Weekend Wrap Up


I will be continuing the "Just Say It" series with another post in the next few days, God willing.  Today I just wanted to do more re-capping from the weekend.  If you  haven't gone back and read all the posts from this weekend, I encourage you to do so especially to see the announcement regarding this: 



and much more! 

This is our new church logo and will go on all of our new marketing in preparation and after our launch on January 30th.  Just wanted to share that!    We are one excited bunch.    A little over 90 days and it will be reality.

Celebration church is a place to BELONG, where people in the Tampa Bay area can discover how amazing it is to BELIEVE in Jesus, and BECOME all they are destined to be.

In upcoming days here I will share our core values and more. 


My kiddos last night at Holy Roller Night!  They aren't just THE most beautiful kids in the world, they are the most fun too. 

   Last night was our  "Holy Roller Night" that we've been doing for several years now which is a grand party at Town and Country Skateworld.  We rent the whole place out and have a great costume party/skate night.  Most of the music is 70's and 80's and we have an AMAZING time.  Last night we had a terrific crowd with many first time guests. 

 I skated almost the entire time as I usually do.  I am a true child of the 70's, teen of the 80's and rollerskating was a huge part of my life.  I still love doing it with my own kids.  We had a blast.   Larry even dedicated one of "our songs" to me last night..."Still the One" by Orleans.  :)  I am so blessed by his love.

After the skate night we had "Trunk or Treat" in the parking lot.  Lots of cards were decorated with the trunks overflowing with candy and the kids went to each trunk to fill up their bags.  It was awesome as usual.  The Riveras won for the best trunk.  They had a beach theme.   


Jordan and Savanna ~ they had a blast putting their costumes together.

  It's going to be an extremely full week as I'm getting ready to take my ladies on a a retreat in Sarasota  this weekend, (Thurs/Fri/Sat) and have a ton...and I do mean a ton of appointments scheduled this week.  It's all crammed in Monday - Wednesday.  In addition, Teeb and I are going on a special date tonight after work, and we are celebrating Dustin's birthday tomorrow night, with church following on Wednesday.  Somehow (GOD'S GRACE!) it will all get done before I leave Thursday.

I love life!

PD, I love the New Name and Logo, congrats and I know that God is going to do some (more) awesome things for the Ministry. Like I've said before, if I wasnt a Pastor (of a Church) I would be a member at now, "Celebration Church", lol but not so lol.

I love the "Trunk or Treat" idea, that sounds like lots of fun!

Love you Much, Melissa

My heart is jumping up and down with joy at what God is doing in and through you and the body of Christ! A similar situation is happening in our body up north. God is moving, bring lost and searching in and our church is literally busting at the seams! You are in my prayers! GO CELEBRATION CHURCH! and GO GOD!!!
