Avery / Family / Ed Young – C3

This three day weekend is going to be crazy, but amazing!

Here are the main highlights…

- Brian and Libby are going to have their baby! Avery will enter our world! Check out their blogs and show them some love! Their updates and posts are like watching a month long movie!

- Leah’s family is coming in for the weekend. The apartment is clean (well, it’s always clean, which is a story for another day), the groceries are bought, and we are awaiting their arrival any minute! She has three young brothers so all the “cleanliness” will be in vein, but oh well. Any good ideas as to where we can take them?? Fall stuff??

- The Creative Church Conference (C3) with Ed Young is on Monday!!! I can’t wait to connect with so many people that I know are coming! I honestly do not know why any leader in the Northeast would miss this! Actually, I don’t know why any Christian in the Northeast would miss this. Check out a video HERE. Click the link! Click the link! Click the link! (Sorry…I have a twitch)

Ed Young Coming to Northway / UNITED Tonight

c3-otr.jpgI can’t wait for Octber 13th when Ed Young comes to Northway! His popular Creative Church Conference (C3) is going on the road and coming to our Clifton Park campus. This is such a great thing for the Northeast. It’s a great day for so many leaders to come together and be strengthened and encouraged!


Whether you’re a pastor, church staffer, church member, or whatever, then you should come! It’s worth taking the day off, changing plans, walking up a hill barefoot in the snow, or whatever needs to be done so that you don’t miss out on this historic event in the Northeast. God has placed Northway Church here in the Northeast for a reason. God has given us a leader that has a contagious passion and dream for reaching the whole Northeast for God. I have lived in the Northeast for my whole life, and I too share that dream! I believe there is a great change that is about to take place for God. I believe that October 13th will help UNITE leaders and take that to the next level.

Don’t miss out! Are you going to be here? CLICK HERE to register.


Also don’t forget…

UNITED is tonight at 6:30pm in Clifton Park for 6-12 graders!! Don’t miss it! It’s going to be amazing!

We will reveal some plans for when we split Middle School and High School!

We are inviting any High School students to come to the church after school to help set-up and just hang out! Bring your homework too! I hope you can make it!

Don’t forget that next Wednesday is UNITED LIVE! (October 8th)

Weekly Re-Cap / Thoughts

- Beautiful weather up here all of last week! (Except for the “tornado” like weather a couple of nights…and all the hail, and lightning strikes that caused fires all over)

- I had a pretty interesting trip to Plattsburgh.

- I think I upset some of my relatives about my remarks about PT Cruisers. It turns out 3/6 of my relatives in Texas all drive PT Cruisers! They should join one of the many PT Cruiser clubs across North America. Maybe I will too…nahhhh!

- I guess that the Celtics will have to win it all at home. Oh well. They didn’t score enough touchdowns. Go Boston!

- Ed Young (I love his blog) did an incredible job speaking for the One Prayer series. His “WAKE UP!” message really spoke to me! I needed to hear that.

- Ed spoke about Eutychus, who fell out of a third-story window during church. Eutycussed too if you fell out of a window! haha…I got a good laugh out of that one.

- I got to be down in Colonie again for the Sunday morning service! I love talking to the VIP’s (volunteers) down there. They have such a passion for that location!

- Leah and I went for a nice Sunday night drive. Besides guzzling all that gas, Leah refused to take her door off of my Jeep. We got a lot of awkward stares while driving around with one door on and one door off!

- Yesterday was Father’s Day!


084_fathers_day1.jpg- There is an estimated 64.3 million fathers across the Nation.

- Sonora Dodd, of Washington, first had the idea of a “father’s day.” She thought of the idea for Father’s Day while listening to a Mother’s Day sermon in 1909.

- President Calvin Coolidge, in 1924, supported the idea of a national Father’s Day. Then in 1966 President Lyndon Johnson signed a presidential proclamation declaring the 3rd Sunday of June as Father’s Day. President Richard Nixon signed the law which finally made it permanent in 1972.

- Why didn’t Calvin Coolidge just do it?

- “If the new American father feels bewildered and even defeated, let him take comfort from the fact that whatever he does in any fathering situation has a fifty percent chance of being right.” — Bill Cosby

Who looks more like Toby from The Office? Me or BRIAN?


Brian does, right? For some odd reason, he thinks that I do.

(Brian is going to kill me for this!)
