Ultimate Fam Jam

Happy Sunday, friends!
One Roof with our whole church family was a-m-a-z-i-n-g yesterday!!! It was the most ultimate fam jam that I've ever been to in my whole life... a taste of Kingdom life to come!

My kids and their friends chilling before the event started.

During the afternoon worship service.

At the afternoon worship service, our church's newest mission was launched, one that will guide us into these next four years! It is simply called... Transform. I love its boldness and how it is God-sized... and especially how it calls us all to be radically generous in compassion! Love it, love it, love it!

GROW: Everyone to grow spiritually; growing in baptisms, Home Churches, volunteers, attendance and personal stories of life transformation.
INVITE: Everyone to connect with neighbours, friends, co-workers, and family; seven new sites to be launched. 
CARE: This is the one I'm most excited about! Everyone engaged in compassionate relationships; invest $1.5 million in local partners and $3.5 million in southern Africa partners for compassionate community transformation; explore new opportunities in compassion and peace in our communities, nation and world!
Now, to actually LIVE IT! I am actually really looking forward to doing this... especially with a church family that is so passionate about following Jesus! Just. So. Cool!

After the worship service, the biggest parking lot potluck unfolded! So. Much. Fun!

The evening was capped off with the most amazing dance party ever! From as old as 80-years-old to as young as 6-months-old, each one danced the night away, Gangnam Style Meeting House version a.k.a. Kingdom Style! ;-)

{Side Note: If you are familiar with the current Gangnam Style craze, you'll want to click on the Kingdom Style link above. I promise you'll get a kick out of it! Aside from this one song, there are nine others... all free to download here... including my personal favourite, Jesus Got Us Falling In Love Again. :-)}

All the kids dancing the night away up on stage with Bruxy Cavey, our teaching pastor, a.k.a. DJ Brux!

Our Site's Lead Pastor, JRah, enjoying the dance party with my boy!

Our church family brings us so much joy!
It is truly a gift to be able to do life with them. My heart overflows with joy just thinking about where God will take us these next four years... to God be the glory great things He has done and will continue to do!

This month of October, I am participating in a blog link up called 31 Day Series. I will be writing about Celebrating JOY! Click on the banner below for 1000+ other topics! 

Compassion is a command, an act of worship, a song of thanks to Him.
Do justice. Love mercy. Walk humbly with God!
