Thank you to everyone who was able to make it along to the launch of STAGE TWO on Friday night. It really was a fantastic time of fellowship, worship, and committing all of our hopes and plans to God. If you weren’t able to make it, please be sure to collect your information pack from church as it contains a STAGE TWO booklet and an opportunity to make a contribution towards the building. Over the last five years, our church has grown from an average of 218 people each Sunday to now over 350. Similarly, most of our ministries have significantly grown with some being double the size. This of course has nothing to do with how good we are, but the incredible work of God amongst us. God always does the growing, yet in his kindness and mercy, he involves his church in his mission. What a privilege!
As we look towards and beyond our VISION 2020, it’s evident that now is the time to build. Now is the time to expand our facilities to ensure that we can continue to enable God’s mission as we seek to increasingly become a church for the entire city for the next century. What a delight to know that the Gospel work that we partake in will contribute to the life of the church for many generations to come! On Sunday September 25 we will have the opportunity to bring our pledge cards along to church and commit them to God.
Please join with me in praying for God to be greatly glorified through our church, that we will continue in the making and maturing of disciples, and that sufficient resources will be raised up.
