Everyone please go take a look at Mike Paschall’s latest blog entry. I think you will find it worth your while.
This Friday, over 12 moms and daughters will head to Dallas for a weekend of worship, teaching, and fellowship. The Revolve Tour Dallas kicks off Friday night and our group is pumped. It’s not just ECF folks but some from the Lutheran tribe as well. Please join in praying for their safety, joy, expectation, and spiritual breakthrough. These gals are of great value to the kingdom and to us!
Thanks to Amy Taylor for her time, vision, and love in this endeavor.
Some of our ladies (moms and daughters) will be going on an adventure in February to the Women of Faith REVOLVE TOUR. This is going to be a special time for them to get out of town, bond with one another and many other believers, and hopefully get a great download of life and Spirit form those in leadership over this gathering. Please be in prayer over our people so that they give and get exactly what is hoped for during theyre time there.
We have been blessed to receive some help with the hotel rooms, and any additional donations towards food, gas, or tickets would be greatly appreciated. Please feel free to speak with me or Amy Taylor!
Mike Paschall has spent the last three years transferring the revelation from his heart and mind to paper. This daily devotional is the byproduct of several things: he’s been a son for over 55 years, a husband for over 35 years, a father for over 30 years, and a pastor and spiritual mentor for nearly 30 years of public ministry.
His desire is that The Holy One will talk to you through these devotionals and that the questions “In The Pages” will prompt you to journal your own thoughts and prayers.
RAW TALKS WITH WISDOM: Not Your Grandma’s Devo gives Mike the opportunity to be himself and say things as he really sees them. This is not the norm in devotional literature (thus the title), but his prayer is that some of what he writes will help you turn to and embrace the raw truth of God’s unlimited wisdom and magnificent love.

Hello to all,
Just wanted to give a brief update on what’s going on in our Sunday morning “Adventure Class.” Week 1 was an intro into the Armor of God. Our theme is “We are Strong – God Strong.” We are in Ephesians Chapter 6. Our 1st mission impossible was to protect, serve, and love in our daily lives. Easier said than done sometimes. We played a wounded warrior game for fun where we rescued fallen classmates. Andrew exhibited much trust in letting us carry him.
This past Sunday we were joined by Kyle, Hunter, and Troy as helpers in our quest. Again we were in Eph ch 6 and discussed the Belt of Truth. We discussed the the encompassing nature of truth and our actual belt was filled with many examples of the richness of that truth. We then took to the park after the lesson to divide up and run a compass course using many of the tools found in the belt to find our way. This proved to be quite challenging. We learned that truth can be hard to follow if the directions are lacking. At the end of the course was the prize of beef jerky hidden deep in the waters of Jerry’s duck pond. The kids were pumped and had a great time. We picked up a bit of trash in the park to boot!
Next up; the Breastplate of Righteousness See you all soon!
The Very Worst Sunday School Teacher
We have the opportunity again to gather at Coach’s BBQ and worship together this coming Sunday at 9:30 am. It will basically be the same format as last time with us tweaking some things to make worship flow a little better. We encourage you to bring a friend and then stay to eat together after we are done. Please be praying that there are those who might be willing to come gather at Coaches who would not be comfortable in a “church” building.
I will send out a reminder email on Saturday and will most likely be calling many of you as a reminder of the 9:30 start time as we are creatures of habit.
see you Sunday,
ECF will be having a pool party this Thursday the 16th at the McGregor Aquatic Center from 6-8 pm. We will have food and drink, fun and games. There will be a full staff of lifeguards working that night.
