Give Thanks:

  • We are excited because it is the first time we have had more than 50 people in a service and it happened twice last month. While numbers can be a false indicator of success, it can also be an encouraging and invigorating for the people who are here. In addition to this, we just finished our first topical sermon series looking at the doctrines of creation, heaven, and hell. And while this was more challenging than I thought it would be, it was very well received by the congregation. In addition to this, we have had several families express interest in joining the church.

Trust God:

  • During this winter term, our small groups have felt like a real lull, and haven’t had the traction and momentum we have desired. We are about to relaunch the small groups this Spring and have it parallel our new sermon series. In addition to this, we have had to new opportunities for men of the church to connect and this has gone very well. We are excited about this season as it feels like a lot of the things are formalizing within the congregation.

Prayer Requests:

  • Heavenly Father, we thank you for the privilege to be able to come into your presence and plead with you about the things that concern us, and the things that make us excited. We pray right now for our church and all the other churches in the area that have been supporting us and coming alongside us during this work. We pray that you will bless us and them and that more of your kingdom will manifest in the PNW. We pray for the other churches of the presbytery and pray they will experience your grace and mercy in new and in profound ways! In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.
