As I sat down to write something about those milestone numbers I had an expectation – I felt I needed to write something exceptionally great. I felt like my writing needed to reflect the weight of those monumental numbers. I started writing several times and nothing seemed good enough. Everything I wrote fell short.

Then, I realized that no matter what words I put down on the paper, they would never measure up to what God has done through the people at Pulpit Rock that simply want to love their neighbors.

Those numbers are incredibly overwhelming to me. Never in my wildest dreams did I see Pulpit Rock reaching these milestones (not because I don’t think you’re awesome, you are some of the most awesome people I have ever met), but because those numbers seem like such a stretch – they seem too big.

Those numbers ARE too big. They are too big for us alone. Those are God sized numbers.

Those are numbers created by people like you listening to your hearts. Listening and following where God is leading you. Learning to be the hands and feet of Jesus right here in Colorado Springs. You have learned what it feels like to step in and simply say YES when God puts something on your heart.

I feel so incredibly blessed to be serving alongside all of you and would love to celebrate with you.

Please join me after second service (around 11:45 AM) for a celebration lunch on March 15th. We’ll meet in the Humblewood Workshop in Room 115 at Pulpit Rock Church. I will order pizza and maybe a cake and we can hang out and just enjoy some fellowship.

If you’re able, please bring one of the following items as your “ticket” for the lunch:

  • Twin sheets
  • Twin bedding sets
  • Twin size comforters
  • Pillows
  • Diapers and wipes

I’m hoping to get a good supply of these items built up so we are ready to respond to CarePortal requests as soon as they come through.

Looking forward to seeing you all there!

Your kids know what matters to you.

Your children you are around are always watching and listening to you. They see your daily routines and the things your heart focuses on. They know what matters to you even if you don’t talk about it. If you want to teach your children compassion, the best thing you can do is model it for them.

Loving Those Whom Jesus Loves

2019 was an amazing year for Pulpit Rock and our CarePortal and Love Your Neighbor teams! Here’s a quick recap with some stats to celebrate the impact we are having on our community.

Introducing … Humblewood Workshop

The Love Your Neighbor team was recently blessed with a large donation of woodworking equipment and tools – enough to set up a complete workshop! We now have a workshop at Pulpit Rock to build bunk beds for kids, nightstands for families starting over, and anything else we can think of to love our neighbors here in Colorado Springs.
