Monday, August 2, 2021 Life is best when lived with a community of believers – Get in a Community Group!
From Pastor Roger…
This last Sabbath, Pastor Tyler Long presented us with a message of a mission statement and ended with his mission statement, challenging us to write our own mission statement. Here’s what he presented.
Acts 11:24 (NIV): 24 He was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and faith, and a great number of people were brought to the Lord.
This was the focus on Baranabbas in the book of Acts. Tyler told us that is what he wants to be known for.
Years ago, I wrote my own personal mission statement as well. It can be summarized by this: “Lead others to Christ, through listening relationships.” This simply focuses on leading people to Jesus and how important relationships are in all of that mix.
Everything we do is focused on relationships. This is why our mission statement for the church is Reach Up in Worship(relationship to God),Reach Deep in Discipleship(relationship with others in Community Groups) and Reach Out in Evangelism(relationship with other people who don’t yet know Jesus).
I encourage you to do exactly what Tyler said, and spend some time with God and your Bible and see what you might be called to do as a personal mission.

Let us know how the LIVE STREAM is going, please. We have made some improvements to the system, increased our upload speed and we need to hear from you if it is improved on still struggling. Thanks for staying with us. Thanks for your support. The best place to watch it seems to be from our website rather than from Facebook.
As stated above, The Youth and Young Adults will be doing two evangelistic seminars this fall. One will be at the Whipple Creek Church and the other is at the Healing Hope Church, in Gresham. These will be happening at the same time as our seminar with Tyler Long. Please pray for our kids that the Holy Spirit will continue to inspire them and continue to lead them into His calling, His work and His mission.
