Building Forward

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

The Champion family rarely dose anything within the context of normal… Nope!
Here we find ourselves in the middle of Building… which means dust, banging and materials everywhere-
And….
Pumpkin patching, which means showing Gods non-stop love to our community, with hay all over, long hot days, and full weekends-
Along with….
Pirate Shows, which means costumes, wigs, hats and swords all over the Kids Building… Oh and in that same kids building…our babies just moved in for the next several weeks as the offices move~
So our main room can move~
so our babies can move~
so our media can move~
so our lobby can move~ Whew… It’s crazy times around here!!
Well… as a Champion would you have it any other way?
Building Forward is what we’re all about!
In our serious changing times Gods Houses are filling up at an alarming rate and I’m SO thankful we’ve been positioned and blessed to make room for what God is doing as His Church across the earth AWAKENS!
Above all I’m so thankful for each of
“YOU”
How can Jesus save hurting, desperate people without you and I stepping up to all He’s called us to?
John 3: 21 tells us… “whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.”
All we DO— sacrifice, love, serve, build, give, touch, bless…. It’s seen by God!
I always look at it like this…..
“God as You see this in your sight I want you to see I don’t just say I love you but I’m doing this to show my love for You, Your people and Your Church!”
What FUN times!!
Oh….
We NEED CANDY!!!
We have utterly thousands of kids landing at Champion’s trick or treat street next week- let’s fill their bags with love and candy!!!!!!!!

Loves,
LaCinda xo

What age did you know?

By | Pastors, Uncategorized | No Comments

What age did you know you would serve serve the Lord and what were the circumstances?

Out of 22 questions that came in recently at our Sisterhood Christmas party, here’s number 6. (I’ll answer more over time)¬†

My parents were attending a small Church that was very poor and the Pastor had no pulpit. My father offered to build him one and the Church was thrilled. For weeks my dad worked on creating the most beautiful pulpit. He measured his Pastor and built it for his height so his Bible would be perfectly placed to preach from. Read More

Halloween at Champion!

“If we don’t give these kids something to do on a night like Halloween then we’re gonna loose them all to the world, and in the end the devil will win”

My mom (Miss Marilyn) said this at a Church meeting back in the early 70’s.
She was the leader over all the Sunday School’s departments at our Church and asked to
to have a meeting with all the Church leaders who were up against what to do with the “devil’s’ holiday (which happened to be on a Wednesday night and that was Church night.)

Back in those days if you were a Christian you were against the whole Halloween thing and I mean… hatefully against it!
My mom was fully prepared with a plan when the leaders said, “well what can we do?”
She set out a plan.

I want to inspire people. I want someone to look at me and say, ‘Because of you, I didn’t give up.’

It was so encouraging to see this Instagram post from @laur3ncraft! I wanted to share it with those who inspire me the most in life… You, the Champion!!

It’s SO important for us to stop and pause, taking a moment to reflect on the BLESSING and INSPIRATION we are in the lives of others. “YOU” ARE A TRUE BLESSING and “YOU” INSPIRE MANY!!!

Today Pastor Stephen and I were out at the Pumpkin Patch and seeing all the orange tee-shirts was an incredible sight. Of course the Champion Volunteers were in full form as they prepared to lead little ones from station to station.
