There are still a lot of bugs I have to figure out.

Hopefully before too long things will run smoothly.

Please update your info, because this may be the last post ever at this address.

We are all over this.  Seriously, check this out!

Love what Tadd and Pine Ridge are doing.  We have already started conversations with Starbucks and others about having Starbucks at Cinema, but this is the first I have seen of having YOUR OWN BLEND!

Our daughter just went on her first girly outing with her mother, and I think I am in for a long 18 plus years…

We are currently headed to CATALYST!

Please pray for the 10 of us who are going!

Pray for safety. Pray that we would bring it home with us!

best practices (7 of 7)

I cannot for the life of me pick just one final best practice…and there is no way I am prolonging this to 8 or 9 best practices.  Instead of me picking our final best practice, I want to ask YOU what YOUR opinion is (that means none of that “what he said” stuff 🙂 )

You can pick one of the 6 already listed, you can pick one that hasn’t been mentioned at all, or you can pick one of the following:

  • our obsession with reaching those who don’t know Christ
  • we don’t just babysit kids.  A huge chunk of our resources already goes toward children and students. And those at Cinema Church honestly enjoy working hard to share the love of Christ with children
  • students are a vital part of what we do and what we envision doing
  • worship experience will exalt God and lift high His Glory through high energy, engaging, loud music
  • video, multimedia, drama to connect people to the heart of God
  • a definite must….more Apples in our church than in Steve Jobs entire family

I’d also love to know why you feel it is a great practice!

it – Craig Groeschel

“I’d argue that people today aren’t rejecting Christ so much as they’re rejecting the church.  Once, I asked a guy why he didn’t go to church.  He responded without hesitation, ‘Because I’ve already been.’

He came.  It didn’t happen.  So he never returned.”

  • How can we make sure Cinema Church helps change the way people view church?
  • How can we make sure the church isn’t a stumbling block to people finding life in Christ?
  • How can we provide an environment that ensures no one ever attends Cinema Church and claims they won’t be back because “they’ve already been”?

(PS-I am hoping this gets as much of a response as an entry about a logo option.)
