Night to Shine Prom

Fan or Follower?
Dear Discovery Friends and Family,

This weekend I encourage everybody out there to be in church on Sunday prior to the Super Bowl. I want to ask everyone an interesting question on Superbowl Sunday: Are you a fan or a follower of Jesus? Fans and followers have some pretty big differences.

I have to be honest: I couldn't care less who wins the Super Bowl. I personally am not a fan of either team playing. However, I am a big Phoenix Suns fan. I love to go to games. I love to cheer on the Suns. However, this is just a horrible season to be a Suns fan. They are terrible! They can't win a game. They just fired their head coach. It's bad. I am very much disinterested and focusing on other things. I suppose I am just a fan and not a follower.

Jesus asked us to be followers and not just fans. I hope that you will come to hear all about it. Here's a bold statement: Most people are just fans and not followers of Jesus. I ask again: Are you a fan or a follower of Jesus?

Please don't forget that Saturday at 9 AM at the church is the volunteers meeting for the Night to Shine Prom. We are just over a week away from this monumental community impact night at Discovery in partnership with the Tim Tebow Foundation. I am so excited to be a part of a church that loves our community and people with special needs. We are anticipating around 400 people participating in Night to Shine!

I love you and it is a privilege to serve as your pastor!
