Awaken: July 26th

Last night at Awaken we had a great time as always.  We began our worship with Roper and Patrick leading several songs.  After singing some songs we watched a nooma video from Rob Bell.  We watched Sunday 004.  After the video we took some time to discuss some of our thoughts that we had on the video.  We talked a little about why we do what we do.  We talked about the “church” and what the church is.  We shared with each other and raised questions that we had so that we can grow together.  After some discussion we had a time of prayer and one last song.  Come and join us next week at Awaken.  We will be in the loft.  Come as early as 7:00pm and we will begin worship at 8:00pm.  Bring a friend and we will see you soon.

Awaken: July 19th

Last night at Awaken we had a small crowd, but it was still great!  We took the evening to hang out with each other and catch up on what has been going on.  A lot has been happening since we have seen each other last since we did not have Awaken last week.  We shared our prayer concerns and joys.  The music heard last night was streaming from Pandora.  The radio station is centered around Shawn McDonald music.  Come and join us next week at Awaken.  Bring a friend with you and we will see you soon!

Patrick will be at Glen Lake Camp all next week!  Patrick is the co-dean (along with Mel Baggett) for Pilgrimage 2 camp.  Pilgrimage 2 is the name of the week for Senior High campers.  Glen Lake Camp is a Central Texas Conference camp located in Glen Rose, Texas in which students from all of the conference attend every summer.  We still need volunteers for Pilgrimage 2 this summer.  Volunteers arrive at camp on Sunday, July 12th and will be there until Friday morning, July 17th.  If you have a week that you can volunteer at the camp with 200 campers I would love to have you this week!  If you would like to volunteer you can fill out a form here.  Be sure to check the Pilgrimage 2 box.  The camp needs volunteers for other weeks as well, so if this coming week doesn’t work for you and you still want to volunteer you can do that!  Dave Brower will be the co-dean of the last camp of the summer… you may remember Dave from coming to speak with us at Awaken the end of last year.  I think he needs volunteers too!

There is a new link on the right under “Links”.  Click on the link called Jonathan Baggett.  It is an easy was to get to Jon’s carepages page.  On carepages you can see updates on Jonathan.  Jonathan has filled in on drums for us at Awaken several times and attends Awaken often.  Carepages is free, easy to use, and a great tool to stay updated with those we love.  I hope that you will check out this link and continue to use it.

Awaken: July 5th

Tonight at Awaken we had some delicious carrot cake that was made by Carol Howton and it went well with the iced coffee we have been rockin’ lately.  We began our worship with several songs.  We introduced a new song that you will hear a whole lot more of in the future.  The song is called “cannons”, by Phil Wickham (look it up you will like it).  After that we watched “Open”, a nooma video from Rob Bell.  After watching the video we took some time to talk with each other and share some thoughts that we have on the video.  We talked about what it means to be “brutally honest” with God when we pray.  We then closed with a time of prayer and one last song.  It was a great night!  We will not have Awaken next week (July 12th), but we will be back on our normal schedule on July 19th.  So we will see you in a couple of weeks.  Be checking back here at the blog to get prayer concern and celebration updates and all that good stuff.  See you soon!
