Noah learned of God’s faithfulness after building the ark for 100 years. Esther knew that the invisible God pulls the strings of history after she spoke in faith to the King of Persia. Peter saw Jesus’ raw power after he took his own step on the water. Hudson Taylor witnessed God’s saving purposes after he left his homeland and built a life in China for 51 years. Those who planted Cornerstone Church didn’t see a single convert until after they left the safety of their former church family.
What steps of faith is God asking us to take? What will happen after we do?
One piece in that puzzle is our church-wide seminar, “How God’s Church Grows,” on Saturday February 8th, from 10AM-3PM. You can sign up in the church building’s main foyer. You can read more and sign up online today at this web address: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/how-gods-church-grows-church-planting-retreat-weekend-tickets-89405499255
The event is for our entire church family. The elders desire each person in our church to grow in their understanding and role in church growth and multiplication. Come with your heart open to the LORD’s leading in your life.
Bonus update: Pastor Gary and I have selected Meegan Dyrland as the church’s new administrative assistant. Meegan has a track record of great organizational savvy, a strong work ethic, and experience in administrative work in a local church. She’ll begin the first week of February, with the plan of working most of her 10 hours per week on Wednesdays, and then using Thursday or Friday to finish up her other tasks. Pray for her transition into this new role; when you see her, thank her for joining the staff team!
For the joy, despite the cost, for the family,
