What I think about you.....

Here is a what I think about you moment.... There are people in your life that help you along and make you a better person...and Brien Duke is one of those people in my life. Here's what got me thinking about him this week......

I was watching some old videos with Lisa yesterday and we stumbled upon alot of Ethan which is understandable because he is to cute not to video. We also found some older worship times at Discover Point. This was back when we were at the movie theater and you think it's loud now at Parker Road, well we used to turn it all up at the movie theater and gave no thought to hearing loss if you know what I mean. I noticed that Brien had gained a little over the years which makes me happy for obvious reasons. And i thought about how thankful I am have Brien as a lead worshipper at DPC. God has given and moved us over the years and I am thankful for each person that has given into our church through worship or production but Brien is a very special person in my life. It's amazing to look back and see how much God has used Brien at our church. He is a gifted worship leader and has been an answered prayer in my life from the beginning of our friendship.
I am adding a picture of Brien and me. He is a great guy and make sure to tell him on Sunday that he is awesome!!!

Worship + One

Worship + One is a concept that we encourage all members of Discover Point Church to apply.
We decided along time ago to do a few things well and Sunday Morning is our main outreach.

WORSHIP ---- We have put alot of time, energy, and money into our Sunday Morning Environment. We want everyone in Rockdale/Newton Counties to come!!!! We try to be creative, innovative, topical, relevant, biblical, and exciting in our series content. We spend alot of money and time to make it happen through material for Discover Kids, Nursery equipment, Java point coffee bar stuff, lighting, technology, audio/visual, and THE BUILDING ITSELF IS STICKIN' EXPENSIVE.... We do this well. Our Sunday Morning Environment rocks!!!!! The volunteers that make it happen all rock!!!!! God is doing something on Sunday Mornings on Parker Road!!! No doubt about that.
We want to create a place that unchurched people can't wait to come to...and Sunday Moring is it.

+ ONE ---- We also don't want our members to be at church all the time. Pick one other thing to get involved with at Discover Point Church. After + one.... go and coach your kids little league, or get involved in a local book out in the you are in the community let people know either through actions or words (hopefully both) that you are a Christ-follower and that you LOVE Discover Point Church...

Our idea is attend church, serve somewhere and get involved in the community. We can do more good for God being involved than keeping to ourselves inside a little church country club!!@!!!
