The Lord Our Provider


= total pledged by 309 families over the next 3 years to our Building on the Legacy Vision. (That number is $14k or so higher than the number announced on Sunday because a few more families have pledged!) That's a lot of money and well exceeds our goal of $2,000,000.

We take this as the Lord's strong confirmation of our vision and direction. It's been a wonderful and challenging process. I've learned so much and been so blessed by the Lord's people and their generous giving. My vision and faith as a Pastor has been greatly stretched.

So where are we at on the implementation of the vision:

Our Annex Renewal Plans have been submitted to the city for approval. Please join us prayer for a quick approval process. Pray for wisdom as we plan for the loss of that vital space during the construction phase.

We are currently in the process of contacting adjacent property owners to see if they are interested in possibly selling now or down the road. Pray that the Lord grants us favor and good neighbor relations in the process. Pray for a miracle provision of a nearby property.

We are actively exploring parking possibilities as we better define city parking requirements and congregational needs. Pray for creativity and wisdom in this process.

We will do our best to keep the congregation informed as things develop and unfold.
