Church Planter: Nate and Shannon Walker

Give Thanks:

  • I am thankful that this is the first summer I could take a vacation and really feel like the church was fine without me. I am thankful for the elders and those who are serving in our church.
  • Also, I am thankful for what the Lord is doing on the Lummi reservation and the ways our church is being moved towards ministering to them. We did a Saturday work party out there where we built two ramps on some homes of elderly/disabled people, pressure washed houses, etc.

Trust God :

  • I am a little worried as our church grows about what that will mean to the culture of the church. We may need to go to two services in January and this would be difficult and not desirable. Also, there are logistical challenges we face as we grow as well. It is becoming more and more difficult for me to feel like I know what is happening in everyone’s lives.

Prayer Requests :

  • Please pray that the Lord would show us how is calling us to minister to and make disciples among the Lummi. I sense that we have to contextualize our ministry (including my preaching) if we realistically expect them to become a part of our church. This is an exciting challenge, but one I don’t feel prepared for.
