Dear Beloved Church Family and Friends,
We hope this email finds you well and blessed. We are thrilled to share the joy and excitement of the wonderful worship time we had yesterday. The presence of the Lord was truly felt among us, and hearts were lifted in praise as we gathered to glorify His name. The voices of worship echoed through the sanctuary, filling it with praises and adoration.
As we continue to journey together as a church, we want to remind you of the message that the Lord is speaking to us: to be a moving church. The Lord is challenging us to take the gospel beyond the walls of our church and into the streets, sharing His love and grace with those we encounter. Our mission is to connect people to God’s transformative power, bringing hope and salvation to our community.
The book of Acts resonates with this call to action. Acts 1:8 (ESV) reminds us, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” This is our mandate, and it’s an invitation to step out in faith, knowing that God’s power is with us every step of the way.
- Small Groups Launch: We are excited to announce that our small groups will be launching next week. If you haven’t signed up yet, there’s still time! Small groups are an incredible opportunity to connect, grow, and deepen your faith alongside fellow believers. To sign up, contact the church office at (616) 527-4140 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Men’s Ministry Camping Trip: September 15th – 16th… Calling all men of the church! Our upcoming men’s trip is just around the corner. It’s a fantastic chance to build friendships, dive into God’s Word, and grow together as men of faith. You can sign up at the connection point in the church foyer. The cost is $25, and if you have any questions, feel free to reach out to John Cahill.
- Prayer Ministry: We also want to extend a warm invitation to you to join us for a time of prayer on Sundays at 9am in the prayer room downstairs. Prayer is a powerful way to connect with God and seek His guidance and blessings for our church, its leadership, its ministries, and our community.
In conclusion, we want to challenge you to embrace the movement that God is stirring in our hearts. Let us rise up as a unified body, taking the love of Christ beyond these walls and into our neighborhoods, workplaces, and communities. Together, we can make an impact that will resonate for eternity.
Thank you for being a vital part of our church family. Your commitment and dedication are deeply appreciated. Let’s continue to seek God’s guidance, pray for one another, and actively participate in this beautiful movement of faith.
Because They Have Not Heard,
Pastor Joshua Cahill
