Pretty much every year in September and January our church does a Kickoff. This is a time of growth and excitement, a time where we have a lot of fun together as a church family. It is also a time where we challenge people to follow the biblical command to invite other people to experience God’s hope.
Now our church is already growing (averaging over 350 each Sunday), and we are planning on doing a building campaign sometime early next year, and we are actually running out of space. So should we really be encouraging you to invite other people? Yes! Definitely yes! We are people of faith: we trust God and know that He will take care of the problems – as long as we keep following and obeying Him. So who can you invite? Pray, listen, and invite!
We are going to be growing in Undaunted Faith: truth, trust, leadership, and justice. We will be looking at stories from the Bible and history to find inspiration to stand up and speak out. We will also be eating together, playing games, and having fun – because the joy of the Lord is our strength. This is the perfect time to encourage people to come back to church or to come to church for the first time ever. We love to have fun, we love to go deep, and we love following Jesus. And I love this church family!
Covenant Grove Church has existed for nine years now (happy birthday!), and I believe that God is just getting started with us. I am excited for another great year of ministry together. There are more challenges ahead – but our God is bigger, and He is making us stronger. Keep running after Him with undaunted faith!
