To my Living Grace friends and family…
I am bursting with joy today and I just had to tell you why. We sang 10,000 Reasons last Sunday which encouraged us to remember all the ways God has blessed us in the past, present and will in the future. Well, I would like to share 4 of 10,000 things I see God doing in our midst at LGC.
1. Our youth ministry on Wednesday nights – Last Wednesday there were over 50 students and leaders attending our ReFuel service. This is tremendous and I am so proud of Mike Humphress and his team for their leadership in reaching students. Reaching teenagers with the Gospel must continue to be a primary ministry of this church.
2. Our Sunday morning worship attendance in Sept & Oct – We are up on average nearly 30 in attendance from the summer. Many of these are college students from our Awaken Ministry, which I am so thankful for. Reaching young adult/college-aged students must continue to be a strong avenue of ministry for Living Grace. They bring so much energy and talent.
3. Our missions focus this fall – So far we have given to the UNITED clothing drive, Change for a Change which digs wells in Africa is happening right now, and starting Nov. 18 – Jan.15 we are going to be collecting can goods for local food pantries. We are making a difference in our community and around the world in the name of Jesus. So proud!
4. Finally, our unity as a body of believers – There is a great sense of togetherness and unity in the house. We come from a lot of different backgrounds, paths, histories and ways of “doing” church, but there is a consistent unity in putting Jesus first in everything we do. I am thankful and inspired by this.
What are you most happy about for Living Grace? Maybe we can share 10,000 reasons together.
