A Morning at Gardner Campus

A Morning at Gardner Campus

If you haven't been to Indian Creek's Gardner campus you got to go soon! I was struck immediately, even as I turned right on Mulberry street at the Indian Creek yard sign, at how well prepared the Gardner team is for guests. The signage was easy to find and follow. The lunch room at Wheatridge Middle School is set up so well it looks like an atrium. It looks and feels like Indian Creek south. The team there is friendly and outgoing. It was fun to reconnect with so many I've come to love and respect through the years.

The service was great. Lindsey Phillips did a super job leading the worship team. I enjoyed the passionate, well prepared songs and I felt the presence of God. Ben and Sarah are providing excellent leadership to the Gardner campus. They were connecting and encouraging their team and welcoming guests. Belinda Kendall spoke yesterday as part of the Warrior/Beautiful series. I thought she did as good of a job as I've ever heard her share. I was proud of my wife! I think she helped women and guys too understand what God was up to when He put the desire for beauty and goodness in our hearts. And the best part about it is that we get our beauty, identity and fulfillment in Him!

As I was leaving a new attendee stopped me with these words, I don't know if you know how much Gardner needed this church. I asked her to tell me more. I'll paraphrase her words but this is essentially what she said. I used to attend Indian Creek in Olathe but we live in Gardner so I looked for a church here. I visited nearly evey one but when I came to this campus I felt the immediate love and acceptance I felt in Olathe. I knew I was home. I asked her to tell me more about why she felt that. She said there is a welcoming spirit, we teach the Word, we have a contemporary worship and we meet needs in our community. She teared up as she described how life giving this is for her family.

If you haven't been to the Gardner campus arrange your schedule to participate. Support and encourage our team there. Pray for them and help out on service projects like Trunk or Treat. This week on Thursday they are meeting to canvas the neighborhoods inviting people to Trunk or Treat this coming Saturday, Oct 31, at 6:30 p.m. in the Wheatridge parking lot.

Praise God for what is happening at Gardner!
