Copyright restrictions make it difficult to provide our VBS students with the songs they sang all week. Currently, there isn't a simple audio CD that can be purchased either, so instead I have compiled links to the webpages where each music video can be purchased and downloaded.

However, you don't have to purchase the video if you simply want to watch the PREVIEW (free-of-charge).

I think that could be much fun for any of the kids--(that is if they have high-speed).

During my time away, I will not be updating this journal page. However, Cathy and I will be on facebook regularly. So, check in with us and let us know what you're doing. We'll do likewise!

Cathy and I are leaving for San Diego really early this morning (2 or 3 am). We will watch Dan and Cerissa run the San Diego Marathon. Then, they'll fly home but Cathy and I are staying in Southern California for a vacation and to attend a Pastors and Wives Retreat with Focus on the Family.

Here is my personal version of a story that will appear in today's Auburn Journal. We have posted it under this 'working title' on our church's page at the Journal's website. If you're local, I encourage you to buy a hardcopy at the newsstand.

The church 'being the church'

by Pastor Rob Patterson I am into my third year as a pastor in Auburn. From the start, Cathy and I have shopped locally, joined a gym, attended prayer meetings, and become chaplains at the local hospital … click here for more

We are praying for the BellRoad Family Day at the Regional Park in Auburn. It is on Saturday, May 30th from 11am through 4pm.

Here is a page about the park: click here

Here are directions: click here

Our special guest that day (and at our church on Sunday, May 31st is Salvador Fernandez (Sal).

Cathy, Daniel, Cerissa, and I are leaving for San Diego early Friday morning. The young people are running in a Marathon (26 miles) there. The older folks are going to cheer them on.

The after the race, the runners will fly back to Sacramento. Cathy and I are staying down south until the Pastors and Wives Retreat (Focus on the Family).

Our kitchen is being remodeled during these final days before we leave. So, its been kinda busier than usual for our household.

*Just after posting today's entry, this came into my INBOX:

Hi Pastor Rob,

I hope this email finds you well.

I know you're a busy guy, but I was wondering if you might have time to submit a pastor column for Friday's Journal. I've struck out with some other local pastors, but would really like to have some local content for our Religion page. And you always have something interesting to share with readers.


The column would need to be around 500 words,
and submitted by noon Thursday.

If this is at all possible, please let me know, and I'll plan accordingly.

Thank you,
Loryll Nicolaisen  Auburn Journal

Noon, Thursday (23.5 hours?!)...and we're remodeling...and we're leaving on vacation. Yes, but....I said "YES":

I'd love to.

It will be about our moving to the Auburn Greens and what that's like to take ministry into the neighborhood.

I hung the second banner up at our church driveway today.  The signs look good, I think.

Wednesday, May 20, 2009

My waking dream:
My son, Jeremiah had knocked over a great number of tools from a high-place (a tree, I think). His younger brother, Daniel, was underneath. Gravity caused these heavy, blunt instruments to rain down with great force. Before I could note if Daniel had been injured, I heard a masculine 'scream' from above. Jeremiah, in re-active haste, had severed his hand.


and I went for a long walk and read over some supplemental material for a Young Marrieds class in which he is subbing this Sunday. We read the material from the Seniors' perspective.

Cathy and I will attend a Chaplain's Meeting today at Sutter Faith Hospital at 10:30am Deborah McCrary (MSW) will be presenting on Alcohol and Substance Abuse visits.

Powerful time of prayer yesterday (during the Elections and just prior to this season's final BSF). I chatted with Alicia about the prayer meeting last night.

Tuesday, May 19, 2009

Special Election Day here in California. I was up at 3:30am in anticipation. After checking on friends at facebook, I went back to bed. Cathy's failsafe phone alarm failed us...the call came in from frantic elections workers at 5:59am.

So, I ran down to the churchhouse-polling site. That's where I am right now.

Several leaders met in a productive G.R.O.W. meeting last night from 6:30-7:50pm.

At the church pulling weeds...stopped in to check progress on DVDs that I am producing to recruit and equip volunteers who will help us with our Property, Buildings, and Grounds (including our new roof project).

update: We just posted this video clip at the Auburn Journal. Had we heeded Barry's 'Round-Up' intructions, I would not have had to do much weeding this morning.

I've already finished most of the powerpoint slides for the Morning Sermon. However, I'm leading Worship Team in the evening so I must decide upon the songs and make those slides too. It will be great when the Lord of the Harvest sends forth more workers (in response to our prayers).

The women came out for Polly's Baby Shower. Janene brought me a lunch while I was working on the video.

Friday, May 15, 2009

A busy day. Met with Mike H. to video a walk-on-the-rooftop. Here's a paper that Joe wrote that I find helpful as we proceed to think about the future:

M-Commerce by Joseph Patterson

Tuesday, May 12, 2009

The Holy Spirit: "We don't always know what He's been up to or what He's gonna do next. However, He is moving so I know He's doing something good." -- me, today.

an excerpt from

My Utmost for His Highest-May 12:

"Your god may be your little Christian habit, the habit of prayer at stated times, or the habit of Bible reading. Watch how your Father will upset those times if you begin to worship your habit instead of what the habit symbolizes - I can't do that just now, I am praying; it is my hour with God.

No, it is your hour with your habit. There is a quality that is lacking in you. Recognize the defect and then look for the opportunity of exercising yourself along the line of the quality to be added."

Cathy, Mary, and I went to Merced yesterday for Student Orientation at Merced College. Mary obtained her Student ID. After Josh (Mary's boyfriend) got off work, we dropped her off to spend some quality time with him and his family.

Then, Cathy and I drove to Yosemite National Park. As we drove down that long road into the Park, we saw the Cascades on the left, the Bridal Veil Falls on the right, then took a walk on the path to Lower Yosemite Falls.

The only other time we were there was about ten years ago with all the kids for a long day trip. It would be a great place to hang out for a few days.

We returned home at 1:16am. I woke up around 6:30am. Full day ahead. After Staff Meeting, I'll take Matt out for a prayerwalk.

Lots of purposeful good ahead of us.

Yesterday, Salvador Fernandez (Church Planting Strategist) came to Auburn today to help us move forward with our Spanish work. We had a great time of prayerwalking--gearing up for an Outreach at the Regional Park on Saturday, May 30th. He'll preach in our pulpit on the following day.

Sal had checked out this website before coming to meet me. He discovered that we had come from Michigan. He had ministered there as well. It turns out that we have a connection with mutual friends:

Eugene and Nan Bragg from the State Staff. Nan was the woman who first taught us sign language. They had both been to Alpha and Omega Ministries several times.

Last night, I met with the deacons for two hours as we attempted to work through some practical application of peacemaking principles. Soli deo gloria.

Passage for Sunday's Sermon (Forgiven)

Luke 7:36-50 Now one of the Pharisees invited Jesus to have dinner with him, so he went to the Pharisee's house and reclined at the table.

37When a woman who had lived a sinful life in that town learned that Jesus was eating at the Pharisee's house, she brought an alabaster jar of perfume, 38and as she stood behind him at his feet weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears. Then she wiped them with her hair, kissed them and poured perfume on them.

39When the Pharisee who had invited him
saw this, he said to himself, "If this man were a prophet, he would know who is touching him and what kind of woman she is—that she is a sinner." 

 40Jesus answered him, "Simon, I have something to tell you."
      "Tell me, teacher," he said.

 41"Two men owed money to a certain moneylender. One owed him five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. 42Neither of them had the money to pay him back, so he canceled the debts of both. Now which of them will love him more?"

 43Simon replied, "I suppose the one who had the bigger debt canceled."
      "You have judged correctly," Jesus said.

 44Then he turned toward the woman and said to Simon, "Do you see this woman? I came into your house. You did not give me any water for my feet, but she wet my feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair. 45You did not give me a kiss, but this woman, from the time I entered, has not stopped kissing my feet. 46You did not put oil on my head, but she has poured perfume on my feet. 47Therefore, I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven—for she loved much. But he who has been forgiven little loves little."

 48Then Jesus said to her, "Your sins are forgiven."
49The other guests began to say among themselves, "Who is this who even forgives sins?"
 50Jesus said to the woman, "Your faith has saved you; go in peace."

Last night, Cathy and I attended our first 'spinning class' at the Courthouse Athletic Club (a 45-minute workout). Jerry, our second son, went with us to guide us in the process.

Later in the evening, I our entire family (Cathy, Joe, Sharon, Jeremiah, Daniel, and Mary) shared in a circle prayer over a matter of spiritual significance for our local church and our family. I thank the Lord for his recent leadership through the pulpit at BellRoad.

I came to the office for a 7am Finance Committee meeting. There is now a wonderful new crew at the visionary helm for our local church in the area of Stewardship. I'm praising the Lord that Bell Road Baptist Church continues to be on the list of the top 100 SBC churches in cooperative program giving. For the first quarter in 2009, we are #45. I don't think that the Lord is all that impressed...but hey, its better than dropping off the list completely (considering what all our church body has endured during the last three quarters)!

Tomorrow is the National Day of Prayer: click here
Locally, there will be a group of leaders down at the Auburn Courthouse steps at noon. I'll try to be there.

Up early this morning. Now am at the church office (8am) answered an email from one of our members on the east coast. Now, I'm about to work on post-production for yesterday's sermon.

I already uploaded the admonition, scripture, songs and prayers associated with "The Lord's Supper" (which we shared together yesterday morning).

...though I had software glitches once again, here's the link to yesterday's 27-minute sermon:

Woke up at 4:30am this morning. I learned that facebook had increased their video upload limits to 1024 MB-20 minutes. That is great news! So, I had to try it out to see how much the compression distorts the image. Not bad.

If you're not signed up for facebook, I encourage you to do so and add me as one of your first friends:
