It’s Monday Again

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving! There are so many reasons for celebrating with a spirit of gratitude during this season of challenge and opportunity. Why not take a moment right now to thank our Father for a tangible blessing worthy of His praise? (Check out the November 4th event for pastors in Upcoming Events below.)
Kings (Brent Ingersoll) Love Week 2020 was incredibly special with over 70 Home Churches launched during the pandemic representing over 1500 people gathered in homes weekly who have partnered together to live out the Code of Kings through Radical Generosity. A large offering was taken during the weekend services and given away in our region over this past week.
2020 Offering: $203,947.85
7-Year Total: $1,025,482.83
2020 Service Hours: 1,910
Executive Pastor Andy Broad shared, “But the richest blessing truly was seeing our Home Churches activated and on mission, even in the midst of a pandemic. In this seventh year of Love Week, we officially crossed the one million dollar threshold of money given away here in the Atlantic region. On Earth as in Heaven!”CLICK HERE for the inspirational video summary of how God’s love was incredibly poured out this week for His glory! Simply amazing and unprecedented for the Church in our region.

Points to Ponder
  • Church online is not about content. It is about connecting people to people. Content is the catalyst for that connection. (Bobby Gruenewald)
  • It’s not enough to build an audience unless we are discipling people. We need to move from making statements to asking questions. Move from social media to social ministry. It doesn’t matter how many followers we have if they are not following Jesus through us. (Nona Jones)
  • Guard against letting someone else’s toxicity tempt you to respond in a similarly toxic fashion. We can’t control what toxic people do and say, but we can control what we do and say. (Gary Thomas)
