A Note From Pastor Alan
Transitions are tough! Do yo know what I mean? For example, your son or daughter is finally moving on to college or out on their own. They are excited about the new adventure, but most parents are sadden because they are losing their baby. Or, your boss has retired and a new younger guy comes in and you just aren't sure about him. Didn't someone once "The times, they are a-changing."
Right now, our church is undergoing transition. We are seeing a long needed update to our building coming to a close soon. We are coming back after a pandemic, though we now will be wearing masks; we are back! New faces are showing up each week. New opportunities are presenting themselves for ministry.
We are not the church we were in March of 2020. We have a clean slate before us. The question is what will we put on it. I do not think God wants us to what we were doing. He's given us a new future to join Him in reaching the lost in our community. Will we be obedient or not? My prayer is that we will go where God says go, turn right when He says go right, and move ahead when He leads.
Join me in praying for God to open doors for ministry, outreach, discipleship and worship. Pray for leaders to step forward or God to bring them to us. Let's remember, He has called us to join Him in redeeming a lost world.
To Him Be the Glory!

Pray For Our Church
Sadly, hundreds of churches across the US close their doors every year. That’s why missionaries like Joey and Vicki Hay play a key role by coming alongside churches that have either died or are close to death.
The church that utilized the building in Starke, Florida, where Joey now pastors, had dissolved and left the building vacant. Joey and a team from a sister church, however, were able to step in and replant a new congregation that has started reaching the community with a fresh vision and passion for those who need the Gospel.
THE COOPERATIVE PROGRAM is the financial fuel for reaching every person for Jesus Christ in every town, every city, every state, and every nation. Your support through the Cooperative Program helps revitalize struggling churches in order for them to relaunch so that a Gospel witness in the community is not lost.
PRAY for Joey and Vicki Hay as they continue ministering to and sharing the Gospel with those in their community and that their church will be a growing light there.
