New City Downtown

Right now I'm sitting in our "oh, so nice vacation home," our "home away from home!" I couldn't be happier and more content spending the weekend with the Watson's! We will definitely have a come apart when it's time to go (all of us!) - like in an hour and a half. Noah, Anna, and Elijah have just had the best time together! Makes vacation so much easier, the kids being content that is!

If you haven't heard, Keith has been in the process of planting a church in Downtown Macon called New City Church. Well, today was the first service and WOW the Lord was faithful. Isn't He always? There were about 200 people there and everything went so smooth...from the service, powerpoint, band, nursery, even preaching was good, yes even preaching!! We were reminded of "our story" our redemption story, God pursuing us. Pretty amazing to think about!

Glad you guys could get away a bit. And cool to hear about Keith's new church! God is faithful, and it's really obvious when He's in something. Good to hear that it went so well.

Maybe a good way to raise support for New City Church would be to offer VACATION PACKAGES - like the one you enjoyed - only we could charge our vacationers.

Dollar General said...

Okay, Okay, Okay - I thought we bought that house - with a lifetime of friendship, unlimited laughs, and LOTS of support!!

So if we did charge vacationers we would have to get a peice of the profit for Jason's Apologetics ministry! HA!

Love ya'll - I hope y'all are having fun!!

keith said...

DON'T YOU HAVE YOUR OWN HOUSE FOR THAT!!!! You know - you charge for YOUR vacationers, and we charge for OUR vacationers!

Dollar General said...

Keith, WHAT DOES THAT MEAN!! You know that people don't vacate at our house b/c our beds deflate!! What do we charge $25 - didn't we give you that?!? Oh, wait, Jason said I failed to write the check!! It's in the mail -

Jason said if you don't be nice (and let us have our rights to OUR vacation HOUSE) that we won't come to your church anymore!! HA HA HA! You know you can't keep us away you FAT LARD!!

Don't make me cry myself to sleep thinking we aren't welcome and now we are gonna have to pay cash to go on vacation...What's the price of GREAT FRIENDS?!

keith said...

Page, Page, Page...are the pregnancy juices causing some brain malfunctions? C'mon, your vacation house is always waiting for you! I just couldn't figure out how you should get a cut of the pay from other vacationers!

Amy said...

Okay you guys! THis was supposed to be about a church plant's first service, not some vacation! Cut it out you big fat lards!
BEHAVE!
