This Week’s Updates – 2/25/16
I hope this finds you well. It’s been a great week so far here! I just continue to be AMAZED by what God is doing in and through this church.
This week I have 4 main things to share:
#1 This Sunday, I’ll be sharing a message called Hoarders looking at a story out of Luke 12! If you call Embrace your home, I can’t encourage you enough to come Sunday. More info.
#2 On Monday March 7th, join us for an evening of discussion and commentary from two of the leading voices in the tension between faith and culture: Gabe Lyons and David Kinnaman. More info.
#3 For the February One Thing, we are partnering with Center of Hope and Valley Outreach to collect new or gently used coats, gloves and other winter gear in all sizes. If you haven’t done so yet… go through your closets! Go to the store. I pray we knock this month’s One Thing out of the park. More info.
#4 We’re always looking for future campus pastors! Know anyone in Sioux City, Fargo, Minneapolis, or Sioux Falls that would make a great campus pastor? Find out more here.
See everyone on Sunday!
Love you Embrace.

I have a few things to mention this week:
#1 If you missed Brad Lomenick’s message this past Sunday, take the 25 minutes to watch it here! Have friends, colleagues, or coworkers that want to grow as leaders? Share it with them.
#2 This coming Sunday, we’re starting our new series called Love is ______. I can’t wait! It’s gonna be a powerful 2 weeks as we talk about what God has to say about love. More info.
#3 So hard to believe a year has went by since we launched our Summit Ave Campus! We are celebrating this Sunday at Summit Ave and we’d love to have you join us! There will be cupcakes, piñatas (need I say more?) and celebration at all 3 of our Summit Ave services!
#4 Are you in a small group? If you’re not, I can’t encourage you enough to at least check one out! Find out more here. We have groups starting up left and right. If you consider Embrace your home, our hope is that you’d be a part of a small group.
That’s what I know. I’ll see everyone this Sunday!

How’s everyone doing so far this week? So far, so good here on this end. One day at a time! It might sound cheesy, but I’m so thankful that regardless of what we’re facing… we don’t face it alone. God is with us.
This Sunday, I am pumped to have Brad Lomenick with us! Brad is one of the best and most connected Christian leaders in the country. If you’re looking for purpose in life or want to grow as a leader, do NOT miss Sunday! This is the perfect Sunday to invite friends or coworkers who are interested in leadership. More info. (Note: This Sunday only, we will not be having our 605 services!)
The following Sunday (Feb 14th) is Valentine’s Day and we’re going to be starting a new message series called Love is _____. If you’d ask 100 people what love is, you’d probably get 100 different answers. For this 2 week message series, we’re gonna talk about what God has to say about love! Praying it’s a powerful 2 weeks! More info.
Pray this find everyone well!
The Lord is good.
P.S. We’ve got some job openings at Embrace! Everything from a video editor, eKids Coordinators, to Campus Pastor positions… know anyone? Spread the word! More info.
