Weekend Highlights

1. The weather in Oklahoma has been unbelievable. It's been a very mild winter in the great state of OK!

2. This was an unusual weekend for me.

3. Saturday, Kurt, a journalist from a Christian magazine, came to OKC to do a story on our church. He came from out of state. They are going to feature People's Church in their magazine.

4. I met Kurt at Cheesecake Factory, and we did some of the interview there.

5. As I was telling him the story of PC, I couldn't help but getting a little emotional thinking about how far the Lord has brought us!

6. The journalist came to our church on Sunday morning and interviewed some of the staff and a few attendees in the church.

7. Sunday was a solid day at PC. The message was very challenging. Jesus doesn't just want to be our Savior; He wants to be our Lord!

8. There were many salvations! I love seeing people surrender their lives to Christ!!

9. Last year, we switched our entire system to Fellowship One.

10. Sunday, we launched our new check-in system with Fellowship One. Everything went pretty smooth.

11. Attendance was great on Sunday. We were around 27 percent larger than the same Sunday last year!

12. Thank you to everyone who has committed to attending the 8:45AM experience until we get into the new facility! YOU ARE AWESOME!

13. We had our Newcomers’/Membership Luncheon after church. We had many people in attendance, and many people became a member of PC!

14. Membership at PC can be summed up in one word: COMMITMENT! We need to be committed to a local church!

15. Last night, my wife and I finished watching season one of 24! We can't wait to start season two (hopefully, this week sometime)!

16. A huge thank you to all the volunteers who helped set up, serve food and provide childcare for the Newcomer's/Membership Luncheon. You folks at PC never cease to amaze me with your servants’ hearts!

17. One of our awesome church leaders and volunteers at PC is bringing ribs with all the fixin's to the entire staff this week! I can't wait to eat up some ribs this week in the office!

18. I absolutely love the staff that I get to serve with. It's an honor to work with such passionate and hard-working people.

19. Church family, be praying about what God wants you to commit to the CRAZY Campaign. Let's get on the table and let God speak to our hearts.

20. PC, don't forget that this Friday we are having a 12-hour CRAZY prayer meeting. We will be praying from 8AM to 8PM. We will be closing out our 12-hour prayer meeting with a live praise, worship and prayer experience. Don't you dare miss this incredible night of encountering God!
