Hope is such an encouraging word! Hope is what keeps us going. It helps us get out of bed each new day, because there is something worth living for. Hope has eluded so many people. Maybe it’s because they looked for hope in a relationship that let them down, or a career that left them wanting. But reality is still the same... everyone needs hope. We believe that hope’s foundation is found in something bigger than ourselves. We need each other, but together we need God. To that end, we believe God is calling us to do something tangible about that right here in our communities!
 
The population of our immediate area is growing, a growth that is projected to increase. With that growth, God will introduce us to new friends who are looking for hope. We want to make room for them. We have been talking this year about how we can “make room for God” in our lives. A big part of that is making room for the people God sends to us. Making room to welcome them. Making room to get to know them. Making room that is easily accessible, especially for those with mobility issues or special needs.
 
For that reason, we are proposing the construction of a Welcome Center and a complete ADA mobility upgrade for our entire facility. We are calling it...
 
Building Hope – Building Hospitality – Building for Heaven
 
Romans 12:12–13 (ESV) “Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.”
 
In those verses, the Apostle Paul was talking to believers in the church about how to behave like Christians. In fact, that’s the actual heading in my Bible... “Behave like Christians.” We hope you will join us on this journey to build hope, hospitality, and Heaven. Let’s do all we can to make Heaven as crowded as possible! And until then, let’s bring the hope and hospitality of Jesus Christ to the people God sends our way.

Thank you for prayerfully considering how God may want you or your family to participate. Pledge cards are available at the Welcome Center and will help us to estimate and plan this project. 

You can give a one-time gift or set up recurring donations ... chose "Welcome Center & ADA Upgrade" on the pull-down menu of funds.

"Gospel-Centered Courage" 07/10/2022

Sermon by Jeff Davenport

2 Timothy 1:8–18 (Listen)

Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord, nor of me his prisoner, but share in suffering for the gospel by the power of God, who saved us and called us to1 a holy calling, not because of our works but because of his own purpose and grace, which he gave us in Christ Jesus before the ages began,2 10 and which now has been manifested through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel, 11 for which I was appointed a preacher and apostle and teacher, 12 which is why I suffer as I do. But I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed, and I am convinced that he is able to guard until that day what has been entrusted to me.3 13 Follow the pattern of the sound4 words that you have heard from me, in the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. 14 By the Holy Spirit who dwells within us, guard the good deposit entrusted to you.

15 You are aware that all who are in Asia turned away from me, among whom are Phygelus and Hermogenes. 16 May the Lord grant mercy to the household of Onesiphorus, for he often refreshed me and was not ashamed of my chains, 17 but when he arrived in Rome he searched for me earnestly and found me—18 may the Lord grant him to find mercy from the Lord on that day!—and you well know all the service he rendered at Ephesus.
