well and I can't thank enough those who worked hard to make it happen. Thanks to Milo Wilson and the worship team on the hard work they put into the Andrew Peterson music. Thanks for those who helped take chairs down and move tables. Thanks to Carlos and Lynn Anders for bringing coffee, hot chocolate, and apple cider. Thanks to Andy Morris and Trey Thompson for allowing us to use their truck. Thanks to John Mauldin and the parking team for the fine job they did. Thanks to Buddy Bridwell for bush hogging the field so there would be enough parking. I always get in trouble when I start listing names cause I inevitably leave someone out. Thanks to everyone at Ridgeview who were so welcoming. I got a comment today from someone in our church who invited a friend and their comment was how friendly everyone was that evening.
Most importantly, the gospel was shared that evening and I know of at least one person who approached me after the service to tell me she had received Christ as Lord and Savior. That's what it's all about!
Well, I'm back from seeing inlaws in Dallas and I'm ready to start the new year. Looking forward to starting a new message series Sunday on "Margin for Life." Man, God really spoke to me over Christmas vacation about margin in my life and I know many in our church need to hear it. I believe we are busier than God intended us to be.
