We are having a wonderful summer here at Family Worship Center; I trust you and your family are too! This is always a special time of year when kids are out of school and families are making an effort to spend extra time together. Maybe you are traveling on vacation, going to the beach, or simply taking some time to relax and recharge your physical batteries. Just don’t forget that we all need a spiritual charging as well. Take some extra time this season to get in God’s presence and allow Him to recharge you spiritually!
On another exciting note, I want to take a moment and thank everyone who has jumped on board with the pavilion-park project, Growing Family. There has been a tremendous response in contributions and pledges towards this exciting addition. We are hoping to start construction very soon! Once completed, this space will benefit our young people on a weekly basis and everyone at FWC for a variety of church wide events we have planned.
Thank you for your faithfulness and generosity, as we continue to grow in every area that God
I also want to thank everyone that helped make VBS a tremendous success. With all of our volunteers’ hard work and hours spent serving we were able to impact hundreds of kids with the power of the Gospel. This is something that I love to see because the Word of God planted in kids at a young age will work in them and lead them towards Jesus for the rest of their lives!
Thank you for all you do, your prayers, your faithfulness, and your constant support in every way. We all have an important role to play in what God is doing at Family Worship Center. Words cannot express how thankful I am for you, and I pray constantly that just as it is in God’s house, so shall it be in your house!
You are loved,
This is always a fun time of the year! All the kids are out of school and families are making plans to go on vacation, visit with out-of-town family, or just go to the beach for a weekend. Speaking as grandparents, Bea and I can’t wait for the grandkids to come and visit; there is nothing we look forward to more! I can only imagine that God views His children in much the same way. He loves to spend time with us.
The summer never slows down here at Family Worship Center. We have many great opportunities for you and your family to gather in God’s house to worship and fellowship together. As you see we have exciting events planned; one of them being VBS for our kids. It will be happening this month, and it will be bigger than ever!
I want to also thank everyone who has jumped on board with our new Joy Center pavilion-park project, Growing Family. This building project is truly bigger than any one person and we have seen a tremendous response thus far. As I shared with you on Family and Friends Day, this new pavilion-park will be a huge blessing to our youth, but will also be something that benefits everyone who calls Family Worship Center home. We are planning to break ground very soon!
I look forward to seeing each and every one of your smiling faces this summer! It is a joy to gather with you and your family each week as we worship together in God’s House.
See you soon and often,
As we get ready for Summer there is a growing sense of excitement! School will be out soon, and I know all of our young people are beaming with anticipation. Summer is such a great time for families, there is nothing like spending time together and growing together as a family.
In the same way, we also grow together as a church family. Every time we gather together in God’s house to worship, fellowship, and hear His word, we are walking in obedience to God’s plan and direction for our lives. Hebrews 10:25 in the Message Bible says, “Let’s keep a firm grip on the promises that keep us going. He always keeps His Word. Let’s see how inventive we can be in encouraging love and helping out, not avoiding worshiping together as some do but spurring each other on, especially as we see the big Day approaching.”
We have so many great opportunities to come together as family. I personally look forward to joining with you each and every week to worship and celebrate what God is doing in
Speaking of celebrating, don’t forget that this month we get to celebrate all the moms! You won’t want to miss our special Mother’s Day service as Bea will be joining me in sharing a message for the entire family. All I can say is get ready and hang on, she always brings a fun and inspiring word!
I pray continually that you and your family will be blessed in every area and that we will grow in the things of the Lord as we seek Him together.
As we launch into Spring time there is a sense of newness and life in the air. But more importantly this is the time of year we get to celebrate Easter and the new life that Jesus gave us when he died and rose from the grave. Oh what a glorious day! I love the words of the Apostle Paul in 2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”
Jesus, our Lord and Savior, gives us new life, and in Him we live and move and have our being! At the forefront of Easter is the greatest miracle that anyone can ever receive, the gift of Salvation. Jesus made a way for you and I to be forgiven and freed from sin. But we must remember that with this gift comes responsibility. We have a part to play; there is a real heaven to gain and a real hell to shun. Yes, our salvation is by grace, but this gift of grace enables us to live a life free from sin. Just remember that grace will always lead us to righteousness! This is the reason we rejoice and celebrate during this special time of the year.
We have so many exciting things planned this month at Family Worship Center. I hope you are as excited as I am! Each of us has a part to play in what God is doing in OUR church. We continue to see lives changed and hearts touched on a weekly basis.
I want to personally thank you for everything you do. With your help serving, praying, and supporting in every area we will continue to see great things happen!
Your Friend and Pastor,
This month marks the beginning of Spring and with that comes a sense of new life. 2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” There is nothing that excites me more than seeing people come to Jesus and being made new! We are so blessed each week to see people make decisions for Christ. It is the highlight of everything we do.
In addition, I am also thrilled to see how God is working in our Sunday services. From the very beginning of Family Worship Center, God clearly instructed me to “mix the old with the new,” and to this day we are still doing just that! We want to reach every person we can with the Gospel and a touch of God’s presence.
I want to thank you for helping me contend for the Spirit every time we gather.
We have some exciting things coming this month; there really is something for everyone. I hope you will stay plugged in and hooked up! It is an honor to serve with each and every one of you that God has placed here at Family Worship Center.
See you soon and often!
