Bragging on My Boone’s Creek Family: Karate, Sonic, and College Students Frightening Me

In Uncategorized on November 5, 2007 at 8:46 pm

I am privileged to be the pastor of a wonderful family of faith here at Boone’s Creek Baptist Church. I want to take some opportunity to brag on some of the folks here.

First of all, take a look at this incredible display from one of our youth, Jack Podgorski, at ITA Nationals 2007:

A Great Encounter at Sonic

When one of my children and I had a mid-morning snack at Sonic the other day, the waitress recognized me and said, “Aren’t you the preacher at Boone’s Creek?” I told her, “Yes” — praying that I wouldn’t pay for that — and she said how much she enjoyed the Vacation Bible School last July. Her children were still talking about it. They loved the gentle and loving spirit of the folks who worked at VBS. Keep in mind, I had this conversation on October 31st — and the VBS was in July! People remember the impressions we Christians make — so make a Christ-like one!

Some College Students Taking the Initiative

During the fall and spring semesters of college, we have about 30-40 college students who worship with us. For the past year, they normally taking up the fifth, sixth and seventh rows of our middle section in the sanctuary. Yet, I walked in and I didn’t see them in their usual place. They instead were spread out all over the place. I asked Cam, “What’s going on?” He said, “They were challenged to sit in various places so they could mingle with other folks in the church.” Amen!
