Let's start with some praise updates. For starters, as you can probably see, we now have an official logo! I want to give a shout out to Jay Reynolds for donating his valuable time to design this logo! Also, God has provided a PERFECT location for us to hold our regular praise and worship nights! A big thank you goes out to Capital City Christian Church for allowing us to meet there. They are letting us use their facilities free of charge and their location is within a mile of where we want to plant! Thank you for lifting this request up the past few weeks!
1. We are hoping to buy plane tickets today for our trip to Africa in the beginning of December. Pray that God would bring all of the details together for the trip and be at work in the hearts of everyone involved there.
2. We are on the verge of locking down someone as our interim worship pastor!! We are finalizing all of the details this week. Pray that God would continue to provide us wisdom as we move forward in this relationship. Hopefully, next week I will be able to share our first official staff addition to the team!
3. BIG We are kicking into high gear the process of raising the funds for our church launch. We need to raise $100k by mid april 2010 in order to buy equipment, hire staff, advertise, and secure a location. We are hoping to do this through church partnerships, the giving of people on our launch team, and through fundraising projects. This is a goal that is impossible without God's help...that way God gets the credit and not us :)
