Weekend Update


This weekend we launched our new series: Life Palette. God desires to paint a masterpiece on the canvas of our lives! It was great to have artist Phil Starke painting in the service as we talked about the “One” value that Jesus gives us as our primary focus. Phil began a painting this weekend that he will be finishing over the next four weekends as I speak and he will continue to talk about how it is a picture of our lives.

I have heard from many of you already about how the Lord has begun to speak to you as we begin Life Palette – let’s pray that this is a series that completely transforms us all to be more like Jesus as His followers and for those who are considering following Him to take the next step.

I wish you could all hear all the stories of changed lives that I hear. This weekend I talked with a couple of different men who God is radically changing their lives. As people share these incredible stories of transformation and thank me I know what they are saying. They are thanking me for all the ministry that YOU do Alive church and for the impact you all are having on their lives and how you are allowing God to use you as His followers. I am so honored to be your pastor and to serve with you in “leading people who are far from God to be followers of Jesus.”

I hope you will carry your value scale with you this week and prayerfully ask God to guide you in your life as to whether or not you are “seeking” His kingdom first. Follow His lead. If you were not able to get a value scale at one of our weekend services take a moment and Google one and print it to carry with you this week.

We kicked off the weekend with an art event designed to unite artist in the Tucson area. There were several professional artists painting and demonstrating for the community of artist who joined us. A big thanks to all of you who helped put this event together especially the Girlfriends leadership team and to the artists who painted. It was a little cool but overall a nice day and a big success!

How about the set for the new series? Props to Doug and team – you guys are awesome!

Oh and by the way – did you hear who won the big softball game between Continental Ranch campus and Oro Valley campus? Yep – we did! Way to go Alive!!!
