The First Sunday

This Sunday, I preach my first sermon at North County. It should be a great day. It'll be great to be preaching regularly again for the first time in a while. Some of our friends are coming down from Thousand Oaks, Long Beach, and other parts of San Diego to enjoy the day with us. One of the true blessings of life in Christ is Christian friendship, is it not?

I've had people ask if I'm nervous. No. 

I am excited to get things underway. The two weeks in the office leading up to the first sermon are like training camp. Sunday is kickoff. North County is a church with enormous potential. Emily and I feel extremely blessed to be able to be some small part of what God plans to do with the church in the future. Worship is at 8:15 and 11. If you or anyone you know is looking for a place to worship Sunday, come on by. You can find us by clicking here.
