Closing Out 2014…A Year of Getting By or Going Big?

I wanted to give everyone a quick update on what the church accomplished in 2014. I’m really proud of my gang. It’s amazing what we’ve been able to do with such a small crew.

We changed the name of our worship community from The Pilgrimage to Kapow Church.

For our December offering we raised just over a $1000 for Dream Daycare in Rwanda. They’re a ministry supported by Africa New Life Ministries. Check out their video HERE.

We hosted church services again at X-Con, a pop culture convention in Myrtle Beach SC.

Operation Christmas Child was a huge success again this year, as we were able to pack and ship 50 boxes, which was another increase over the previous year. Check out our Facebook page for the photos!

Our stats for OCC boxes each year are…

  • 2 in 2010- Our first year that our family did it.
  • 4 in 2011- Still just my family.
  • 29 from a church of 150 in 2011. I was Asst. Pastor at Parkway Community Baptist Church in Myrtle Beach. As you can see, there wasn’t a huge buy-in from this group.
  • 15 in 2012- The first year our church sent boxes.
  • 24 in 2013

We stopped doing services on Sunday morning and moved to Sunday nights. Attendance doubled.

For Father’s Day we took a group of our folks kayaking and managed to return them all home.

We hosted a Charity:Water birthday party that helped build a water system in Rwanda.

One of our members attended DragonCon in Atlanta GA with GameChurch.

We started a monthly Fight Night to build camaraderie and take out some stress on each other.

Let’s see what our 5th year as a church holds for us!
