Pastor's Point - September 2022
Dear Church Family,
I am so thankful for all the new things the Lord is doing in our church.
NEW WORSHIP PASTOR
As most of you should know by now, we have extended a call to Evan Gray to come and be our new Worship Pastor, and I could not be more excited! Evan, Sarah, and their kids, James and Charlotte, are going to be wonderful additions to our church family. Evan is called, gifted, and has a heart for the local church. I believe in the coming months and years we will come to appreciate the kindness of the Lord to send Evan and his family our way.
Recently, we have had people placing their trust in Jesus as their Savior and Lord and following in baptism. This is what it is all about! Lives changed by the power of the
Gospel. There is no better way to start our services than to watch people follow in obedience in baptism. Please keep praying for more to hear the Gospel and respond in faith.
NEW FALL MINISTRY OPPORTUNITIES
A new season of ministry has begun for our children’s and student ministries. Each Sunday and Wednesday, there is important ministry being offered through AWANA, Life Groups, Student Worship, and UPWARD, as well as other special fall events. In every new season of ministry, God always shows up and blesses our children and students, and I know He is going to do it this fall as well.
NEW STUDENT MINISTRY SPACE
I am so thankful that we have begun to build the new student ministry space at South Campus. This is going to be a great place for our students to be invested in spiritually, to see them grow closer together as a group, and most importantly, grow closer to God in their relationship with Him. If you would like to help in the development of this
project, please call the church office and let us know. Also, please know that we will be renovating the old student ministry space at South Campus soon to provide a dedicated large ministry space for our children’s ministry.
NEW FOCUS AND DEDICATION
As your pastor I want you to know that God has me focused and dedicated for all the ministry that is waiting for us in the months and years to come. I have been blessed to be your pastor for sixteen years! I am praying that our best days as a church family are still ahead of us as God moves in great ways, and then we simply follow Him, asking Him to lead us and guide us every step of the way!!
I love you and I love being your pastor!
