I can't tell you how excited I am about what God's doing and about to do at NCC! By God's grace, we have seen several new people not just attending on Sundays, but joining Community Groups across the city. As most of you know, we are about to embark on the LARGEST outreach we have ever attempted at NCC. We will invite the city to a free Easter Egg Hunt at Wright Park (Saturday, April 7th) as well as invite the city to our Easter gathering on Sunday, April 8th. I truly believe God will use these events to glorify Himself and draw people to Himself.
It never ceases to amaze me how willing and eager you all are to jump in and serve in any way you can. THANK YOU!
Having said that, I truly felt that I needed to remind you all of the most important thing...
17 The seventy-two returned with joy, saying, “Lord, even the demons are subject to us in your name!” 18 And he said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. 19 Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you. 20 Nevertheless, do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.”
We will work hard, we will serve like people created to bless others, we will see the kingdom come in this city, but don't lose sight of this... Rejoice in the unmerited, undeserved GRACE of God that has been given to you.
I love you all!
