6 items I want @kalamazoofirst to know on Labor Day

Happy Labor Day KFirst!

There a few things I would love to share with you today…

#1 – What an awesome day at KFirst yesterday morning.  Pastor Matt brought a great word “Connect the Dots.”  If you missed it, check out the KFirst Website or download it in iTunes in the next few days. PMatt shared his testimony and challenged  us with a TRUTH: “The next generation will know Jesus because of people who chose to obey Him today”  I found myself reminiscing of those people in my life that have influenced me and are the “dots” in my life story.  It was an amazing site to see our students and school faculty come forward for prayer as they are challenged to live out another TRUTH: “How you live your life today has the potential to change someone’s life tomorrow”  Awesome job Matt!

#2 – Tomorrow is, officially, the day where all of our children will be school.

  • Pray over their transition into a new school year, a new schedule, and for some, a new school surrounding.
  • Pray over their connections to peers and faculty.
  • Pray for protection for them.
  • Pray for the faculty and administrators (teachers, principals, custodians, bus drivers, etc).
  • Most of all, pray over outreach possibilities your children will have as they live out Christ in the one of the greatest mission fields in the world.

#3 – Today is Labor Day. Labor Day is a creation of the labor movement. It is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers.  Oddly enough, Labor Day is seen as a day of rest.  Find some time today find some rest.  But also find a way to invest in your marriage, family, and/or friendships.  Have a BBQ, invite some friends over, and celebrate friendship.

#4 – This is a the week we launch “Dust.” As I stated this past Monday, this series has been developing in my heart for quite a few months.  The old saying, “May you be covered in the dust of your rabbi.” Reason being, years ago, disciples who closely followed their rabbis along sandy, dirty roads would get covered, quite literally, with the dust of their rabbi.  Join us on this journey as we launch a new series that explores our endeavor to follow Jesus, our teacher/rabbi.  I’m so excited to travel this journey with you.

#5 – DON’T MISS WEDNESDAY!!!

Night of Worship and Prayer is this Wednesday at 6:45p.m. It’s going to be a great time of soaking in the Lord’s presence as we intercede over our school year.

#6 –Pastor’s Prayer has changed to Wednesday at 9:30 JUST FOR SEPTEMBER.  I can’t wait to connect with the prayer team and launch into the fall.

In case you missed our video announcements, here you go.

That’s it for this Monday…I love serving KFirst and cannot WAIT for this Sunday.

Thanks for letting me ramble…
