Happy New Year from Pastor Joel & family!
Today is the 1st day of a brand New Year and that always brings with it a certain excitement for what lies ahead.
It is also a great time to look back and reflect on what happened in the previous year. Although there were certainly days of frustration and struggle, we have had another great year as a church.
- We celebrated our 10th anniversary of Global Focus and once again committed well over $200,000 to see the kingdom of God advanced around the world.
- We saw teams travel to both Cameroon and Uganda and have a great impact.
- We had an amazing Come & Dine in partnership with Souls Harbour, CityKidz
and two other churches in the core of our city.
- Our church has grown in attendance and we have seen an increase in volunteers in several ministries.
These are just a few of the highlights.
There are so many stories of numerous individuals being used by the Lord in all sorts of different ways and also of people being transformed by the love and the power of God. It is these stories of transformation that make any days of difficulty we may go through, worth it.
The scripture says in Galatians 6:9, ‘Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper
time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.’
This has been a church who has persevered in her history and I believe we are starting to see the beginning of a great harvest.
As we look forward to 2017, let us re-commit ourselves to doing the good works that Christ has called us to. Together we can accomplish so much more than any one of us could alone. The best is still yet to come!
Angela and I want to take this time to thank you for your partnership, prayers and your love. As your pastors, we consider it a privilege to lead such a dedicated, visionary group of people and we pray God’s blessing upon your families and everything you put your hand to this year.
Love, Joel & Angela, Eden, Asia, and Jael
