Wii Series

Wii Series

This Sunday in GenesisKIDS we’re starting a new series entitled Wii. We’ll be talking about how kids can connect to God anywhere. Much like the wireless games of today, like the Wii, you can surf the internet and download games via the wireless web. You can even play with controllers that are not teathered by some stinking wires. Pretty stinking cool!

Not only will we be learning about the importance of connecting to God wherever we are, we’re going to have a ton of fun doing it. We’ll have the Wii set up on our big screen for the next three weeks, and I look forward to schooling some kids on WiiTennis. I see a lot of loves in their future!

This is a post from

When you are doing ministry, try to remember:

  • What you do is a result of who you are in Christ.
  • What you do doesn’t define who you are.
  • Don’t confuse the “who” with the “do.”

You are not successful because:

  • Your kids’ ministry grew 10% this year.
  • Three people got saved last week.
  • Your budget increased by 5%.
  • The parents of your student ministry like you.
  • Your church is bigger this year than this time last year.

You are successful because of who you are in Christ. You please God by obeying him, not performing up to your personal expectations.

Are you doing ministry to get worth, feel successful or to find your identity? Or are you doing ministry to please, to resemble, to delight in Christ and bring people to Him?

Sunday Wrap-Up

Today we closed out “Cards”, the two week series on gratitude. We discussed how a grateful heart is a generous heart. (You can watch the talk by clicking here.) I know as I prepared for this, the Lord challenged me on how to best use the time, talents, and treasures He’s entrusted to me. Jared and Lance did an acoustic set for worship, and it was awesome! That Isaiah song melts my heart every time.

In GenesisKIDS Sylvette really stepped up during my absence and took the lead in the elementary environment. You’re awesome girl! (Looking forward to some slamming spainish food tonight!) A solid crew of folks showed up early to make sure the set-up went smoothly: Sylvia, Kyle, Amber, Maria, Sylvette, Maggie, Derrick & Teresa. Thanks so much! You guys make me smile every week when you come walking in ready to get the GenesisKIDS environment ready.

Pastor Brian will be back next week. He’ll be starting a new series entitled “WiFi”, and will discuss the importance of staying connected to God anytime and anywhere. I know we’re all looking forward to him being in the experiences with us and hearing his dynamic teaching!

I’ve got SO many reasons to be thankful.
