I know. The title seems a little dramatic, but you are reading my post…so it worked! J
This Sunday is Morning Star’s 12th Anniversary Celebration and also its final service. If that sounds bittersweet, it is. For the last twelve years, Cecil and I have invested in the community and many lives through the ministry of MSC. We have enjoyed this journey! But the time for change has come. This is a new, exciting twist in the history of our church. It isn’t what we had planned, but it is so much better than we ever thought possible. After all, God’s plans are always best for us and for His Kingdom.
Over the past five months, I have been getting to know the leadership team and people at Grace Church in Fremont. Grace Church is a part of our network of churches (Next Generation Churches). To make a very long story short…God has done some incredibly, miraculous stuff over these months to bring our two churches together in partnership. This past Sunday, Grace Church voted unanimously to select me as their new lead pastor, which was done with the understanding that the congregation and staff of MSC would also join me in becoming a part of the Grace Church family!
I invite you to join us this Sunday at MSC for our final service celebration at 10:35am. I will be sharing my story of how God has brought this incredible partnership together. Getting to know the many wonderful people at Grace Church has been an incredibly meaningful experience, yet what makes this change even more meaningful is that I will be able to keep the relationships that we’ve built through the years at MSC. I am so excited to pastor this new church family!
