A Pastoral Word. . .

Pastor Mark Adams

November 19, 2020
Sunday, November 15, I shared the vision I believe God is leading us to fulfill as a church in 2021. The idea behind that message is to inspire us all to SHARE THE CURE for the sin-sickness that plagues humanity.

But how will we flesh out this vision? What will we DO in 2021 to SHARE THE CURE? Here are some of our plans:
  • We will continue to MOVE MARBLES---one for every “Share the Cure faith conversation” until we get to and go beyond 5,000.
  • We will schedule events to help heal our fellowship---fun times to renew friendships after this lengthy quarantine, perhaps this fall we’ll have some sort of “Home-Coming!”
  • Next year we will also have a campaign to help us pay off the ROC---that evangelistic tool God led us to build that gives us opportunities to SHARE THE CURE.
  • We have applied to be a location where the vaccine for Covid-19 will be given---praying that God uses that to help us SHARE THE CURE for the deadliest disease: sin-sickness.
  • We will host an in-depth Bible study focused on equipping us to better understand racial injustice---so that we can be agents of healing.
  • Our men are planning a trip to The Cove to sit under the Bible Teaching of Tony Dungee and James Brown.
  • Once the vaccine comes out, we will work to revive Children’s Ministry programs.
  • This will be a year of restarting and growing our music program to pre-pandemic levels.
  • We will host studies designed to heal and enrich marriages and help families heal finances weakened during the pandemic.
  • As things improve, the food pantry will close and Grace in Store will reopen.
  • Grace Groups will move back on campus to meet in person.

Those are some of the plans we are working on in the new year, but there are things we have started during Covid that will continue.
  • I think Zoom Committee Meetings may be here to stay. It’s just easier to meet from our homes, and more comfortable.
  • I also believe we will need to continue to live-stream our services.

But keep those prescription bottles handy because the main purpose behind everything we do will be to SHARE THE CURE---the ONLY cure---Jesus.

Do you remember our text from Sunday?
“Where sin increased, grace increased all the more, so that, just as sin reigned in death, so also grace might reign through righteousness to bring eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 5:20-21)

Keep the SON in your eyes!
