Looking Back with Praise & Ahead with Excitement

Posted by Eric Hoheisel on Tuesday, October 30, 2012
Any organization worth its salt should, on a regular basis, take inventory of itself.  This includes our church.  As I look back over the last 5 years, we have, by God’s grace, made incredible strides in reaching our community with the practical love of Jesus.  Handicap accessibility, a growing children’s and youth ministry, all during one of the worst economic periods in recent memory…and with no debt!  That has to be God!  Celebrate with me as we recount the wonderful things God has been doing among us…
