A Message from our Pastor
The second “D” in our “3D” strategy is “discipleship”.
Summer is a time when our children and youth especially grow in their faith through a number of opportunities. Our recently completed Vacation Bible school at our downtown campus saw not only decisions (the first “D” in our “3Ds”) for Christ, but also growth as children learned about Christ, His love and His work in the world.
Some of our students recently returned from an event known as Student Leadership University, a period of time where students who have shown either leadership qualities or the desire to help others are given needed tools to accomplish these goals. I think we can all be excited about the coming ministries in which these future leaders will be engaged.
I also want to take this time to again salute our campus pastors for our satellite campuses. Each one has been engaged this summer in various activities including recruitment for new volunteers, celebrating the volunteers they have, welcoming their respective communities and being faithful in the ministry of their individual campuses. The trust we have placed in these men to shepherd our respective campuses has been well placed.
I close with two special words of “thanks” –First to our ministry staff for filling in for me this past Sunday. Depending on where you worshipped at any of our four campuses, you had the opportunity to hear several different members of our staff. I am grateful to serve alongside them.
Second, thanks to all of you who make up our one church in four locations for your gracious recognition of me, and my family, for our seven years of ministry together. I love our church and look forward to many more years of service together.
See you soon.
