I wanted to take a moment to let you know how fun this summer has been so far. Typically, summer attendance takes a dip in this part of the country. And while that has proved true this summer at Midcurrent, here’s what has also been true. We have welcomed so many first time visitors through our doors. Our newest pastor, Jonathan, has spent his first month introducing himself to as many people as possible. And every week he tells me how amazed he is at the number of people he meets who are attending for the first time ever!
I can’t tell you how encouraging this is for our team and how excited we are for the next season of ministry this fall. We have all acknowledged that we are bracing for what we anticipate will be a momentous new chapter in the life of Midcurrent. And the truth is, we can’t do it without those of you who call Midcurrent home. We need more of you to be more engaged in the work God has called us to. So I am inviting you to do a quick self assessment of three things: your current levels of praying, giving, and serving.
- Praying: From new fall rhythms, to the launch of MC Youth, a new season of MC Circles, our continued investment into the next generation in MC Kids, and beyond…we need more of you praying for God to be at work in this place and in the hearts of those who walk through our doors.
- Giving: If you call this place home and have not yet committed to regular giving back to God, let me encourage you to consider that step of faith as fall is about to set in. Your generosity is not just about keeping the lights on at 200 First Street, it’s about helping the light of Jesus to shine into the dark places in this world. You can set/adjust your giving preferences on the Church Center app or by visiting this link.
- Serving: One of the best ways to contribute to God’s work here, all while getting plugged in and meeting like-minded people, is to join a team. We are better together, and as we prepare for all that God has in store for Midcurrent, trust me when I say we have a spot with your name on it. For more information, check out this link right here.
This Sunday, I’ll bring our series, Translation Please, to a close. Hope you can be there for it.
