Thank You BPF!

A Generous Gift – I’m so grateful for the many ways you support the work of the Kingdom of God through our Fellowship. We collected our World Missions Offering on December 4th but more came in this past Sunday. Your gifts have climbed to almost $18,000. Other than last year’s nextSTEP now tithe, this will be the largest gift we’ve ever sent to the International Mission Board. I’d love to see our giving top twenty thousand, so if you haven’t yet participated, please join us.

The votes are in – And you said YES! In an almost unanimous vote you said yes to Aaron & Holly Sanders, the members of University Baptist Church and the unchurched people of Galveston when you affirmed plans to re-plant a church on the island. Coastal Community Church will be our first satellite church, though we’ve helped plant nine other churches since we were first planted. It’s not too late to get on board the vision trip to Galveston this Sunday afternoon from 4:00-8:00 PM. Sign up Sunday at the Next Step Center.

You also said yes to our 2012 Budget and new Advisors Matt Hiatt and Jackie Fuller. Matt & Jackie will join Fonda Hundl, Kevin Johnson, Janis Kennedy, Jimmie Lapier, & John Rodriguez on the BPF Advisory Team. They’ll oversee the budget, advise our Leadership Team and help guide us along a unique journey next year as we start a new church, search for a new Student Minister, and begin construction on our permanent home on the Brazoria Road.

As we move into our second decade let’s remember a few words and phrases that have served us well along the way: it’s not about us, a church for the unchurched, everybody serves, shift, give and it will be given to you, others, and take your next step with God. 

 

I’ll see you Sunday with more HEADLINES.

 

Live bold, Greg
