This past Sunday our church gathered at Atkinson Park for our anniversary Sunday. This is a chance for us to get outside, enjoy the fall weather, and remind ourselves of what God is doing among us, and why we're organizing this church.
I preached a message which touched on two parts of our mission statement, "Helping people thrive in Christ." I explained first what it means to be "in Christ." And second, how bearing fruit is what we mean by "thriving in Christ."
Also as part of my message, I reviewed a brief history of where we've come from as a congregation. I'll reproduce that history/recap here. As you read, please pray to God and thank Him for all He's doing in our midst, and ask Him to do even more in the new year that's coming.
By His Grace,
Pastor Phil Henry
