This week, as we celebrate our 6 month birthday, we are especially aware of so many blessings. Here are some highlights of what we have seen God do so far:
+We now have over 100 people serving on our Intercessory Prayer Team.
+We have witnessed 3 adults give their lives to Jesus.
+We have baptized 5 adults and 1 nine year old.
+We have experienced numerical growth in several areas—especially in Ministry with Children. The number of kids participating in our weekly worship service increased from an average of 13 kids each week in January to an average of 21 kids each week in June. This last Sunday, we saw 27 kids!!!
+We have also ministered with an average of 200 kids (and their families) each Sunday in the Summer of Love Swap Meet Ministry. (This ministry is scheduled to continue through the end of August.)
+We have provided simultaneous English/Spanish translation of our messages.
+We have experienced a strong level of multicultural multiracial participation, reflecting the demographics of our local community.
+We have developed strong partnerships with the city, the school district, local churches, the local media, and social service agencies.
+We have donated to eight other organizations doing great ministry in Raytown. As a tithing church, we are committed to giving away the first 10% of funds received.
+We have met every single one of our financial commitments on time during this period.
+We have an outstanding core of leaders who are stepping up in every way!
There are plenty of ways to get involved, whether you live around the community, or around the world. Be sure to check back later this week for a “Top 10” list of ways you can participate.
