As a church, one of the ways we measure our impact is by asking and answering this question: “If we were to close down the doors of Fellowship tomorrow, would anyone notice?”
We entered 2019 ready to close out the decade strong. We unleashed hope and compassion locally, nationally, and globally. And as you’ve read through the stories and stats in this report of how we’ve stewarded the resources you’ve so sacrificially and generously given; I can now answer that question. “If we were to close down the doors of Fellowship tomorrow, would anyone notice?” The answer is a resounding “yes.”
While that answer may be a barometer of how we’re doing as a church and the impact we’re making; we don’t want to grow complacent or comfortable. The harvest is still plentiful. There is still great injustice in the world, there are still lost people that need saving, and there are still kids without a home or a family.
So, as we step into a new year and a new decade together, we’re not slowing down, we’re just getting started and we’re looking forward with hopeful anticipation as we continue doing the great work God has called us to do. Remember, the church of Jesus Christ is the greatest hope for this world. It’s Plan A and there is no Plan B.
Lord willing, the best is still yet to come.
