Making Room–I love Roots

So I’m perusing the Facebooks this morning and I see a picture of our youth group, Roots.  Nothing particularly unusual about the picture. It’s a picture of a couple of great guys, Rocky Hedrick and Connor Phillips leading worship.  Next to that you see the students and leaders worshipping.  Underneath that, there is some sort of game, I suppose.  It looks like Chase Burnett is doing some kind of dance.  (I know I said picture  singular, but it’s one of those cool Instagram things with multiple pictures together in one. Anyway…)

Something struck me. It hit me how blessed we are by Chris Martin and his team.  We are blessed to have great kids.  It is a privilege that we have to love and serve them.  God has tremendously blessed us.  I started tearing up.  I feel completely overwhelmed by what God has done and is doing here at The Grove Church.  I hope that when you think about what has happened over the last two years that you feel the same way.  You don’t have to tear up, I don’t guess.  I’m weird like that.  I do hope that you take some time though to think about how great it is that over the last two years you have been able to be a part of a church that has been able to love and serve hundreds of people.

As we move into this new season, I can only imagine what God has for us next.  How many youth will we be able to love and serve? How many kids? How many students? Families?  A bigger room is nice. Lobbies are nice. So are parking lots.  But I see the faces, the faces of people who need God, who need fellowship and encouragement. We are going to be able to make room for people who need God. I feel privileged to be a part of that and hope you do too.
