Tonight we kicked of our God’s Not Dead Series with the Awakening Youth Band singing this AWESOME song!
We played volleyball because, well, you can’t get enough volleyball. Really, think about it. There are only a few Sundays left that we can actually go outside, and we plan on using that to the fullest!
After drinks, chips, and volleyball we spent some time worshiping!
Go “Against the Grain”!
A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL THE VOLUNTEERS!
This past Sunday (September 7th, 2014), New Life Church sent 58 volunteers to the Rev3 Cedar Point Triathlon. What is a Triathlon? A full triathlon is a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike, and 26.2 mile run!
We had SO MUCH fun handing out water, Gatorade, Coke, PowerGel packs, pretzels, salt (while running in place – David), and even stretching – Erik.
We had a “dance party” to encourage the runners who were still out after dark!
We found a new and efficient way to fill the liquids from the coolers.
Pastor Dustin and Luke decided to jam out towards the end of the night!
Thank you to all who made this an AWESOME event for the all the runners that passed the BEST aid station on the 26.2 mile run. We were the first and last aid station they came to. We were at miles 1 and 12 for the half Iron Man, and miles 1, 12, 14, and 25 for the full Iron Man. There were 300 full and 700 half runners which means that we saw 1,000 runners pass us 2,600 times over the span of approximately 13 hours. We were there at 8:15 A.M. setting up, the first runner came through around 11:30 A.M., and we didn’t leave until 12:30 A.M. (Monday morning) when the last runner passed.

This Sunday we watched the movie, God’s Not Dead, in preparation for our upcoming “God’s Not Dead” Series that begins on September 14th. For more info on the movie you can click on this link: GodsNotDeadTheMovie.com.
We set a New Life Church record for the number of volunteers for the Rev3 Triathlon this Sunday with 59 volunteers! We would like to thank everyone who has signed up to volunteer this year. The countdown is on… Five days as of this posting!
