Well, 2012 is drawing to a close and we had some wonderful sharing during the Sunday Church Service when we heard from 3 sisters and 1 brother as they shared how God has been active in their lives this last year and gave thanksgiving to God for His awesome love and faithfulness. Their stories were truly heartwarming and encouraging and we give God all glory. Despite many challenges this last year, we have seen God’s guiding hand at work moving us in the direction of His will.
As we get started with 2013, it is only right that we begin by coming together for a Special New Year Service to commit the direction and work of the church and all its members to the Lord’s will. The Elders who have been seeking God’s face and guidance will share the burdens that God has placed in their hearts for the church. This is an important meeting as we want the church to be united in purpose and direction and we would want every member to understand the workings of the church and be excited by a common vision for 2013.
Of equal, if not greater importance, will be the Special First Church Prayer Meeting for 2013. Prayer is what God uses to bring our heart in line with His will and it is by prayer that we become of one mind and it is by prayer that God’s power is demonstrated in the furtherance of His Kingdom. If you have not been in the habit of attending the church prayer meeting, make 2013 the start of a new and powerful prayer life for you. See you there.
