Usually my simple writings try to detail some event or experience I’ve had in the past week or so. This post is somewhat focused on what will be happening the next few days! Not too detailed but with some quick descriptions!
Exciting weekend plans for Cyndi and myself! Friday we will drive to Tallahassee to attend a Good Friday service at City Church Tallahassee. Cyndi has been fasting (Daniel fast) for about 10 days and we both will fast on Friday until the end of the service. Good Friday services are mostly somber and quiet remembrances of Christ’s death on the cross. We’ll end the service with communion – the first food all day! I enjoy these types of services in a selfish way – they help me focus and remember in a personal way why I believe what I believe.
We’re headed to Mexico Beach, Florida after the service – hoping to spend Saturday in the sun! Kayaks will be accompanying us and we’re excited to spend the day on white, sandy beaches on what we believe is the most beautiful stretch of Florida’s Gulf Coast! Hoping our kids will join us for the day as well!
Sunday is Easter! The time of year when Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus! We will be celebrating along with thousands of others the Civic Center in Tallahassee. City Church Tallahassee has rented this venue to share the gospel with as many people as possible at one time on Sunday. The past several years City Church has held Easter services at The Moon – a local nightclub in Tallahassee. The past year was standing room only so the decision was made to move to a larger space! In addition to the band and production team, it will take hundreds of volunteers to have this event – people will serve in our Kid’s program, First Impressions as greeters, parking attendants, information stations, ushers, care team members, etc. It’s going to be an exciting day and I’ll be posting pictures from it soon!
Easter this year has a special meaning to Cyndi and me. I have prayed for years to be allowed by God to be a part of a large movement of His. Tallahassee is experiencing such a movement right now and we believe Easter will be a celebration of that. If you’ve been reading along over the months, you know our journey with City Church is unique. I quit my job 15 months ago so we could be a part of this group! We travel about 400 miles round trip each weekend to help out where we can. I’m thankful for the opportunity this season in life has afforded us. Who knows what will take place after Easter? I’m still looking for employment and am confident God has a plan for us! Anticipation about the future – our future!
