We have an exciting challenge and opportunity before our church which only God can meet through the Central family working together.God has not brought us to this place to say, “Well done.”He has brought us to this place to say, “Trust Me again for My work through Central has just begun.”I am asking each of you and your family to be in earnest prayer to seek God about your financial commitment.All of us must give sacrificially and trust God to meet our needs as He has so faithfully done in the past. We can do no less for the generations of precious children and families coming behind us and for those who have gone before us to provide for where we are today.
I ask you to again trust our Lord and support our vision to build the new Children’s Building and renovate the vacated areas for “Reaching Families’ Hearts” (REACH). Our preschool, children, youth and special needs ministries have become so overcrowded that we cannot meet the needs of current families and continued growth. Some families have chosen to go elsewhere due to our overcrowding. This breaks my heart as I know it does yours.We must provide for families and their precious children while their hearts are still tender. The majority of people who accept Christ do so by the time they reach 12 years of age.After age 12, only four percent will be likely to accept Him.It is Jesus Christ who changes lives, not buildings.Buildings are simply a required ministry resource to reach families’ hearts.
