15 Days…And Counting

It’s hard to believe that in 15 days we will be having our Groundbreaking Celebration Weekend! It was exactly 8 years ago, this week, that Martha and I took a step of faith and moved all of our belongings in a U-Haul truck to Johnston County, with a dream in our heart to start a life-giving, relevant church. Now here we are, 8 years later, getting ready to break ground on our new 2000 seat worship center, café, children’s ministry facility and student ministry center. I believe we need to take moments to reflect and remember what an awesome God we have… Nehemiah before he began to rebuild the wall around Jerusalem told his team,

“… Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your brothers, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your homes.”

Let’s remember what an Awesome God we have and ask God to use us to impact those around us.

I want to invite you to join Martha and I as we take 48 HOURS to pray and fast, Monday, Sept. 4 – Wednesday Sept. 6, as we get ready for our Groundbreaking Celebration. We are asking God to prepare our hearts and to use us to make a difference. Then we will come together First Wednesday, Sept. 6, at 7pm for a time of Worship, Prayer and Communion. I have a feeling this may be the most powerful First Wednesday ever!
