So this is what BLOGGING is...

So you know it's bad and that you haven't blogged for a while when you have to LOGIN to your Blog page - and to make matters worse - you forget your password!!

Things are going well here - trying to recup from the big Maricopa Trick-or-Treat last Friday PM! Well...we had over 8000+ that came out to Maricopa Trick-or-Treat this year! That's approximately 25% of Maricopa's Population! What an INCREDIBLE night! God's name was most definitely made more famous that night! TY to everyone who made this event so successful, we are already dreaming about next year!
The family is doing well - Isaac won 3rd place in the Costume Contest this year as an OLD MAN - in which he designed his own attire for the evening! Caleb went as a KC Chief Football Player (Larry Johnson) but we kept him away from the anything or anyone that he could 'SPIT' on! Charis was a PRECIOUS little KC Chief Cheerleader! Tom & Wanda (Ginger's Folks) were able to make it in town for a week or so as well! Ginger is HANGING IN THERE - please keep her in your prayers - she has now passed (drum roll please) - 14 KIDNEY STONES in the last 3 WEEKS! Yes - she is WONDER WOMAN!!


Started our New Series a couple weeks ago - JUICY FRUIT! This series will take us through the end of the year!

In Galatians 5:22-25, Paul defines what a Spirit-Filled, Spirit-Led & Spirit-Driven Life looks like… “But when the Holy Spirit controls our lives, He will produce this kind of Fruit in us: Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-Control. Here there is no conflict with the law. Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to his cross and crucified them there. If we are living now by the Holy Spirit, let us follow the Holy Spirit's leading in every part of our lives.” The Fruit of the Spirit is a FULL MEAL DEAL! WHEN the Spirit Controls our lives then our lives exhibit these GREAT qualities! Saying that, if the Spirit DOES NOT Control our lives, then our lives DO NOT exhibit these qualities! It’s ALL or NOTHING!

Come out and hang with us sometime! We also launched a THIRD SERVICE (8:30A / 10:00A / 11:30A)!!
