CHURCH IN MOTION
God has called his church to see the vision he has for us clearly, to stop playing it safe, to step out of our comfort zone and sacrifice for future generations! Will you answer the call?

God has done some amazing things in the life of our church, we have honestly been blown away by the favor He’s had over our church. Through the generosity, willingness and availability of people like you, it’s all been made possible.
It has been an awesome journey thus far, but we know that God has more in store. The best is yet to come.
Here are some moments to help celebrate what God has done in the past, but also to look towards the vision God has ahead.

As we share our story we can’t help but to be inspired by the story of generosity that came out of a small little church in Macedonia. In 2 corinthians 8:3 Paul writes “for I testify that they gave not only what they could afford but far more!”
I want to share with you 4 things I think they would say if we interviewed this church in a podcast today.
Our hearts BELONGED to God: I think this church genuinely had their hearts connected to the heart beat of God for people, giving was only a result of their desires being connected to God’s.
We BELIEVED God: I’m inspired that they didn’t just believe IN God, but they believed God and trusted God to his word.
It is more BLESSED to give than receive: They understood a principle that generosity leads to joy.
This is BIGGER than us: The church in Macedonia wasn’t a mega church, it wasn’t a rich church, but they were able to give beyond what was expected because they realized this one thing. It’s not only about YOU. God’s mission is BIGGER than us.
I want to thank you for being a partner! Being a church in motion is being able to sow into what can’t be physically seen yet and sacrificing for the future! Thank you again for standing together with us. We are humbled to see what God has done and will continue to do with our unity!
