We had a great meeting with the Councilwoman and her assistant, Melissa Hopkins. We were able to lay out our vision and address concerns she anticipates the community could have. We were also able to articulate the use of our property for the good of the greater community. Overall, I believe it was a great meeting, thank you for praying.

Along the same lines, Sunday Night's "Informed Family Meeting" is very important.

There have been some very exciting and some challenging developments in our building project. The factor that is most an issue is money: Both General fund cash-flow (extra money for building) and Building fund offering. Our giving is Super, don't get me wrong, but for a young church with a land mortgage, we are attempting an aggressive project. The need is real; our God is rich; his people pray and believe in faith; God will provide at the time needed.
