“Enlarge the place of your tent, and let the curtains of your habitations be stretched out; spare not; lengthen your cords and strengthen your stakes…”(AMP)As a church we believed that God was calling us to that “next level” and had to be diligent and wise in planning for growth…”Enlarge the place of your tent…”. So we carefully crafted a detailed plan to encourage and sustain growth. As with every plan, execution is critical and I believe the leaders and members of Bethesda respond heroically!
We’ve grown 60% in the last two years!As we have been faithful stewards of what He has entrusted to us, He has been true to His Word! Now that kind of growth is exciting, but we must continue on. Our goal at Bethesda Church, is not to have the largest congregation but to reach the most people with the gospel of Jesus Christ! We have been busy, busy, busy making room for people, building leaders and celebrating Christ. In addition to the church doing well, my wife, Pastor Rachel just released her first single “When You Praise” –today! You can get it on iTunes, Amazon or CDBaby. I’m writing all this as sort of an apology for not writing more frequently. My goal is 3 entries per week and I intend on getting back to that next week. If you’re in the Ypsilanti/Ann Arbor area and are looking for a church we would love to have you. At Bethesda Church there is a place for everyone. Thanks for reading. See you next week!
