WOW! The new reflect book and DVD that we are doing is amazing. I LOVE IT WHEN the whole church hooks up together and is on the same page. Last night( I lead a middle school girls small group) and we watched the video and did the small group questions and student questions. And there was total silence when the teaching was going on. Everyone was so focused and interested! Then after that, I had about 10 hands go up with more questions, that lead into a great discussion on the Sabbath! Its was really good and I was jsut amazed and how they responded. My hat off, to everyone one at Seacoast that helped out with the reflect project!! I know that it will really affect my small group and I can see it doing that for many others!

hey hey hey !!!

Wow has this been a busy and exciting past couple of weeks!!! WOW i am going to have to do some major backtrack... AN ADVENTURE, is to say my (and our ) Lives!!!

(and this blog will be written while listening to High School Musical!)

Well, we had the chance to go to Greenville (the 1st time) and put on a Nitro and G-swell service and it was amazing!!! Sarah lead worhsip (i BGVed) Then we both did a skit and Curt gave the message. It was awesome!! Ross is doing a great job there!!! I cant wait to go back......maybe soon....

WOW! i am going to have to say that Seacoast did a great job this Easter!!! I heard that over 14,000 people came!! WOW that is incredible to be a part of something so big! And to be able to share Christ with them is such a blessing (well Pastor Greg did most of the teaching , way to go!!! ) But I was a busy busy bee!! (and loving every minute of it!) Most of my services were spent with kidscoast playing the most beloved Character Agnes. I nerdy kidstuff clubber with great friends!

Then, during the 11:15 service at Unflitered, we did the Lifehouse Everything Skit. And I think it went great! Not only did I have a GREAT team(Eric, Sarah, Emily, Lindsey, Darrell, and Logan) that preformed it with me, the music was great too. The skit, itself, was/is powerful but when we did it, I felt that this is what people struggle with. It was so moving that during one of the practices, when everyone was beating and throwing me around, for a moment I felt that girl. It brought tears to my eyes. Sin is not only in your mind, with thoughts, but is real too. I was so honored to play the part and maybe touch some one's life, that could ultimately lead that person to have a better relationship with Jesus.

Ps. There is a picture of the skit on Pastor Geoff's Blog!!! Woot!

After a whirl wind week and weekend.... day off.. then back into it!! A Mission trip to Greenville.(YEAH!!! AGAIN!!) It was chance to do some local outreach there and bless the community. Sarah, Mel and I each took a girl from our small group and headed that way. Some of the highlights of the trip were; visiting the foster home, BOB from the soup kitchen (see pic), raps(made up!!), movies, fun, Piedmont Women's Center, Boys and Girls Club, bad map directions, skit and song, pianos!!!, Laura from the soup kitchen!, talents, chips and cookies, the one-word-make-up-the-story-car-game(shout out to BOBO!!), and THE BEST ICE CREAM EVER! (Gelato?)

This trip not only blessed the people around us but also help grow the girls we took too. All of them were wonderful and humble and had a great servants heart. It overall was a a great experience.

Above are some pics from past events!!!

Biatholion Fun!

Sorry it has taken us so long to get a post up...
On March 1st Velocity did a Biathlon, we kayaked 6 miles and ran 4 miles.
Do you not know that in a race all the runners run but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. 1 Corinthians 9:24-25

Dear Lord,
You have called me to run the race of life. You created me for a purpose.
I want to run the race in such a way as to get the prize. I know that will mean going into strict training, and I commit myself, here and now, to take my life mission seriously. Oylmpic athletes don't sleep late, eat whatever they feel like and lounge around watcing television. They wake up each day with a plan. They go about their daily routine with vigor. They exercise, eat right, and stay on task. All of that for what? A gold medal and cereal endorsement? Lord, you have called me to pursue a heavenly prize! You have crown waiting for me that I will proudly wear for all eternity. It's time I got into strict training. Lord, with you as my personal trainer, I am ready to get serious. Refresh me, renew me and strengthen me for a new day tomorrow. I look forward to each new day to experience you.
In that blessed name of Jesus I ask. Amen

We have Arrived.... welcome to bloggin, velocity style!

So... we have been looking at certain blogs and noticed its just the cool thing to do.
Well as Velocity, we have many thoughts on church, people, places and life.
At first we pondered... are we cool enough for this thing called Blogging????
And I quote from Brittany Anderson, "I believe we are, and have profound things to say."
So... I expect this blog to thrill you, make you happy, make you laugh, make you cry, and make you hungry... but most of all you get to join us on this incredible adventure called Velocity (crowd cheers).
