$1.89, one hour and 14 days

This Sunday, November 3, is shaping up to be one of my favorite Sundays of all time.  Here’s why.

We are throwing a Baby Shower for Birmingham.  During both of our services we are asking everyone to bring a gift for an infant or their parents.  The gifts will be distributed through two of our ministry partners Sav-A-Life and the Forgotten Initiative.  

The gifts that are most needed are diapers, wipes and formula.  Gifts of all sizes are welcome.  I checked at Target and a 72 wipe tub of baby wipes is only $1.89.  That’s a small gift but when combined with the generosity of all of us it can make a huge difference.  So bring a gift and help us bless babies in Birmingham.

We get to sleep an extra hour.  This Sunday Daylight Savings Time ends and we fall back.  Don’t forget to set your clocks back and for those who forget – don’t worry we will have plenty of coffee and doughnuts when you show up an hour early!

Sunday morning I will be sharing a little bit about an awesome Student Ministry event that is taking place in just 14 days.  The EXCHANGE WEEKEND is an opportunity for our Middle and High School students to exchange an ordinary weekend for something extraordinary – a weekend of fun, friends and faith.  Register and encourage a student you know to register at EXCHANGE.

And finally this Sunday we are continuing to move toward the life that is truly life as we learn to be generous.  We will be talking about moving toward freedom in the message and in our groups.  If you haven’t picked up a generosity devotional copies are available for $5 in Harvest Books and Gifts.

A baby shower, an extra hour of sleep, the anticipation of an EXCHANGE WEEKEND and the opportunity to be generous all add up to an amazing Sunday that you don’t want to miss.  Join us and invite a friend as we learn and share a better way to live.
