It Takes a Team

If you haven’t heard, we currently have a large team of AV professionals working tirelessly to install a brand new custom designed PA system inside our worship center.  I find it appropriate that these men are putting their hands to work while we are studying Nehemiah and the Israelites do the same.  I’m so thankful for these men and this AV project because I believe their good work will indeed make a difference in the life of our church. 

I do want to thank you for your good work in this project as well.  The audio overhaul is only possible because of your continued generosity.  Your faithful tithes and offerings have made this project a reality.  I’m praying that God will continue to provide in His timing and that this will be the first of several technological upgrades.  In the coming months and years, we want to shift our attention from audio to some much-needed upgrades in our video, lighting, and online broadcast ministries.  I believe each of these upcoming enhancements will better equip us to communicate the Gospel with excellence and reach more people for Jesus Christ in our city and around the world. 

I want to encourage you to continue being a difference maker this week.  As we learned last Sunday, it takes a team to build something special and God has invited each of us to be a part of the work.  One practical way you can join the team this week is by partnering with us for our upcoming Trunk or Treat.  This event is one of our favorite outreaches every year, and it will certainly take a team to make it a success.  Consider donating candy on Sunday morning, so we can bless the children in our community.  We also need more volunteers and more cars signed up, so prayerfully consider how you can be a part of the excitement that evening.  Most importantly, think about who you can invite to join us for the special event.  Trunk or Treat is the perfect opportunity to invite a young family to come and experience the love and fellowship of our church.

I encourage you to continue to invite and invest here at ABC.  God is building something special, and I know He wants to use you to make a difference.  May we each respond like the Israelites last week: “And they said, ‘Let us rise up and build.’ So they strengthened their hands for the good work” (Nehemiah 2:18b).  Let’s rise up this week and walk in the good works He has planned for us..

Onward and upward,

Jonathan Spencer
