I can hardly believe the launch of our church is only a little over a month away!! CRAZY! God has been so good to us! I had three things I wanted to update you on!
1. I wanted to remind you about our launch team meeting this Sunday! For everyone who has agreed to be on our launch team, these are meeting you committed to be at and we REALLY need you to be there! The weeks leading up to the launch on September 12 are going to be crucial and need all hands on deck!! The meeting is at 6pm this Sunday (Aug 1) at Capital City Church (4112 Garland Dr. Raleigh).
2. Praise/Request! As most of you know we have been trying to raise $100,000 to get everything we need to start the church. PRAISE - As of right now we have raised $84,000! REQUEST – We still need to raise $16,000 in the next four days… by August 1st. That is when most of our bills come due. Our Launch Team Meeting will be the last offering taken before this time period ends. Now is the time when we ask God what he would have us do and come together as a community and seek God! I really believe He is not going to get us 84% of the way there and leave us hanging!
3. Praise! Athens Drive High School is the High School we have picked to really focus our outreach to High School students! Well…I just had lunch with the leader of Young Life at Athens Drive and they have agreed to partner with us to reach Athens! We will be hanging out at their big outreach events and building relationship with students and inviting them to Starting Point! This is going to help our High School ministry get off the ground big time and lead to a bunch of students coming to know Christ!! God is good!
