With God there is always a NEXT.
Twelve months ago, we decided to pray bold prayers and take brave steps.
At a time when we could have focused on what we had done, we sensed God showing us what we could do. Dreams began to grip our hearts in ways we couldn’t ignore. We wanted to see what God would do NEXT.
As we began having conversations with God, His gifts in our lives started to feel a lot less like accomplishments and a lot more like a calling. We began to ask ourselves – “Do we trust God in the NEXT thing He is calling us to?”
Grace changes everything. We hear stories on a weekly basis of people who are finding faith, friends and their future. It is inspiring to see what happens when we connect with grace in a place that is safe.
Right now, empty chairs can be harder to find. Children’s classrooms and nurseries are filled to the brim. While God’s grace isn’t running out, our space is. Our church family has made a decision to continue to welcome anyone who wants to experience a grace connection. That means we need to create more space.
Our plan is to double our meeting space, our children’s ministry space, our fellowship space and our parking space. As nice as the space will be, it will not compare to the work God will do in the lives of those who fill it.
As our facility expands, we are asking God to expand our heart, deepen our commitment and grow our faith?
I can’t wait to see what God will do NEXT!
