Jingle Jamming Contest

If your child attended KidzWorld last weekend and was in the 252 Theater they probably excitedly told you about some contest that you are still trying to figure out.  We are calling it “Jingle Jamming” to go along with our Jingle Jam Christmas Eve event.  The object of the contest is for kids to come up with a wacky, funny, wild video of someone or something (pets are fair game) jamming around the Christmas tree or any other Christmas-y background to their favorite Christmas song.  Be creative and have lots of fun with your kids.

Important stuff:

Videos must be submitted by Dec 20th to Mr. Dan on DVD.

Videos must be 1 min or less.

Grand Prize winner will be announced during Jingle Jam on Christmas Eve.

The Grand Prize is an Electric Guitar!  That’s right..how cool is that?  It will be worth the work.

We will have  flyers ready to send home with your kids in the next couple of weeks. Take a look at the promo below.

A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

The first picture is a boy having his birthday party here at NewSpring on Saturday.  His family and friends were completely blown away by what we do for kids here at NewSpring. The second picture was taken Saturday night. It’s a 4-year-old who didn’t want to leave KidzWorld!  This is not a staged photo!  The third picture is some of the kids signing our temporary wall outside 252 Theater.  If you have a chance you should go by and read some all the messages on the wall.  Even some adults have enjoyed signing the wall.

It is getting exciting around here at NewSpring!

Judgement House 2009

People waiting to go through JH.Here is the email that I sent out to our prayer team and I wanted to share it.  It is amazing what God did this year through Judgement House.

Well this is the last email for the 30 days of prayer for Judgement House 2009.  First of all, let me say thank you for praying for JH this year.  Prayer is so important to this ministry and I appreciate so much your time spent praying for us.

Sunday was a fantastic day all around. The weather was perfect. We saw God work in amazing ways in the hearts of the people going through.  We saw over 700 walk-ins and over 800 reservations. After counting the cards turned in by our encouragers we finished the night with 407 salvations!  What a night!  In the eight days of Judgement House we saw 6998 people which is only 200 less than last year even though we didn’t do it on Saturday!  That is just flat out amazing. For the eight days we saw over 2700 walkins and that is also a record.  But here is the greatest news–we have had a total of 1659 salvations over the production.  That is unbelievable!  God is so good and all the glory goes to Him.  The most salvations we ever recorded was 1197 two years ago when we did “59 Minutes”.  If you do the numbers that means almost 1 out of 4 people who came through made a decision for Christ.  We also recorded over 400 rededications and many more for prayer.

To those of you who helped in any way with JH this year, Debbie and I want to say a heartfelt “thank you.”  It takes so many people to pull it off and you guys rose to the occasion.  I was amazed by your willingness to do anything to help with the production.

To all the directors and group leaders, once again great job and thank you for taking on the responsibility of making things happen in your area.  Many people helped with JH for the first time this year and I got great comments about how much they loved being a part of the group and how they felt connected to NewSpring Church. 
I would like to say a special “thank you” to the people who showed up to tear down the set today.  You guys will never know what a special blessing that was to us.  Tear down is not fun or easy but it needs to be done.  Even though your numbers were few, you worked super hard and we appreciate it so much.

Don’t forget “First Wednesday” is this week at 6:30 p.m. in the auditorium.  We will have a wonderful time as we celebrate all the good things God has done here at NewSpring Church!
