“A great door for effective work has opened to me,” wrote the Apostle Paul to the Corinthians (16:9). A door of effective ministry is open for HBC today. On Saturday, March 30 from 9-11 am, the elders are holding a church meeting designed for you to participate. To help with set-up, a sign up list is posted on the bulletin board for those planning on attending.
Now one of the strengths of having a family chat is giving everyone a chance to be heard. One of the weaknesses is people leave feeling no action was taken. But this shouldn’t trouble us. Lord willing, we trust some measures will be taken – especially regarding current initiatives in our strategic plan. The elders will need however to access the ideas presented on March 30 and to prioritize what was heard with a more specific focus and plan. Another meeting will be held.
Instead of discussing the sermon in small groups it was suggested we discuss questions regarding this up-coming meeting – to get feed-back and insight prior. The elders will meet this coming Wednesday, so if facilitators would keep a simple record of the discussion and report back to us before our meeting this would be helpful.
I am excited about the future of HBC. I believe it is as bright as the promises of God. “To Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever!
Amen.” Ephesians 3:21.
