Top of Mind Monday!

It's January 9, 2023! Here's what's running through my brain as we start another week on mission at CCC!

Tinley's Birthday! Our little Tinley turns 11 today! It doesn't seem possible! We're grateful for how she reflects God to us, and we're excited to celebrate with her today.

Construction begins! Tomorrow morning, work begins on our space! Just a reminder that we need to be flexible and respectful as we navigate this together.

New groups starting! Everyone heard from Josiah and Melissa Downey about their new group this past Sunday. During the Gathering, one guy was convicted that he had committed to replicate his discipleship group and hadn't done it - he and a couple other guys start Tuesday. There's a college and career game night at the church Thursday. I love it! These new groups are not only opportunities for people to take a next step on their journey with Jesus, but also signs of life in the church!

I can't quit thinking about #BeABuffalo. Kenny's illustration about how cows and buffalo respond differently to storms really stuck with me! In case you missed it, here's a clip:

Cast all your cares on him, because he cares about you. Peter reminds us in 1 Peter 5:7 that this is an act of humility, but more than that, it's essential for us to live lives that are healthy and flourishing for the kingdom. We aren't helpful to ourselves or anyone else when we put too much on our own shoulders, take responsibility for things we shouldn't, or simply hold on to stuff. What's bothering you? Who is your heart concerned for? What's stressing you out? Give everyone and everything to God. Go ahead. Right now. Give it over! You can cast ALL your cares on him because he cares for you. He's got everything on your plate this Monday.
