I hope that everyone will continue to pray for us as we move forward under God’s leadership toward the church plant. I had a very productive meeting with the guys at Westwood last week and we continue to make progress on the plant. We are currently working on a covenant between Westwood (sponsoring church) and the new mission. Pastor Les plans to preach a sermon on kingdom growth sometime in August and we will make an appeal to the Westwood congregation for those who might be interested in helping the new church. We’ll hold an informational meeting soon after that to explain some more of the details and let people ask questions.
The rough timetable looks like this:
- Gather and train the core group (August – December)
- Worship as a new congregation at our new location (January)
- Launch publicly in the community (February)
