I don’t know that I have ever seen more people here on a Wednesday night than I saw last night! Oh my goodness. Kids were everywhere! Folks continue to sign up for the AWANA program. Thank you to our amazing team of leaders who make that so special. I met a brand new guest who was coming for Conversational English. This is such a wonderful program of ministry. The teens poured in as well. Folks, we are a very blessed church.
We are having breakfast together on Sunday, February 26th at 9:15am. Look for the tents that are set up to pick up your breakfast and go to your Life Group. I often stick my head in a few of our Life Groups as they get started on Sundays. There is wonderful encouragement taking place in these groups. We have a great group of teachers that prepare each week to take the truths of God’s Word and apply them to daily life. If you are already involved, let me encourage you to invite others to become involved in your group.
The Art of Marriage begins on Wednesday night, February 8 at 6pm in room 208. Family Life Today is a ministry that has produced these excellent videos. Phillip and Jennifer Steers will host the meetings. Don’t miss out on these if at all possible. This is an excellent study for you and your spouse.
Disciple Now weekend is February 24-26 for all of our youth. Kris Woods has put together a great weekend of Spiritual challenge and fun for our students. Students sign up by filling out the registration envelope and placing in the offering plate.
Our College Students are having a Super Bowl Party this coming Sunday following the evening worship service. Many new friends may be here to watch the game and meet our students.
We will celebrate the Lord’s Supper together on Sunday night Feb. 12th at 6pm. This is always a special time as we remember the great gift of salvation and contemplate what Jesus did to reconcile us to the Father.
Pizza and Paint Night is February 27 at 6pm in room 206. This will be a great fellowship event for our ladies, youth age on up!
We are making the final push toward our Unhindered Campaign in the next 9 months! God has been so good to us in this huge effort to raise over 1.1 million dollars to pay off our main building. Friends, we have raised $857,632.19 through January of this new year! We are witnessing a financial miracle right before our eyes!
These are just a few of the many things that are happening in the life of our church. Let’s never lose sight of the fact that all of these things are tools to be used in “making disciples” of all the nations. Our goal is to Go—sharing Jesus with people, Connect—baptizing people and then plugging them in with us in our community of faith, and Teach—this is why God’s Word is of utmost importance in all that we do.
What a tremendous blessing it is for me to be your Pastor. I am encouraged by your prayers and faithfulness.
