He gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ. ~Ephesians 4:11
#Apostles are the ones sent out with a vision.
#Prophets are the ones challenging the status quo to give voice to the vision..
#Evangelists are the ones connecting people to the vision: “Come & See”
#Shepherds are the ones nurturing and correcting those following the vision.
#Teachers are the ones making the vision practical.

Due to the inclement weather, Queens is unable to open the facility for us, so worship has been cancelled on January 8th.
Join us on January 15th to pray for and co-mission the Peru missionaries.
See you all in a week! In the mean time, think of 2 people you could invite for coffee (or hot chocolate) this week.

Happy New Year!
First, I have been thinking a lot about 2 Corinthians 5:17
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come; the old has gone, the new is here!”
When we signed the contract with Queens for use of their Sports Complex we were notified that 9-25 they would have an event and we would have to relocate. For months the oversight team, Brad and Carrie wrestled with what should we do? Should we join with a local church for worship? Should we return to Myers Park for one Sunday? Should we try to use Symphony Park? The team then decided, let’s all go over to the area elementary school that is a Title 1 school and see how we could serve them.
Little did we know how God’s perfect timing would align for us, the school and our city.
