I hope you are praying for us. There is… lots going on… good stuff, but lots of it. Here are the highlights:
- We are really pleased to own the 5100 sq ft building at 1445 Dayton Street. Now we have to raise a significant chunk of money ($300,000 is our goal), hire an architect, develop designs, get city approvals, hire contractors, do construction.
- The Summer Food Program where we are helping to distribute food to kids is going great, but it is a substantial time and energy investment. We are energized knowing that we are developing relationships that will reshape eternity.
- Next week is the one year anniversary of Aurora’s Theater Shooting. As you’d suspect there is lots going on in our community to mark that date and lots of opportunities to be the hands, feet and voice of Jesus.
- We are gearing up to host a Heaven Is For Real event in Aurora on August 17th. We are anticipating that dozens of people will make a commitment to wholeheartedly follow Jesus at the event. There are still a number of details to workout and lots of work to do.
- Pastor Jimmy Jimenez will be arriving next week and joining our staff. We are really excited about what Pastor Jimmy will be able to add to our ministry. It’s going to take some time to get him settled in and up to full speed.
- All the regular stuff that needs to happen every week to be an active disciple making church in the heart of a stressed urban community.
Please pray for us.
Oh, and by the way, in the next few days you will be getting a more detailed list of our current ministry opportunities and corresponding financial needs. Would you also be praying about helping us out with a financial contribution? Thanks.
