I’ve been involved here at NewSpring Church for 11years. It’s been an amazing journey to say the very least. I remember Perry asking my husband and me if we would clean the bathrooms, empty trash, and pick up after church on Sundays. That’s when it all changed for me. This ignited a passion in me I did not know existed. I was a part of something so much bigger than myself. I did not understand at this time that this action of serving was a call on my life. I just thought I was helping Pastor P out by doing this. I had never felt more alive. I loved having a responsibility in the big picture of making NewSpring happen each week. We got more and more involved and we began to grow more and more in our walks with the Lord. There is something so life-changing in being an active part of the body of Christ. How sweet is Jesus to allow me, to allow us, this opportunity to represent Him.
Ephesians 3:20 “Now glory be to God! By his mighty power at work within us, he is able to accomplish infinitely more than we would ever dare to ask or hope.”
Here we are 11 years later, having had a Sunday of 18,000 people stronger. Do you guys understand how not normal this is; 413 people saying out loud “Jesus Christ is my Lord”and then being baptized just within the past two weeks? Yesterday I read a blog by a pastor in California who is moving to Anderson, SC to volunteer at NewSpring church. Already over 2200 church leaders from around the world are signed up to attend Unleash in March. People are experiencing healing in our church like never before. It’s amazing what God can do in your life, in your family, and in His church when we choose to believe in the power at work within us. I pray daily that God will use me in His church where I can bring Him the most glory. I am no longer going to pray this just for me, but for each of you as well. May we all be desperate for His direction and available whenever forwhatever.
This Sunday is super bowl weekend and I tell you this Saturday and Sunday at church is going to be so much better than any football game or super bowl commercial. Let’s be praying for life-change and arrive filled with anticipation for the “infinitely more than we would ever dare to ask or hope”. You really do not want to miss this message. Come prepared to have your world rocked! Remember the services are Saturday night at 4pm and 6pm and Sunday morning at 9:15am and 11:15am. There are no Sunday night services.
I am so honored to serve beside each of you and blessed to get to continue on this glorious journey of opportunities to honor the Lord with you. “NOW GLORY BE TO GOD!”
