There are two types of people in the world – those who love a party and those who just couldn’t be bothered! Well maybe in reality it’s more of a spectrum – where do you fit?
Personally, sadly, I reckon I tend more towards the couldn’t be bothered end of the spectrum. My own birthday is something I find it hard to really get very excited about – another year older, maybe wiser, definitely fatter! BUT EVEN I GET EXCITED WHEN I KNOW CELEBRATION SUNDAY IS COMING UP.
The birthday of my church is something I really want to celebrate – to praise God for the way that he has been at work among us – shaping us, moulding us, strengthening us, renewing us, maturing us to be more like Jesus. It’s great to be able to look back on the year just gone and bear witness together to all that God in his grace has achieved in us and through us. That’s what celebration Sunday is all about – SEE YOU THERE!!!
I’m not sure if I will be able to sleep tonight with all the anticipated excitement!!!
Someone (non-staff) needs to post a blog thanking the staff for organising a wonderful day last Sunday. It was a huge day to organise but was so well done and so encouraging at so many levels. Be sure to thank the organisers and let them know what you found great about the day.
I loved seeing people who hadn’t been at church for a while come and hang around for lunch so we could really reconnect with them.
The excitement is well and truly building, once again, for Celebration Sunday!! It really is right up there with Christmas!!
I can’t wait to spend the day hanging out with my church family, chatting and eating food 🙂 What’s even better is that we will spend the day together rejoicing and giving all our praises to our wonderful God who has given us all that we will ever need in Jesus…thanking Him for all that He’s been doing in us and through us as a church…it’s gonna be CHAWESOME!
Bring it on! I CAN’T WAIT!!!!
Thanks in advance to everyone who put so much time and effort in to organising such a special and amazing day!
