Was awesome. On Saturday, we hosted a community Easter egg hunt at Grace Hill Elementary School. About 75 volunteers, a third of which were teens, came and hid 5,000 eggs and served a hot grilled lunch to about 350 people. The school was gracious enough to allow us to invite all 500 of their students which allowed us to have some great conversations with people in the community. (Watch the highlight video.)
On Sunday, we broke our previous attendance record (176, set on our launch Sunday) with 215! With a full band and a full theater, our first Easter service as a new church family was moving. And the highlight? Two young people gave their lives to Jesus and will be baptized soon.
We loved the weekend – it was exhilarating – but our hearts ache for the lost. We’re begging God to open doors for us to connect with people who are far from God in northwest Arkansas, to empower us to make disciples who bring others to Jesus, and to keep the mission and the vision as non-negotiable priorities at all times.
How was your Easter weekend? If you were at Grace Hills, tell me what you thought. And if you were somewhere else, tell me how it went. Go!
