We had a wonderful day yesterday celebrating one year since we constituted as a church. The Lord truly has been good to our church and blessed us in a special way.
We had a lot of fun hearing from many folks in the church. Each of the small groups shared a bit about the things they are learning from God’s Word. We also recognised several people who completed various levels of the Foundations discipleship course.
It was great to have so many members, regular attendees, and even some guests from as far away as Bulgaria visiting with us. We also were especially blessed to have Chris and Sherry Waye and their family with us for the service. They were with us in the very beginning when we started the church in Downham, and we would not be where we are as a church without their support and help. Chris preached an excellent message from Philippians 1:27-28 about “Standing Fast.”
We finished off the day with a lovely Bring and Share lunch. I am always impressed with the wonderful spread of food we enjoy usually on the third Sunday of each month, but yesterday I thought it was especially nice. To top it off, Salome made us a very nice anniversary cake to celebrate and to enjoy eating. (Don’t tell anyone, but I had two pieces!)
Thanks for keeping the work in prayer here. There is much work to be done, and we know that Satan wants to discourage and stop it, but we are confident that if Christ is for us then who can be against us!
