Del Sol Northeast update - 02/24/2010

Here's the latest update on Del Sol Northeast:

- Two weeks ago we finished up our message series called “TXT”, where we looked at the Bible and saw what it took for us to have it, why it’s reliable and trustworthy, and how it is the ultimate love story. We then started up a GrowGroup on Tuesday nights where we’re looking at the Bible, specifically Philippians, to see what God would say to us as we do life together and as we study His Word. It’s been awhile since I’ve led a Bible study that’s not topical but simply going through a book of the Bible, so I’m especially excited about this group.

- Last Sunday we started a message series called “aka God”, where we’re looking at a few of the Old Testament names of God to see what they mean and how they apply to our lives today. Last week se looked at the name Jehovah Rohi (row-hee) and saw that God is our loving Good Shepherd; this coming Sunday we’ll look at Jehovah Tsidkenu (sid-keh-noo) which means God is our righteousness. I’ll be calling the believers there to return to living righteously and the non-believers to begin a righteous relationship with God through Jesus Christ.

- We’ve been meeting weekly for a month now and in this time, we’ve really been finding out who we are as a campus, finding out what works and what doesn’t, what our strengths and weaknesses are. I’m constantly reminding our team that Jesus said He would build His church so He surely won’t leave us hanging; we just need to be faithful and obedient workers.

- One of our biggest challenges has been that we don’t have a worship leader. I’m extremely grateful to the different bands from our East campus who have been coming on different Sundays to lead us in worship through music – but we are expectantly waiting on God and trusting Him in hope that He will soon raise someone up to lead our band and tech teams. Please be praying about this.

Here's how you can pray this week:

1. Ask the Lord to raise up whoever He has in mind to be our worship leader. While we work on his timetable, it would be a great relief if this happened sooner rather than later. =)

2. Ask the Lord to give my leaders and me wisdom, vision, and creativity as seek to Love God, Love People, and Serve the World in Northeast El Paso.

3. Ask the Lord to put it on the hearts of the Christians from Northeast El Paso who attend Del Sol NE to be proactive and intentional in inviting their friends, neighbors, and coworkers to Del Sol NE.

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