MONTHLY NEWS & EVENTSJune 26 2017
I wanted to take a few moments wright a note to let you know how much we have appreciated all of you who serve here at Grace Family Church, and look forward to all God will do through you in the future!
The Summer months can be particularly challenging as people tend to have church attendance a bit lower on their list of priorities than during the Fall, Winter, and Spring. This can be for a variety of reasons, with the primary one being various vacations and family outings, yet I want to encourage you to “stay the course” and continue to plan and prepare for your ministry as if the “multitudes” were showing up!
People will be very quick to recognize lack of motivation, preparation, and excitement and will often decide to back off even more since they feel we don’t care as much as we should.
There is a wonderful scripture that should keep us focused during times like this; Galatians 6:9 (KJV) 9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
As I read a scripture like that, it is clear that in our times of ministry, weariness will set in, yet if we will remain faithful to the call of God on our lives, there is a season called “due season” in which we will reap a harvest. Yet, we cannot reap a harvest unless we have planted seeds! Exciting assurances we receive from God’s Word for sure!
Keep moving forward and believe God for a mindset of “the best is yet to come!”
Blessings in Christ,
