  • Gary:

    I’m impressed and blessed by this power point. Nicely done. ….curious, about how much time does it take to create one of these?

    • Thanks Gary,

      Your kind support is truly encouraging.

      Like any Sunday meeting, I get a week to be ready. I have a gathering phase (thoughts, scriptures, pictures, videos) and then an organizing phase.

      These PowerPoints are for the bigger kids to adult category. Prior to this, Harold does the little kids with prizes, name tags, felt board bible stories, animated videos, crafts and take home papers. The crafts (and snacks) are a big draw.

      The people are encouraged to come and go as they please. We say, “When you need to go, just wave so we know you’re not mad.” There is a lot of waving, coming and going.

      This particular PowerPoint had a blessed anointing. At the end we asked everyone just to call out the name of Jesus two or three times. When we did, both Harold and I felt His presence. We really feel like we are standing on holy ground in that little pavilion.

  • Gary:

    So great… so great…
