A lot of our lives is spent doing the SAME things. After all, we have reoccurring responsibilities. Faithfulness is the term the Bible uses for this.
There comes a time when we are called to do the NEXT thing.
This is not a call to stop doing the regular things. Rather, it is a reminder that we don’t have to be limited by them. In fact, the NEXT thing is possible because of faithfulness. You have faithfully prayed, served, and given generously. As a result our current facility is used three times on Sunday (and throughout the week) to connect people to – and help people grow in – God’s grace.
Every week we hear stories of people daring to hope again, finding freedom, and feeling loved and accepted. And if this was all God accomplished through us, we would be glad and grateful.
But with God there is always a NEXT. There are still individuals and families who have not been exposed to the grace of God. There are still people who have disconnected from faith and have not yet found their way back home. Since God is not done with them, He is not done with us.
Our mission is to provide a safe place for people to find authentic faith, risk real relationships and discover the future God has planned for them.
Our problem – we can’t provide a safe place if we are out of space.
Beginning on the first Sunday in October our church family will begin to take the NEXT step. We cannot do this alone. The faith and finances necessary for a project of this size will require each and every person to dare to pray bold prayers and boldly respond to God’s direction.
NEXT reminds us of God’s unfailing love and unwavering effort to reach each and every one.
NEXT reminds us that our dreams can be brighter than our memories. NEXT reminds us that the best is yet to come.
