    Awaken Turns 4

    My family and I sang Happy Birthday to Awaken Church this morning as we gathered around the kitchen table for pancakes – it was a great way to start the day!

    4 years ago today, after years of planning and preparing, Awaken Church opened its doors for its very first church service on a rainy Saturday night. I shared a message from Romans 13 called “Are You Awake?” and we got to see the first of hundreds of people surrender their life to Christ! What a moment!

    Here are some milestones from the last 4 years:

    – Sept 19, 2009: first church service

    – July 11, 2010: Grand re-opening of Awaken, moved from Saturday nights to Sunday mornings

    – September 18, 2010: 1 year birthday celebration with Jimmy Needham
