Thanksgiving Plans

We had a fun trip in Branson for a couple of days. Silver Dollar City will never be the same after Abby was finally tall enough to ride all the rides. She loved the roller coaster, teacups, big swing, and boat swing.

I'm excited to have some time with my family this Thanksgiving. We don't have real big plans. My mom is in the hospital fighting an infection and will most likely get out Thursday.

It was good to announce to our leadership about our expansion of our facilities. We have had some good meetings with the architects and are looking forward to building about 16,000 square foot of additional preschool, elementary and adult space. A new foyer, coffee shop, bookstore, a great playroom for our preschool, and game rooms for our elementary age are just some of the things to come in 2010. I'm excited.

Our Awana ministry continues to grow on Wednesday nights. Over 160 kids each Wednesday is a great thing! Our youth ministry is averaging over 100 as well. God is really bringing more and more young families to our church and we are truly grateful. Our Life Group is growing as well with 31 in attendance last time. God is truly good.

Fall Festival a great success!

We had around 4,000 people on property Sunday night for our annual Fall Festival! What a great time of meeting tons of new people.

Kylee and Abby are both ready for our AWANA Grand Prix. Here are the picture of their cars this year. An ice cream cone and a popsicle! Guess who has what.
