Sunday Life Pointe Talk Soup: Mother’s Day Edition

By Marcela Johnson

Well Phil is confined to his duties at Turkey Point again so it has fallen to his better half to keep his blog going. So, here it goes…

Today’s service rocked! Life Pointe really knows how to celebrate. Both services were full of enthusiastic people joining us in honoring women.

The lobby was decorated with roses in honor of “Momma’s Day”…Ā  and there’s no other way to a woman’s heart (besides God of course) but through chocolate… and there was plenty of it! Women who attended Life Pointe today were greeted with chocolate fountains where they could dip strawberries, bananas, apples, oranges, marshmallows, and other yummy treats. The cafe section was equally appealing with a variety of bagels and different flavors of cream cheese in addition to Ruby Red grapefruit juice and the traditional Starbuck’s coffee. In addition, all women were serenaded with a live band in the lobby. What a day!

Bill and his band “The Messengers” did a great job leading in today’s service with the following songs:

1) It’s All For You- was upbeat and got the crowd going.
2) Psalm 1:15- was catchy and people were bopping to the beat.
3) Grace Like Rain- was sentimental but turned rock-ish.
4) Forever- was very lively and got people moving.
5) Word of God- was a slow tempo song, people were worshipping in the spirit as they sang.

The biggest shocker of all today was Pastor Travis. He wowed the ladies by dressing up all “spiffy” in a gray suit and tie. What a treat!

The message to today’s service was “Whose Side Is God On Anyway?” which continues with the Fortune Cookie series. Basically the idea is that God is on our side if we allow Him to come into our lives and take over. Even if we don’t accept His salvation, God is always calling us to Him. If we are ashamed of God now, He will be ashamed of us in Heaven. So, don’t tick off “the guy upstairs”… He is trying to help! šŸ™‚

After service, the ladies were spoiled further with a gift from Life Pointe: either a mug with kisses or a book with a sachet of chocolate. Ode to all mothers… IT’S YOUR DAY!

For another perspective on Sunday morning at Life Pointe, be sure to try some Salad.

  1. Marcella,
    You did a wonderful job filling-in for the absent (but hard-at-work) ‘P’ To The ‘J’. I think that you should start-up your own blog and at least post the ‘Sunday Soup’ every week. Phil can call his Sunday blogs ‘The Sandwich’. Have a great ‘Ladies’ Day’ !

    Marcela you did an outstanding job as always. You can talk the soup any time. šŸ™‚

    Happy Birthday, Phillip! (Monday, May 12)

    You were born on a Monday, the day after Mother’s Day. Did you know that? I thought that was an interesting little fact this year.

    Have a wonderful day!

  5. Happy Birthday To The P.J. ! You were born 9 days after my brother.
