Palm Sunday Recap

Palm Sunday Recap

Awesome day yesterday! In the AM we led worship at Parkwood Baptist Church. Pastor Jeff Long and I have had a ton of mutual friends over the years, but it wasn’t until about 2 weeks ago that we finally met. He’s an awesome man of God doing a great work at Parkwood. We’re privilege to be able to help them out for a few Sundays in the near future as they are in the search process for a worship pastor.

We led with their existing praise band and they did a phenomenal job reading and following me.

We finished up the day at Ridge Church last night as they concluded their Joe Jacobson series. It was a great night. They announced that they will be partnering with Kinetic Church, near Concord Mills, for Easter Sunday morning.

Kinetic has a crazy story. This past week, they had one of their storage trailers stolen containing over half of their Sunday morning gear–children’s ministry stuff–hospitality stuff–worship center stuff. All of it. Gone. In a second. You can check out Dave Milam’s video blog post on exactly what went down and how they’re coping. In the midst of all of that, God connected them with Ridge Church to partner with for Easter Sunday. Ridge will bring the gear they need and together they will combine forces to lift up the name of Jesus in north Charlotte. Pretty cool story. And pretty cool example of the church being the church–that it’s not about the name on the marquee or the logo–it’s about the name of Jesus. And it’s about the body of Christ functioning like the body of Christ.
