I’ve been a part of Cedar Creek Church for nearly fifteen years, and in that time I’ve experienced some amazing worship and celebration services. But, our annual church-wide Thanksgiving night of worship under the big top at our Ridge campus has to be one of the best I’ve ever experienced. I’m not sure if it was the eighteen brave souls who were willing to be dunked for Jesus in 37o weather, the awesome music and singing, seeing families sharing the Lord’s supper together or just the nostalgia of being in the same tent that we gathered in eleven years ago to celebrate the “Living a Legacy” campaign; but whatever it was, there was definitively the powerful presence of Jesus there. As one Cedar Creeker put it, “I don’t know that I’ve personally ever felt the presence of the Holy Spirit in my life and in a worship experience more distinctly than I did tonight.”
A great big “thank you” to our staff and volunteers who worked tirelessly to make this special night happen, the Ridge campus folks who were not only great host, but who gave up their seats to make room for the overflow crowd and to those of you who drove from our West and Banks Mill campuses to be a part of this special night. As we often sing…greater things are yet to come and greater things are still to be done in this city! I’m loving being on this great adventure with all of you.
Have a great Thanksgiving!
