Ok, so I know it has been a long time since I’ve posted anything up at all. But here are the belated pics of our newest addition, Aaron Reed. He is now 5 weeks old. Christopher really enjoys being big brother, and Timothy has no idea what the little thing is. Timothy’s really into climbing right now. Every once in a while we have to save Aaron from being a step.
For everyone’s information, we are moving to Colorado Springs at the end of the month! Turns out, a new ministry opportunity opened up for us out there. I received a call about a month and a half ago, a few weeks before the time Aaron was born, about a worship ministry position for a satellite church Sunnyside Christian Church was overseeing. Through continuous prayer we believe God has called us to join the ministry that will begin Meridian Point. You can check out the website at www.meridianpointchurch.com and see all that is going on.
The plan began when Falcon Christian Church approached the leadership at Sunnyside describing their need to reach out to the generation that is so quickly moving into the area. At the time their attendance was anywhere between 40-50 people on the weekends, and they were without a minister. Sunnyside agreed to help and Jay, the small groups minister, felt God’s call to pursue this opportunity. Jay contacted me and explained to me the vision of Meridian Point. We both spent a lot of time praying about God’s direction and really believe that we have made the right decision.
The church is located in an rural area that is quickly urbanizing. I have seen the plans for expecting over 100,000 new residents to move in within the next 30-40 years. The neat thing is that the plans are having to speed up in order to keep with the pace of those moving into the area. Within the next month we are going to send out 50,000 letters to the residents that are within driving distance of the church about the launch of Meridian Point on November 5th. We are really excited about this and hope that you will join with us in prayer as we begin this ministry. Hope to hear from each of you soon! I’ll do my best to keep everyone updated about what is going on. Have a great week!
