From Your Pastor's Heart - April 19, 2015

Good Morning Family,  

Today’s letter is not so much to inspire as it is to encourage.  I believe so incredibly much in the ministry that God has given to this church and we as your pastor and family have invested our lives and our resources into it cheerfully and sacrificially.  I know the same goes for individuals and family groups here in the Body of Christ, as we are thankful for your faithfulness and the investment of your lives and resources as well.

Today, we are going to call together the Church Council to meet to discuss short term and long term ideas and plans as we move forward in what the Lord has laid out for us to do.  Part of this means, prayerfully leaving the future in His hands, while at the same time moving forward in the light He has given us in which to walk.

FBCCF has a unique mission, I believe.  We are much more of a missionary endeavor here than a run of the mill “church organization”.  I am not quite sure how to explain this in the confines of a one page letter.  Perhaps the Lord will allow me to veer from Romans for a week coming up to venture into this topic for us.

For Church Council today, we are asking that everyone who is the chair or assistant chair of any ministry or committee do all in their power to be in attendance.  If you see you are the only one here this morning in your ministry, then especially please plan on attending the Council meeting.  We are meeting at 5:00pm here in our sanctuary and I expect to have a wonderful time as we prayerfully plan and discuss our ministries here.

I believe God has called this church to be a lighthouse for this area of Stone County and we are pursuing that.  There are so many challenges that face us, but “greater is He that is in us, than he that is in the world”!  The countryside is stunningly beautiful, but there is a world of hurt in these hills.  Our calling is to be faithful in representing the Kingdom, preaching the gospel, and discipling believers.  This church and all in it are the light that these hills can see for Jesus.

As always, my prayer is that we would all Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth.”    II Timothy 2:15.          

Humbly Yours,

Bro Steve

Dr. Steven Gann, Your Shepherd
