Del Sol Northeast update - 02/10/10

Here's the latest update on Del Sol Northeast:

- We’ve been seeing some good things that God is doing at Del Sol Northeast. I’m especially proud of our volunteers who have really stepped up with tenacity, perseverance, creativity, and commitment. Del Sol Church – both campuses – could not work without such amazing, incredible, wonderful, selfless volunteers who commit so much of their time and heart into making Del Sol Church a community where people are lead into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. To all our volunteers at Del Sol Church – thanks SO much!

- On Sunday we continued a message series called “TXT” by scrutinizing the Bible to see whether or not it is credible and trustworthy. We asked some tough questions, we put the Bible to the test, and we saw that history & science, fulfilled prophecies, and the words of Jesus confirm that the Bible is the most reliable, credible, and trustworthy in all of history. It was exciting to explain why we as Christians put so much trust in the Bible and it was good to be reminded that the Word of God passes all tests with flying colors and will stand above all else, no matter what.

- We also had one of the youth bands from our East campus lead people into worship through music at our Northeast campus. Last week I said that I had never heard them play but I was amazed at how they really worked hard to facilitate a genuine, quality worship experience. A big thanks to our East Campus’ Youth & Young Adults Pastor Troy Sanchez for working so hard with them to help them be excellent lead worshippers.

- This Sunday we’ll finish the “TXT” message series by looking at the Bible as the ultimate love story. We’ll see what love really is according to God’s definition as found in the Bible and we’ll see how Jesus is the greatest example of true, genuine, selfless love.

- It’s been exciting to see first time guests and returning guests each week. The best part is when someone who was a first-timer the previous week returns the following week and brings someone with them. There are several people who have been coming every week since our launch and we’re looking at simple ways to get them connected in service – maybe through helping kids with crafts, greeting people in the parking lot, or handing out a bulletin.

Here's how you can pray this week:

1. Pray for those who will be there this Sunday, that they will truly see and understand the great love of God for them and will respond to that love by committing their lives to Jesus as their Savior and Lord.

2. Pray for our volunteer ministry directors and I as we work together to get more people involved in Serving the World by serving at the NE campus.

3. Ask the Lord to give me wisdom, vision, and creativity for the future as we as a new campus work to find our footing and become established in Northeast El Paso.

Thanks for your prayers - I truly believe they make a big difference.
