Vision Sunday 2014 is in the books! We had a fantastic day – here’s a few highlights:
*New clothes! We unveiled some new Crosspoint t-shirts and hoodies - the band and staff were all wearing them, and it looks like a bunch of you went home wearing them, too. Awesome! You’re our best form of advertising when you walk around town wearing CP swag. Keep it up!
*New stage design! Our stage was re-designed to reflect our new values icons (we’ll be unpacking those for the next 8 weeks!) - AJ Guptill and Stephen Brewer made these things! Crazy. Looked awesome.
*Glory hankies! We brought back the classic church hanky idea – sports teams have been using them as playoff towels, so we’re reclaiming the idea! These have our new vision printed on them, and were hidden under the seats until it was time to wave ‘em around! What’s even better is that you actually waved them all throughout service! Love it. Bring them back to use them again, right?!
*Awesome worship + new songs + Future/Past movie – The band was off the charts awesome – as usual – and introduced a couple of new tunes that you immediately grabbed hold of and began singing along with immediately! If you missed them and are too impatient to wait for us to post the service online, here’s “I Believe” and “Future/Past” on Youtube. We threw in a slideshow/video clip of the history of our church during the Future/Past instrumental. It was awesome. We’ll post in online soon, but wow. One of the highlights of the day for me.
*Multi-Cam Recording! We started our new multi-camera recording this week. We had a bunch of cameras set up all through the sanctuary that captured the whole morning, and will then be edited together and posted online – music/sermon/video – everything! Thanks to all of our new volunteers who stuck around for both services to pull this off! Watch for it to be posted within the next day or so.
*…and obviously, OUR VISION! Here it is: “Making Jesus famous for the good of the city and the hope of the world.” Bam. Glorifying God, loving our neighbours, and taking his name to the ends of the earth: that’s why we exist. If you want to hear more, you’ll have to watch the sermon, as I unpacked our new statement line by line.
So there you have it – Vision Sunday 2014. It was a huge/exciting/energetic day! Thanks for coming, thanks for praying, thanks for inviting. Great days ahead for Crosspoint Church!!
