April 5, 2022
From the Pastor
Sunday was another great day in the Lord as the youth filled the choir loft and led in worship to close out their DNOW weekend! We rejoiced with Abby Wilson upon her public surrender to vocational ministry, and with Owen Cloy upon his profession of faith in Jesus Christ. Luke Johnson, who was the DNOW event speaker, preached 2 powerful messages (a different message for each service). Thank you to everyone who volunteered, donated, prayed, and sacrificed (think “host home”) to make DNOW 2022 a success!

Folks, I am humbled and grateful for the great turnout Sunday evening as the Concept Committee gave their recommendation for building a gym. Their presentation was professional and inspiring, and your responsiveness was exactly what a church business meeting should be. The comments made were encouraging, and the questions were the type they needed to be for a project of this size, cost, and importance. I have heard over and over from many who were present that a sweet spirit permeated the entire business meeting. I agree. That “sweet spirit” was the Holy Spirit who made His presence known. And, I believe that was further confirmation that we are proceeding in accordance with God’s will. The motion to build a gym at an estimated cost of $975,000, to commence when the money is in hand, was made by the Committee. No second was necessary since the motion came from a committee. The vote will be by secret ballot during both worship services on Sunday, April 24th. Donations will be accepted with a target date of Sunday, May 29th. To date, $265,565 has already been given, leaving a balance of $709,435 that is needed to begin construction. If we have the money by May 29th, the Trustees will be able to proceed with entering into a contract with Brannon Clymer Construction. If not, the money given will be held in a designated “gym” line item until such time as we have the money to build. However, keep in mind that the longer it takes us to accumulate the money, the higher the cost. We need to do this now! I believe we can, but it will take every household giving according to their ability. What is the amount that represents your ability to give to this project? Ask God. I believe with all my heart that He will direct us all such that we can step out on faith and behold the awesome power of the Lord!

Don’t forget the Living Lord’s Supper presentation, along with observance of the Lord’s Supper, in both services this Sunday. This is a great time to invite your friends and neighbors. Please be especially sensitive to those in your circle of influence who don’t normally attend a church. I can tell you from my personal experience that people will respond to an invitation to an event, where they might not respond to an invitation to just come to church. Please pray for our services, both this Sunday and Easter!

You are loved!
