Church Family, I hope that the week after Easter finds you full of joy and excited about the Lord’s victory over death. I find myself more and more encouraged after each Sunday gathering as the weeks and months pass by. The people of FBC Seminole are truly a blessing to serve and worship alongside. I wanted to take a moment this week to give some exciting news. Over the next three Sunday evenings we will be walking through a new season of vision casting for FBC Seminole. April 8th, 15th, and 22nd are all nights with great purpose in mind. After months and months of prayer, conversations, staff meetings, and intentional searching in the Scriptures it is time to cast ministry vision. I do believe that the Lord has given us a wonderful purpose and clear perspective on some fresh and exciting vision for the future of His church.
The apostle Paul wrote to the church in Ephesus to encourage them, as a unified body of people, on their journey together saying, “For this reason I kneel before the Father from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named. I pray that He may grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power in your inner being through the Spirit, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. I pray that you, being rooted and firmly established in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the length and width, height and depth of God’s love, and to know that Christ’s love surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with the fullness of God.” (Eph. 3:14-19)
It is my prayer and hope as your pastor to see the fullness of Christ dwell richly in you as we honor His church together. Last year we rolled out a new logo to express, briefly and simply, our purpose of existence as a church. We are a body of people brought together by God to carry the task of Proclaiming Christ, Living Truth, and Loving People. We will now, over these next three Sunday nights unpack how we truly express each of those areas in our church. This is a time for the people of FBC Seminole to come together, pray together, worship together, and see together, in unity, for the glory of God alone. This is truly an exciting time for us all and I hope you will make plans to attend these three nights of vision casting.
Soli Deo Gloria,
