Easter Sunday Recap

WOW, WOW, WOW, what a day to say the least! Easter is always one of those days where you anticipate God moving in a strong way, but yesterday at Covenant was another level. And for me it wasn’t as much the fact that we packed out our auditorium, it wasn’t as much the fact that we had amazing worship (which we did) it wasn’t even the fact that we had TONS of ViP’s. I think for me the reason why yesterday was so special was because I truly felt Gods presence and favor in our gathering. I love knowing that you are in the presence of Christ, there is nothing like it. I live for that stuff. If you couldn’t make it out yesterday, here are some highlights for you.

-We opened up our worship experience by celebrating the nearly 30 people who the week before decided to take the next step in obedience by being baptized.
-We nearly broke 400 in our attendance!
-Our Volunteers (as always) did a KILLER JOB making people feel honored. Extra props to our Ushers and Parking Lot Crew for great people flow. We really do have world class volunteers led by our Volunteer Director Jamie Miller. If you are interested in volunteering stop by the White Tent after the Worship Experience for some details.
-We began week one of our new series entitled, “Betterthanville”. I am really excited about this series. I’ve been looking forward to preaching through it for about 4 months now. We are talking about the fact that today, Church has become more of a museum for the saints rather than a hospital for the broken.
We saw over 30 people make first time decisions to give their lives to Jesus! Whoo Hoo!
-Our cKids director Josie Semo and her volunteers set up an amazing experience for our children. Big bouncy house, mini golf, and of course creative new ways to talk about Jesus. Awesome.
-I also was informed that our Baby Bug Volunteers set a record too! Changing 26 diapers in one day! Way to go guys! Changing the culture just took on a whole new meaning!
-The atmosphere in our church right now is absolutely electric. I don’t know that i’ve ever been around a community of people who have more expectancy over what God is going to do. I cannot wait for this Sunday!
