2/9/17 – What A Great Response!

IndividualSheetWe’ve been praying that God would make us strong and courageous. He answered in an incredible way this past weekend!

At our Super Celebration Sunday, people committed $4.3 million over the next three years. Wow!

It’s exciting and humbling to see how the Lord is moving many people to help build our first permanent church campus and GO BEYOND for the sake of His Kingdom.

That $4.3 million total represents many generous and courageous steps of faith. Thank you to each of you who responded with a commitment! We know there are some who shared that they want to pray and come to a decision this coming week–and others who couldn’t be there for worship this Sunday.

Everyone is still welcome and invited to make a commitment the next two Sundays or mail it to the office. On February 19, we will pray over the commitments during worship and dedicate them to God’s glory.

Take a moment to praise God right now and pray with me for our church:

“We always thank God for all of you and continually mention you in our prayers. We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thessalonians 1:2-3)

I’m proud of our church–that so many have been seeking the Lord’s guidance in this spiritual journey. It’s exciting and encouraging because that is a key part of how God is getting us prepared for the future.

Thanks for your partnership in ministry at this pivotal time!

New Series this Sunday

I’m kicking off a new message series this weekend called “Defining Moments.” Over the next few weeks, we’ll dive into several stories in the Bible when people had a conversation or encounter with Jesus. In many cases, that moment impacted their future in a significant way (when they were open to it)!

My prayer is that it will encourage each of us to hear God’s voice and be open to the Holy Spirit’s guidance. We live in a busy world where it’s easy to miss the significance of how God wants to shape our future.

Invite a friend and join us for a great weekend!

Yours in Christ,

Pastor Nate

P.S. Our children’s and youth teams are excited about the GO BEYOND response of our students as well! They gave $1,201.59 toward their coin challenge, and there were seven different Apex youth who personally committed $1,000 or more on Sunday. Amazing!
