HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY to all the wonderful moms who call Element Church “home.” I also want to publicly praise the ONLY person I can imagine being the mom to our kids, Sabrina. You are an AMAZING wife and mother. I love you! Our kids and our home are SO blessed. And to my mom. I can’t imagine my life without your leadership in it. You set forth such a Godly example of motherhood for us kids. Thank you for all you did and all you still do. And for anything I haven’t apologized to you about that I haven’t thought of…I’m sorry!
I LOVE OUR CHURCH! Today was such a great day at Element. We concluded our Power of ONE series and celebrated Mother’s Day with some testimony videos of the two moms we blessed with the Power of ONE dollar experiment. Here are the ruminations on the day.
— If it were Mother’s Day EVERY Sunday we would never have a space issue in 2nd service because they ALL came to first service at the Cheyenne Campus. HA! The 9 AM service was SLAMMED.
— I went into the Living Room after each service today and happened to be the ONLY one in there for a few minutes following first service. I’ve never seen so many guests in there at one time. They just kept coming. Thankfully the troops came rolling in to rescue me, or my introverted personality may have led me to convulsions.
— I always love going into the Living Room. It is so great to meet the new people who are coming to our church, hear a little bit of their story and help them get the information they need.
— I ESPECIALLY love when Elementers invite someone new and they bring them in the Living Room to get connected. KEEP INVITING.
— The majority of the day was given to some video highlights and testimonies from the Power of ONE. We had highlights from the power of ONE day serving opportunity. LOVED seeing all the people out in Wheatland and Cheyenne loving and serving their community.
— We also showed two testimonies of the people we blessed with the Power of ONE dollar experiment. One was a single mom from Wheatland, and the other was a single grandmother from here in Cheyenne. The grandmother has emergency custody of her grandson who was born addicted to heroin. Both stories were SO powerful, and I LOVE to see how the church stepped in and was able to bless them in such powerful and tangible ways.
— Thank you to everyone who participated in the power of ONE dollar experiment. You guys made a bigger impact than you’ll ever know. SO, SO proud of our church. You guys are awesome.
— DEMO ON OUR REMODEL PROJECT BEGINS FRIDAY!! We have a TON to demo and are planning about ten days of it, so if you are 18 or older and have some time over the next couple weeks, sign up HERE to be a part of demolition. Walls need to come down. Ceiling tiles taken out. Bathrooms torn apart. It’s going to be FUN! I can’t build a THING but I can destroy just about everything.
— We are doing ALL the demo ourselves, and like I said, there is a TON of it. This is a huge cost savings, so we need a LOT of people out helping. There are 3 hour time slots to fill. If you attend Element and can help in ANY way with demo, we could use your help.
— Lord willing, we’ll be in construction mode by the end of them month. SO EXCITED!!
— With that in mind, there are a TON of temporary changes coming to our traffic flow. Phase one of construction will effect all of our kids ministry. We are moving a number of kids classrooms, check in and traffic flow so we are asking for your patience. This coming Sunday you will notice some big changes. We are doing our best to provide signs and traffic flow for all the changes.
— That’s gonna be all! Element Church, I love you guys and am SO proud to be a part of this church!
Till the end,
