The Pathway - Multiplying
Pastors' Appreciation Dinner
See Lorie Tripp for ways that YOU can help out.
We are making progress!!
Well, some times its 2 steps forward and 3 back....
This past couple of weeks NHCC has been struggling with increasing water under the older portion of our facility. The recent rains finally caused a tipping/saturation point and made an increasing problem known!
Downspouts have had to be extended, foundation grade has been increased, new plastic has been placed under the mulch and built up areas. Fans have been set under the gym and nursery areas to keep air flow passing under the floor to, hopefully, keep mold from growing!
Cliff Buchner continues to lead the effort of "stemming the tide" with the help of Joe Wireman, and Jeff Whitney. Brains, brawn, and a John Deere bucket have come together to find solutions. Please pray the problem has been identified and the solution has been found!
BASEMENT ACCESS AND FURNACE ROOM is coming along. A new blower motor and PCM board has been installed in the gym HVAC unit, a new doorway has been created and the original one has been bricked in and sealed up with tar. The outside stairwell is filled and the ground has been sloped away from the building to shed water. Thanks to the guys who have lent a hand on this project.
DELAYED - CARPET INSTALL - Having so many projects on the docket, its been difficult to get to the installation of the carpet tile in the gym/community room. When the time is right, will you give a hand in getting the task done? Please contact Mike Wilson, Elder, or Rusty Wellman, Deacon of Buildings and Grounds ministry. They will need at least 2 teams of 3 people/team to effectively get adhesive and tiles down. Look for this to be happening some time this month!
We always need BUILDING FUND donations! If you'd like to give a special gift towards the fund, that can be accomplished via giving on-line using our Faithlife Giving button, by check, cash or even dropping off bars of gold! (sheets of plywood are pretty valuable, too!)
A Note from Pastor Jerry!
THE PATHWAY - Next message focus, "MULTIPLY" I'll continue to share about the Disciple Making Pathway for New Horizons Church.
It's a simple way to understand what Jesus modeled for us throughout his ministry - DISCOVER / CONNECT / GROW / MULTIPLY. Each week we will unpack an aspect of the pathway and see how the Lord modeled exactly what he wants us to be about to complete the mission he started!
You and I were formed to be a part of a family. We were brought in to relationship with God in Christ and need to experience the life of the body in relation to one another. To CONNECT in meaningful relationship is to begin to walk the disciple making journey of becoming multiplying disciples; disciples who make disciples!
In order for us to reach the maturity as disciples, we have to allow the Holy Spirit to GROW each of us into the likeness of Jesus. Healthy things grow...no matter their age! Just like in the physical realm, when we stop growing we are dying. The spiritual growth of each follower of Jesus is a sign of His life in us. When does it stop? When we are fully transformed! (in heaven).
2 main scriptures to reference before Sunday...
Matthew 4:18-22 (NIV)
18 As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. 19 “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” 20 At once they left their nets and followed him.
21 Going on from there, he saw two other brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John. They were in a boat with their father Zebedee, preparing their nets. Jesus called them, 22 and immediately they left the boat and their father and followed him.
Luke 10:1-2 (NIV)
After this the Lord appointed seventy-two[a] others and sent them two by two ahead of him to every town and place where he was about to go. 2 He told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.
Looking forward to unpacking the purpose and need for us all to MULTIPLY!
