I hope you are having a great week and have been enjoying our awesome weather lately. We may not have had much of a winter, but so far our Spring is awesome! We have been flying kites, taking long walks and, of course, the down side - doing lawn work. Get outside this weekend and enjoy this before the heat comes.
Speaking of enjoying things, I hope you have had a chance to enjoy our latest BOLD video, which shows outtakes of some of our BOLD videos. We used this video to announce what God did at Easter and to announce our new BOLD total, because of your BOLD faith that you declared during our “Still BOLD” series. So click here to enjoy some laughs and be amazed at what our God is doing in us.
There is so much to celebrate that isn’t even in the video. In response to God’s leading through our “Still BOLD” series, we now have …
- 88 new commitments to BOLD!
- 90 Increased Commitments!
- 500 adults committed to the BOLD journey
Join me in praising God for all He is doing in us and through us to see the unchurched men, women and children of Fort Bend County have repeated opportunities to hear and respond to the transforming power of Jesus Christ!
We have begun contract negotiations for the space next to our family building for a bigger Student Ministry space, brand new 5th & 6th grade ministry space and expanded Elementary space! We are all about reaching and growing the next generation and partnering with parents in raising them to live for Jesus! Be watching our weekly update and the BOLD website for continual updates on that and all other things BOLD related!
I hope to see you this Sunday as we continue our new series “AUTHENTIC: Real Faith in a Fake World”!
Being BOLD with you!
NEW SERIES: AUTHENTIC: Real Faith in a Fake World continues!
