Alix and I feel so blessed to to have the privilege of leading such a generous church. We regularly thank God for the amazing people in our world. Thank you for being part of that journey; you are making a difference and together we are influencing our world locally and globally.
I’m writing to let you know that our Kingdom Foundation Launch is coming up on the 10th of July. This will be a truly exciting vision-filled and important day in the life of our church. The Launch will commence a month during which we continue to sow and focus on our Kingdom vision. Certainly God has been speaking to me and challenging me as we look to the next 12 months and beyond.
Our theme this year is GO! This means that we GO with the good news of hope and restoration for our world, GO everywhere and announce the message of God’s good news to one and all. We GO LOCAL with a message of hope and restoration to our beautiful city, and GO GLOBAL as we plant churches with Empart in Nepal and expand the Kingdom of God in India through Vision Rescue.
As you would be very aware, as busy people, we can’t be everywhere. You may not have the opportunity to travel to India or Nepal, but we do have an amazing opportunity to express and respond to the amazing Love of Jesus that we have experienced.
In line with our theme and vision for this year we can:
Love Local and Love Global through our combined generosity as a church. I think generosity is love in action!
This year, we’re believing to see God do some incredible things in us and through us. As we Go Local and Go Global with the Love of Jesus, we build His Church and bless our community.
Locally, we have a huge vision which will impact our city. This includes the launch of a new service on Sunday evenings, which will help to reach a whole new group of people i Hobart. We are excited to see Pop Up Church continue and believe that God will expand His kingdom and our thinking through this amazing outreach. We continue to look to the future of our Church Home and as such need to allocate funds to our building fund. Equipping our creative team to create an excellent, welcoming atmosphere, where people can experience the presence of God is high on our priority list for the coming year and caring for those in our community in need is, as always, forefront in our thinking. We continue to believe in and champion the next generation and in the coming year we want to finance the Shine and Strength programs and other Schools Ministry. Once again, we have allocated funds to see Church Together happen again, as this incredible event has been, and will be even more so in future, so significant for our city.
Globally, we want to see new churches planted in Nepal, because the local church is God’s chosen vehicle to reach the lost. As well as this, we will be partnering with Vision Rescue to create a brighter future for the next generation in India, a future of freedom and hope.
Please prayerfully consider how you can partner with an exciting vision as we exercise our faith together.
