“What an awesome place this is! It is none other than the house of God, the very gateway to heaven!”
There is nothing on the planet like the church of Jesus Christ, fully alive with the power and presence of God, overflowing with hope and faith. It is the “very gateway to heaven” for so many. And it’s in and through the church that children and students can build a foundation on the Word of God that will prepare them for a lifetime of following Jesus.
The apostle Paul challenges us in Romans, “How will they know unless we tell them? How can they believe in a God of whom they have never heard?”(Rom.10:14) We must be the ones to go. We must be the ones to tell them. This year we have some big goals to move the church forward. There are more people to reach, so there are new campuses to launch and new sanctuaries to build. So we will expand and enlarge to make our “home” a little bit bigger.
So this year we’re entering a season called “Heart for the House.” We’re praying that God will give each of us a deeper love for His house and everything He wants to do in this place. As a member in God’s family we want to challenge you to ask God, “What’s my responsibility for Your house? How do you want to use me to build Your house and make it ready for more people?” Here’s what we know - eternity will be forever changed by our commitment to pray and sacrifice to build a home where more people can come and find the grace and truth of Christ.
We love you,
Pastors Todd & Julie
