This past Sunday was a big one. Not only did we celebrate turning four years old as a church, but it was also a pivotal week 3 in our series and building campaign Raise ‘Em Up.
I read a captivating few verses from chapter 3 in the story of Nehemiah. By captivating, I mean a long list people who worked on the walls of Jerusalem…each of them with a name terribly hard to pronounce. At first glance, it may appear to be a dry, boring, and insignificant chapter in the Bible. But that couldn’t be further from the truth. Chapter 3 highlighted the make-it-or-break-it competent to the success of Nehemiah’s vision…and ours as well. That special component is the power of everybody!
We have a big vision right now to move into a home of our very own. But that vision won’t become a reality without the power of everybody. On Sunday, we made available to you a pledge card designed for you to indicate the part you will play in partnering with us to raise the funds to raise up the walls.
We are asking you to return those pledge cards on either of the next two Sundays. Simply drop them in the collection box near the Welcome Desk or send them in the mail, by October 31, to 55 Robin Lane, Hudson, WI 54016. If you need to access any of the campaign material, it can all be found at midcurrentchurch.org/raiseemup
Raising a minimum of $500,000 is no small feat, but I know it is entirely possible with the power of everybody!
One last note about this coming weekend. We are excited to send 30 women away on the annual Breathe retreat. And we also have a dynamic worship experience dialed up for you.
- I’ll be leading worship and can’t wait to grab my guitar again and let it rip!
- We are welcoming my former lead pastor, Remy Diederich, to Midcurrent. Remy is the founding pastor of Cedarbrook Church in Menomonie and has so much wisdom about church planting and about young churches moving from place to place. I can’t wait for you to learn from him a little bit more about the journey we are embarking on together.
If you are anywhere near Hudson, WI this Sunday, and are a friend of mine or Remy’s or of Midcurrent or Cedarbrook, I want to extend a special invitation to you to fill up the room for what should be a special morning together!
