Our missions trip to the reservation in AZ was great. Aside from the usual missions trip highlights, a highlight for me was the fact that a huge percentage of the students that attended the trip were kids who aren't super involved in our ministry. Many of them were kids who I've never really met so I had a great time learning new names, hearing new stories and all that good stuff.
It was week two of our "Heroes" series and our subject was the "Sinful Woman" (the woman who poured her perfume on Jesus' feet). Jason Petty, one of our high school pastors taught and did a fantastic job.
Small Group Curriculum:
I'm spending all day tomorrow editing/tweaking/re-writing 10 scripts for small group video curriculum for next school year. We're setting aside two days in a couple of weeks to try to film all 10...YIKES. But, our leaders and students seem to really like the stuff so it is time well spent.
New Regional Campus:
This weekend we will launch student ministries on our 3rd regional campus in Corona, a community about 45 minutes East. Sadly, I won't be able to be at the launch because I'll be on vacation.
It's time to make it official: I have switched my loyalty from Pepsi to Coke. Even typing this makes me feel disloyal and like I'm betraying an old friend. I'm sorry, Pepsi.
