We’re making some changes….

We’re making some changes here at What’s Kicking Chicken!

We’ll be having a whole new look and some great content in the next few weeks….make sure and check back!

Sunday Quick Hits!

What an amazing end to our Transitions series!

I was looking to end this series in a little different way.  And since I usually do most of the talking, I thought it was a great idea to bring someone on stage that could bring the scripture to life.

We all know and love the Norvell family.  They’ve been a part of Crossroads from the very start and I also knew that they have been through their own transitions in life.  So what better way to help us all understand God’s faithfulness than by hearing their story.  Lynn did an amazing job and if you didn’t hear the message then I strongly urge you to take the time to listen to it.

We’ll be looking for most of you back after the last couple of week’s.  Just in case you didn’t know, Crossroads has had an amazing summer.  We’ve seen some really great moves of God in several areas and I believe God is about to really rock our world.

Thanks to all of the volunteers who really made today happen.  In case you didn’t know, this was promotion Sunday for our children’s environments.  The volunteers rocked the house at Crossroads!   We still have lots of opportunities for you to find a place to plug-in.  We’ve got so much planned between now and the end of the year!

Worship today was amazing…..some of the best I can remember!

I’m looking forward to the new series Simple that starts on Sunday, August 1st.  We’ll be putting up the info on the website on Monday and we need you to invite your friends!

Have a great “hot” week!

Transitions

Everything that grows, changes.

Everything that changes goes through transitions.

When I look back at my life, its pretty easy for me to see that I’ve changed.  I’ve changed more than I would like to admit.  Some of it was good and some of it wasn’t so good.

Honestly, all of those changes haven’t been easy.  Some of them were things I expected.  Some of them were things that I never saw coming.  And its the ones that caught me off guard that were the hardest.  But there’s something interesting.  It seems that God has done some of his biggest work during the changes….he did his biggest work during the transitions.

I hope you can join me this Sunday at Crossroads as we conclude our series Transitions.

Making a difference

Crossroads officially started holding services about three and half years ago.  And during these past three years we’ve partnered with people like Habitat for Humanity, the Wilson County Help Center and others.

But later this month and during the month of August, we’re going to be doing something for Brooks House here in Lebanon.  We spent some time with Liz Reese and during our time with her, we asked her what we could do as a church that would help her as she directs the vision for Brooks House.  Her response was a “playground”.

Brooks House provides a place for women and children to stay as they go through their own transition.  By providing a new playground, Crossroads can bring a little bit of normalcy back into the life of a child who is walking through a very difficult time in their own life. 

I’m looking forward to seeing people at Crossroads jump in and make a difference in the lives of people going through a transition.

Hey, I hope to see you this Sunday at Crossroads as we conclude our series Be Rich.

Needless to say, its been a very busy weekend in Lebanon as well as around much of Middle Tennessee.

Well now I’m back!
