Pray for Your Church

Dear Church family -
 
Our ONE PRAYER message for this weekend is "Lord, Make Us Dangerous".  This is also the day where we make the final choice for The Community Fellowship and the House of Prayer to become one.  This is a time that we must seek the Lord, trust His leading and be one.  It is not easy to be one.  The reason it is not easy is because we have declared war on our enemy, Satan, and said YES to God.
 
I am excited, in a big way, about the message for Sunday morning.   You will be hearing one of the best communicators in the world.  We will be challenged to dig deeper, work harder and trust God more.  It takes all of us to be the church and have the impact that God has called us to be and to have.
 
As we have said earlier, God is preparing us to be more effective to reach more people for Him.  Sunday evening at 6 pm there will be two meetings for the people of both churches.  At the House of Prayer, their members are asked to come for a business meeting where they will discuss becoming a part of The Community and decide on the process.  At The Community Fellowship, there will be a town hall meeting where we will discuss the process of how the two churches become one.  These are important meetings, and you are an important part of your church's decision to follow God's direction for the future.
 
What an honor it is for me to be your pastor.  I pray that God will unify us in ways we have not even thought of yet.  That means we have to join our hearts together in walking with Jesus and join our hands in the work that He has given us to do.  I am excited about the future.  I pray you are as well.
 
Please know that I am open to conversations and questions.  Don't hesitate to call on me at any time.  My home phone number is 647-4749; the church phone is 647-TCF1 (8231); my mobile phone is 732-7749.  This process that we are about to engage in will be so profitable, but it will also have some things that we need to talk through and work together on.
 
By choosing to work together, we will be demonstrating the love of God to our community in bigger ways than we ever have before.  I am praying for each of you!
