Don’t Get Tired

The Bible tells us not to get tired of doing good, for we will reap at the proper time if we don’t give up (Galatians 6:9).

Those words could have been written for our current capital campaign and building expansion. We have already opened a major part of our building. If you have visited the new Preschool/Children’s Complex, you know what a functional and impressive building it is.

At the same time, we are now renovating both the east and west wings for Bible Study space. Those renovations are moving well.

Soon (at least by Easter, maybe before) we will move into the new Commons Area and Worship Center. Those areas are moving along nicely and are going to be wonderful additions which will allow us to grow our worship attendance and experience the blessings of being connected to other  believers and newcomers in our Commons Area.

All of this is exciting to see and experience. As I have told many of you, this is a blessing to be a part of. I’ve told my grandsons to enjoy this experience because it is rare.

I thank God for  you and for the church.

But there is a danger. It is easy to get weary.

I want to encourage you (and myself) to move forward with your faithfulness to God in finances. We need to finish the task. We need to complete our pledges, and we need to make sure we follow God’s plan for regular tithes and offerings.

While the FORWARD! Building campaign is important so is our regular giving. It is through our budget offerings that we provide for missions, evangelism, and benevolence. Our recent Trunk or Treat was financed through your faithful weekly giving.

It’s easy to give up. Let’s don’t!

Verse of the Day

[The Birth of Jesus Foretold] In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.” — Luke 1:26-28 (NIV)
