New Year

Suppose you were to go to a ticket window of an airport and say “I want a ticket.” The clerk would say, “Where to?” and you replied “anywhere” “what tickets do you have?” the ticket clerk would say that is Crazy! You’ll never get anywhere! All day long you can just stand there waiting for a ticket but he won’t be able to sell you one because he won’t know where.

All too many churches are just like this they could have so much that they could do before us is an entire town streets all around us kids, elderly, middle age, some with different needs and we have a beautiful building that could be inviting to anyone we need to decide now at the start of the year what we are planning for the New Year.

Isaiah 6:8-9 (KJV 1900)

8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me. 9 And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; And see ye indeed, but perceive not.

We have an awesome chance! A lot of other churches would give anything to have this opportunity and all we need to do is to step out and begin to work to see Abounding Grace Assembly of God filled each Sunday

1.      We can seat 150 – 175 people without counting overflow! We have the space

2.      There are lots of people all around our building who don’t go to church lots of kids who never went one time in their lives. We have the people

3.      We can go out and evangelize without using one drop of gasoline!

4.      We have an altar that is getting dusty

5.      We have a piano without a player

6.      We have a baptistery that needs filled!

7.      We have a basement where we can have youth services, Vacation Bible School,

8.      We have a brand new year!

9.      What are we waiting for?

Jeremiah 29:11-12 (KJV 1900)

11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. 12 Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.
