We want to give you a quick update about our One-Year-Anniversary festivities…
Last week we had a great anniversary service, including a prayer from our sending church pastor (Will Senn) and a slide show. We made so many great memories this year! And it’s so good to take a look back and see the faithfulness of God every step of the way.
As part of our one-year celebration, we also continued a “kindness campaign” this week and passed out gift-cards and bags of food and candy. On them, we included a small card with our website and one simple message: “You are loved.” It was encouraging to get a message today via social media from someone who received a bag and wanted more information about the church.
This week we continued our celebration with a testimony service in the park, and our last picnic of the summer. What a joy to hear from our people about what Gospel Life Church means to them. The two things that came up constantly were these: We are truly a family. And we love the Word of God and the gospel it contains. What a privilege it is to be a part of a church that genuinely knows each other, loves each other, prays for each other, and points each other to Jesus. And what a joy to grow in our relationships with God together!
I could say so much more about each precious soul that God has brought to Gospel Life…but simply, we just feel incredibly blessed to be a part of this specific family of God. We LOVE our little church. And we plead with God to protect us, to grow us in every way, to be humble, unified, and ever closer to Jesus.
Thank you all for your investment in GLC, and please pray that God would continue to provide our needs…monetarily and in every way. He will. He’s the best Father.
