WOW! God has been working in our church. We have entered a New Era! You voted last Sunday unanimously and enthusiastically to adopt a New Vision Statement. You might say a New Vision for Runyan, FBC. Love God, Love Others, Serve All
We understand it. We are motivated. Now we need to let it saturate all that we do. It will take a little while, but we will begin to deepen and give direction to our existing ministries and activities. We will soon identify new ministries that we need to start. Some of those will be in the areas of Outreach, Discipleship, and meeting the needs of members and neighbors.
Wow! God has been working in our church. The last Sunday in January we saw two boys from our Wednesday night Faith Kids ministry announce that they had invited Christ into their lives. Two Sundays later, Cayden Clemmons, one of the boys, was baptized. Praise the Lord!
On February 24, we saw two couples come forward making major decisions; two for baptism, one rededication, one joined by letter. Praise the Lord! Let’s stay on our knees thanking the Lord and asking for more to be saved and baptized. Let’s remember to stay vigilant in our walk with the Lord, keeping our eyes and our hearts on Him. Who will be next to be saved and be baptized? Who will be next to join the church?
Thank you to the Nominating Committee for their good work and thank you to all of you who felt the Lord calling to serve your church and agree to a position among our committees or teams, as I like to call them.
Thank you also to our Finance Committee for our 2019 Budget. The Budget is only a guideline of how to direct our monies. I believe that as we strive to Glorify God through Loving Him, Loving Others and Serving All, He will supply the funds needed. It is my prayer that our giving in 2019 will exceed the most Runyan FBC has ever received in one year. Our Little Pantry is being well used. It is showing us there is a great need in our area for the basics of life. You have responded so well to this need. I am thrilled. Keep up the good work.
