God Is on the Move
God is always at work in our lives and in our church, though we often do not see it. When we see God doing great things, we should always seek to celebrate as many of these ways as we can.
Yesterday morning in worship we highlighted our Embrace Grace ministry again as a new semester is now underway. Several ladies attended the opening night and our volunteers are very excited about how God is already at work. They expect a few others to attend who were unable to be there last night, but listen to what one of our volunteers shared with me today in response to what they experienced last night: “These girls have experienced a lot of pain in their young lives that have caused them to question God’s love for them although they all seem open to his working in their lives and need to see the extravagant love of God through his people.”
We get the opportunity to be the extravagant love of God to the community and world around us – what an incredible privilege! From children to senior adults, and all ages in between, we strive to provide a meaningful ministry for all ages. Our children are growing in their faith and we are preparing for a great VBS this summer (call or email a staff member to sign-up to help) along with CASH and pre-teen camp. Our teenagers love their new worship space as they are connecting new students to our ministry. They are also preparing for summer camp and other great opportunities. Our adult Small Groups, Bible studies, and other ministries continue to increase as well. Service projects and mission trips are happening as well.
We also love our senior adults (Young at Heart) and the wonderful ways they impact our church. Last Sunday night the Young at Heart committee, led by David Hobbs, hosted a Gospel Night. We had over 150 in attendance as two gospel groups ministered through song as well as a wonderful time of fellowship. Thank you, David, for your leadership with our senior adults. We desire to continue to reach and grow multiple generations as we fulfill the church’s mission.
Be a difference maker this week and continue to celebrate all God is doing in your life and in the life of our church.
