Looking Back at Last Weekend

We had an amazing weekend at The Connection Church. There was an incredible lightning storm, which caused internet issues that affected streaming our sermon to the San Marcos campus, but our team stepped up and did whatever it takes to make it happen.

I was so impressed with our Street Team putting out all the directional signs in the rain and our parking team was in full effect with umbrellas We still had a lot of VIP first-time guests! This weekend, our Creative Team presented an incredible song “Believer” from Imagine Dragons complete with neon trash cans, done stomp-style.

Bobby brought a message called “I’m not Salty, I’m Seasoned” from the book of Job about how to deal with suffering and pain. Watch it on our app if you missed it.

Looking Ahead to This Weekend

Looking ahead to this weekend, the Buda Community Easter Egg-stravaganza Easter Egg Hunt is happening at the Buda Sportsplex. We’re supplying a ton of candy and the parking team, and having our own booth where we can meet people, along with the Easter Bunny, from 8am to Noon. Of course, you get a cool Better Together t-shirt when you sign up to help.

The weather is showing about a 90% chance of rain, so it might get rained out, and we’ll get you the word on that if the City of Buda cancels.

And then on Sunday, so much is happening. We’re continuing the message series in the books of poetry, we’re calling Playlist, the soundtrack of your life. We’re leveraging some modern hit songs and talking about Song of Solomon, or Song of Songs, which is all about love, romance, and intimacy, and we’ll be bringing a love song to the service. There is also a focus on God’s love shown to us most clearly through the cross, and we’ll be offering communion in all of our services as a way to prepare for Easter. Plus, we’re celebrating life-change through baptism at all of our services.

This Sunday, we’ll be bringing our Easter Offering! The Easter Offering goes to support our mission work in Guatemala and right here in our own community. The idea is to give over and above our regular tithes and whatever we regularly give. This is more of a sacrificial offering at Easter, because we remember that Jesus gave everything for us!

If you want to help us spread the word, our talented artists will write ConnectionEaster.com on the rear windshield of your car this Sunday.

There are so many ways to get ready for Easter, and I hope you’ll take advantage of these to make the most of this season!
