Monday Miscellaneous

Took the weekend off to go with to the desert with a group from church. There were 32 families in a massive circle of RVs, dirt bikes, quads and sand rails. We had a great time and the 'church service' around the camp fire on Saturday night was fantastic.

A crew from our Children's and Student teams went to Catalyst last week. For most of them, it was their first time. The majority said it was the best conference they've been to. I have yet to go. For some reason, there always seems to be a conflict in my schedule.

Our junior high services went well. We are in our second week of our three week conflict series, 'Get Out Of My Face'. That, combined with week one of Choctober combined for a fun weekend.

I'm heading into what feels like my busiest season in a long time for 'producing' stuff. I need to write discussion questions for about 6 small group lessons, write 5 messages for a junior high conference, write 2 youth specialties workshops and complete a few other significant church-wide projects all in the next two weeks. yikes.

Dan, each year we replace october with choctober. For the entire month we play chocolate games, give away chocolate prizes etc.

This weekend we're putting plastic down the center Isle and having a a chocolate 'slip n slide of goo'.

Choctober is always one of the highlites of our year.
