I am really excited about what God is doing in our church right now! It was so incredible watching God work in the lives of people this weekend as we surrendered our fears and insecurities to a good, sovereign, and faithful God! When we link the truths that God is good and God is sovereign (In complete control and the ultimate authority!) we are able to live in the freedom that Jesus promised! The fact that He’s done EVERYTHING He’s ever promised is icing on the cake! Even though we will never understand Him we know we can trust Him because He is GOOD, SOVEREIGN, AND FAITHFUL!!
It was great to see so many of our college students back this weekend! Last night I found out that we had 50 college students sign up for Connect Groups at our College Bible study!! THAT’S AWESOME! The amount of energy these young men and women bring is absolutely amazing! We are so thankful for the contribution that you all make to the ministry going on at Connection. When I look at the next generation of leaders I am encouraged and excited about the potential in the Church! By the way…if you’ve been looking for a ministry opportunity, there are about 21,000 of them that just pulled into town this weekend!
I want to give you all a “heads up” on something coming up on October 1st. Many of you remember the outreach we did on August 29th of last year to wrap up the series Going Mobile. We are doing something very similar again this year on Saturday, October 1st! We will be going into the community to do construction, clean-up, landscaping, nursing home visits, children’s ministry, and pretty much anything else we can find that needs to be done! Please pray with me that we would put AT LEAST 500 people in the community that day to bless those in need! Can you imagine the impact that 500 people working just 6 hours that day would have on Statesboro? It’s going to be an awesome opportunity to show this community we really care about them by showing Jesus to them!
I truly believe that the GREATEST DAYS OF MINISTRY ARE AHEAD OF US!! Pray for those you know that are far from God and invite them to join us at our weekly worship experience on Sunday mornings. Invest in their lives and invite them to a relationship with Jesus! Then encourage them along the way! I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE EVERYONE SUNDAY!!
