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.

"Exposed: When Jesus Meets People Like Us - Posers" - 9/17/23

Sermon by Jeff Davenport

Luke 19:1–10 (Listen)

Jesus and Zacchaeus

19:1 He entered Jericho and was passing through. And behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus. He was a chief tax collector and was rich. And he was seeking to see who Jesus was, but on account of the crowd he could not, because he was small in stature. So he ran on ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see him, for he was about to pass that way. And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, hurry and come down, for I must stay at your house today.” So he hurried and came down and received him joyfully. And when they saw it, they all grumbled, “He has gone in to be the guest of a man who is a sinner.” And Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, “Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor. And if I have defrauded anyone of anything, I restore it fourfold.” And Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, since he also is a son of Abraham. 10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.”
