It’s hard to believe my journey as the Interim Pastor at our West Ridge Cartersville location is coming to an end. As you know, James Griffin was recently appointed to take over the role permanently. He started moving into his office in Cartersville yesterday and will officially start on January 1. James is going to do a super job!
In the mean time, let me share some highlights and news for the next couple of weeks:
- Momentum – We continue to see more and more new faces on Sundays. And, because of that, attendance has been up significantly in recent weeks. Last Sunday, as an example, we were up close to 20% from the same Sunday last year. Don’t worry…we’ve added seating for our Christmas Eve Eve services.
- Christmas Eve Eve – It’s “sold out.” If you didn’t get your tickets for one of these services, please consider joining us on Christmas Eve instead for our 4:30 pm service. There are a handful of free tickets left for that service.
- New Year’s Day – Brian Bloye, our senior pastor, will be teaching live at all three campuses. Brian has a lot to share about what’s planned for West Ridge in 2012.
- January 8 – James will be teaching and talking specifically about his vision for West Ridge in Cartersville. It’ll be his first opportunity to address the congregation as our new lead pastor.
