Good morning and Welcome to Church! It’s early Thursday morning around 7am and I’m sitting in my office reflecting on what an amazing week this has been.
Last night we had another HUGE night at Awana. We continue to average about 120+ kids here each Wednesday night from Preschool all the way up through High School. And, we also have about 50+ leaders and volunteers here ministering to all the kids and their families. By God’s grace, we get to pour the love of Jesus into those homes for 30 weeks during every school year. I encourage everyone who can, to get involved. It’s hard work, but it is the work of Gospel ministry.
Then, as I was thinking about last night, I started thinking about our Youth Sundays during the month of March and I was thinking about all the youth and college kids that came forward as we prayed for them that first Sunday of the month. Can you believe how that ministry has grown? Isn’t it an incredible blessing to see those kids use their talents and gifts in Church for God’s glory? We have so many people here who are committed to pouring their lives and the love of Jesus into those kids. My heart is just overjoyed.
All of this is made possible because of your faithfulness; the people of FBC who give SO generously of your time and money. This is the legacy that we are building! We are investing into young people’s lives and it’s hard work, but the rewards and blessings are too great to be counted.
We give to serve the needs of today, but we also give to serve the needs of those who come after us.
In our country there is a lot of talk of how we will turn this nation back to the Lord. Well….this is the answer. We are doing it. We are in the harvest, and it is plentiful.
Thank you to all of you who give so generously of your time and your money. I pray God’s richest blessing upon you for your faithfulness to the Kingdom of God and His work. I pray that God will “throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.”
All for Jesus,
