God bless you all!
How is everyone?
I am writing to say hello and give you an update on the current status of the Church.
COVID-19 and civil unrest has affected the every-day-norms for all of us. I'm sure you have had to make several adjustments to your lives. some easy and some not so much. never-the-less we are overcoming. You are an overcomer and were born for such a time as this! amazing!
The wonderful thing about being in Christ is that we have a hope and peace that surpasses all understanding. In Him we find rest and wisdom for today and the days to come.
My humble Observation
We are living in the fulfillment of that which has been asked for. The body of Christ is coming into a place of Life-style changes. We are seeing the manifestation of the Mature Sons and Daughters of God arise. People of the Kingdom are positioning themselves to serve God in their workplaces, neighborhoods, schools, and the World Wide Web, making an impact and being influencers, which is being Salt & Light.
Church attendance may be affected drastically for a while but it is expected that a wave of glory will hit the earth like we've never seen before. Will we be ready? will we have a building to fill? or will we be a Remote church permanently? These are questions that lay heavy in our hearts and we desire to do the Will of the Father. Whatever may come, I am confident that Pastor and I will humbly say yes. My hope is that I can look around and see all of you still standing firm and joyfully alongside us. Together we can be ready to receive the greatest harvest that History has yet to tell. It's been promised and we believe. Like Wonder-filled children we look up to heaven and say, Come Lord Jesus!
Pastor Nate and I would like to thank all of you for being faithful to the Lord in your giving. Every month we have been able to meet the budget, although it's been by a very thin margin.
Pray for RED. Be encouraged and encourage others to give offerings and tithes. I get the impression that people forget to give since they are not in the building. Or some people don't give because they don't know how to give online. I understand and in no way would I judge anyone for this, however, bills and wages still need to be paid. If you are only giving Tithes it is important that you also consider giving an offering. Offerings are the cherry on top when it comes to giving in the Kingdom of God. It's the actual sacrifice. It's the part that costs us something. Remember, God is after that which grips our heart. Let's not allow money to become an obstacle for this ministry. It's never been and we don't need to start now.
So,will you go before the Lord and ask how We (the Body) can together, make an impact in the finances of this organization? Pastor and I are praying for an innovative idea. A sustainable, Life-style change for the Church as we enter the New Era of Kingdom Living.
Let's rally together and be accountable to each other in this season by stewarding well the ministry that's in our hands. We are in this together.
In Christ and For Him,
Pastors Nate and Brisy
