This weekend we traveled to Greenville, SC to check out another one of NPCC's strategic partners, Catalyst Church. We had a great time! Awesome worship, awesome message (Hard to go wrong with an Andy sermon!) and great fellowship. It's really cool to visit the other partners and see how they "do church". It still amazes me everyday that we get to be a part of this incredible ride! How did we get so lucky??? We arrived in Greenville early in the evening, so once we checked into the hotel we headed out to find something to eat. The theater where Catalyst meets is right in the downtown area, so it's surrounded by a bunch of real trendy stores and resturants. It was so much fun to walk down Main Street and check out all the little shops. Our favorite one was called "Mast General Store" and just like the name implies, it was an old fashioned general store. Fun little trinkets and lots of yummy candy and goodies. The pictures above are of "Falls Park at the Reedy". This place was awesome! There's a waterfall in the middle of downtown! The city has made this into such a beautiful park. Lots of green areas to play in and the waterfall made tons of tiny tidepools they kids could play in. After playing in the park until dark we walked a few blocks and found a Sticky Fingers. Now next to fishing with Capt Dave, this has got to be Rusty's fav place to be! After stuffing ourselves full of BBQ we headed back to the hotel to crash for the night. The next morning we spent with Ryan (The SPD @ Catalyst) and his wife Courtney. After church we went out to eat again! (So much for the diet!) A two hour lunch at Atlanta Bread Co. and a hundred laughs later, we headed for home. It's good to be home. We are back in full swing this week @ Ridge and I can't wait!
