Hab 2:2 - Then the LORD answered me and said, "Record the vision And inscribe it on tablets, That the one who reads it may run.

Prov 29:18 - 18Where there is no vision, the people are unrestrained, But happy is he who keeps the law.

Let’s Build a Fire: Acts 2:42 They devoted themselves to

  • Proclamation - The Apostle’s Teaching
  • People - the fellowship, the breaking of bread
  • Presence - Prayer

I think it is a good idea to talk about where we want to go together this year

The Vision has not changed but we do want to move FORWARD and continue to grow in these three things!

  • Proclamation
    • Inside the church - 
      • We will be doing taking the “Believe” journey this year
      • Weekend intensives - specific topic studies
    • Outside the church
      • Revive Go Teams
      • Other ministry opportunities
        • Youth ministry beginning in February
        • Youth For Christ - soon
        • Missions expansion
          • Trip this summer - Jan 29th
          • raise more money support more missionaries
        • Turning Point
        • Jail Ministry
    • It is my prayer that we become a people who are contagious about our faith - that we welcome people into our family constantly
  • People
    • Living Rooms
    • Carry Ins
    • Other fun activities 
    • Battle Buddies - One person you are connected to and accountable with
  • Presence
    • We need to establish a community where we let people know when there is a need AND we respond to those needs with prayer first and practicality second
    • continue Warfare prayer and stand in the gap
    • upcoming prayer conference
    • Monthly Worship nights

Through all of this it is my prayer and our goal as a church leadership team to double in size by this time next year.

I cannot do this on my own:

  • Giving
    • we need to achieve financial independence
      • Our weekly budget is $2500 - our regular weekly offering has been hovering right under $2000 each week.
      • we have had a lot of help this last year - First Assembly $2000 per month - that is being cut in half now.
    • we are going to pass the plate every week
    • we are going to continue to take a monthly offering for the food bank
    • we are also going to take a monthly offering specifically for missions
  • Volunteerism
    • More than anything I need new LEADERSHIP
      • I need you asking the Lord where you are supposed to plug in
      • I need you asking the Lord what you are supposed to lead
