Over the next couple days, I am going to be sharing some of my favorite Main Street memories. There is no way I could write them all, but I just felt compelled to reflect on some of my favorites.
Memories on Main Street Part 1:
- Meeting the staff for my interview and messing up the word “sieve,” thinking it was “salve.”
- Sharing an office with Pastor Bob for my first year.
- Preaching my first sermon at Main Street called “Grandparents: God’s Original Social Security.” The second message was called “Anger: The Warning on My Label.”
- Working in the evenings on the new building. Painting walls, shoveling trash, and scraping cement floors. Such excitement and unity.
- Encircling the old building in prayer and then caravanning to the new building for the first worship service in November 2004.
- Playing drums in the praise band and keyboards for the Easter presentations.
- Writing songs with Phillip.
- The annual staff retreats: Seeing Diana Reis scale a 60 ft. wall, firing tomatoes from a sling shot, eating trail mix, and naming the new building classrooms.
- Seeing 72 people leave for the gulf on an intergenerational mission trip after hurricane Katrina.
- Seeing over 200 people come out for Mission 41001.
- Seeing over 1500 people come to the Great Harvest.
- Seeing people walk on water during the Immersion Easter presentation.I better stop for now, I am getting upset. More memories to come.
