In order for this movement to take place together we must see ourselves as ambassadors of Christ. Merrian-Webster defines ambassador as “an authorized representative or messenger.” When a messenger passes along wonderful news that is transferred again and again, the message endures and is multiplied in the process. Just like the little boy’s loaves and fish were multiplied in Matthew 14, so also will the gospel message be passed to the next generation. What we may view as small and lacking, can flourish and multiply in the hands of our great God if only we are willing to be use in that way.
- Community Groups are set to begin next week on Jan. 22. Last semester was a great experience and I know this semester is going to be amazing! In all our community groups, we want to encourage you to connect with other believers to care for each other, grow in your faith together, serve practical needs, and reach outside the church with the Gospel.
- On Jan. 28, we will have a 'Night of Worship.'This is going to be an amazing night. We are going to celebrate the work that God has done here at our church this past year and look forward to the opportunities in 2018. As we celebrate God’s activity in our lives we worship the God of this great work. The night will be led by Adoration Worship. Prior to the event we will have coffee and dessert, which will be served beginning at 5:45 p.m. and our 'Night of Worship' will begin at 6:30 p.m.
- Kid Camp begins the week of Feb. 4. Over the next two weeks we are going to make contact with the families that participated in the 2017 Camp. We have several opportunities for your involvement in this ministry. This is a very practical ministry that reaches out in our community to pass the gospel to the next generation. If you would like to participate, register your kids here. Connect with our Children’s Coordinator, Sefa Kienast for more details.
- One Night is set for Feb. 15 from 6-9 p.m. I am excited that Westview Primary School has agreed to serve as our host site. Please know--we need all hands on deck to pull this off! I want to ask you to invest both your time and resources into this ministry. You can donate to One Night online or contribute by giving a special offering through the church. If you give through the church please indicate the amount on the church envelope. Also, we need all volunteers to fill out an application for us to have a record of your desire to participate and to help us with coordinating all volunteers. Click here to complete this application. Let's make it happen!!
