Hi Team!

How's your week going?

I apologize for the late email. This has been a CRAZY week for me. Be Rich is an AMAZING and amazingly busy time of year for me. It's so exciting to see so many people generously respond to the "Do More. Give More" challenge. Speaking of Be Rich, OCC boxes can be returned this week and next week. This week launches the challenge of Do More. Give More. TIME. You can sign up for a service opportunity starting Sunday. I'd love to find a time when we could all serve together. Let's talk about this on Sunday.

For those of you that weren't here last week, we had a first in the crawlers class. One of our little ones threw up. Deb was definitely the hero of the day as she was on the receiving end. Deb, thank you for being awesome and for handling that situation so well. In fact, it was incredible to watch as all of you jumped in and quickly assisted. Hoping this was a first and last :-).

This week we will continue to share our next steps in growing in our relationship with Christ. If you haven't shared yours with us yet, we would love to hear from you. As an update on one of my steps, I am moving forward with the mission trip to East Asia in January. I couldn't be more excited and nervous all at the same time.

I hope you have a great weekend. See you on Sunday!


Operation Christmas Child

Check out this video from one of our Partner Churches -- Southside Church. When they launched the Be Rich campaign and promoted Operation Christmas Child, someone came forward and the end of the service to tell her story of how she received a shoebox as a child. They asked her to stick around for their next two services and share her store with the church. Here is her story....

How can we be praying for you?
