A Purposeful Reminder
Whoever gives thought to the word will discover good, and blessed is he who trusts in the LORD.” Proverbs 16:20, ESV. This was the verse on the front of the bulletin this past weekend as we celebrated “Discovery Sunday”. It is exciting to discover the new things that God has for us as we follow Christ. As we enter into the Fall, I believe we are moving forward as a church. We are growing warmer through fellowship. Many Sundays after service there are pockets of people talking around the sanctuary and foyer, going into deeper relationship with one another. May we continue to be a safe place for people to let their guard down and to know what it’s like to live in Christian community. As we have begun our small groups we are hungry to grow deeper through discipleship. Jesus said to “go and make disciples”. That takes time, study, discussion…may we grow deep in the riches of God’s Word. We are growing stronger through worship. We are building a team to lead us in blended (both old and new) worship to meet people where they are but also challenge us to be more passionate in our worship. As one person very wrongly put it, “God bless the preamble before the sermon”. I believe we are capturing what it means to use our voices to connect with an Almighty God. God is seeking worshippers. I pray He finds us! We are growing broader through ministry. Each person serving in a ministry of the church is the goal. There’s lots to be done for God’s glory. And we work and pray that our church would grow larger through evangelism. This past Sunday was a learning experience in many ways, but I am encouraged by how many people talk about who they invited to church. That’s awesome! Sharing the Gospel is not someone else’s job, it involves each of us. Onward.

If you have a purpose in life, then that is just what you need to do. I understand that not everyone can dare to dream, but that doesn't mean that we shouldn't. If you know what you can do, then you just have to get the drive to do it. If you ask me, life is all just about doing what it is that you can. I hope that you can make a life that you can be proud of.
