Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples – 1 Chronicles 16:24
This weekend we have the wonderful blessing to have Pastor Spartak at Grace Fort Worth. Pastor Spartak is a wonderful man of God who has been serving faithfully in the nation of Georgia. Pastor Jamie and I had the opportunity to spend some time with him and other spiritual leaders in Georgia. We laughed with them… and cried as we heard their need. While Pastor Spartak is here, you have two opportunities to hear him speak.
The first opportunity will be a missions update meeting this Friday evening at 7 pm at the church building. Bato, a good friend, will be interpreting for Pastor Spartak. This will be a smaller casual meeting where you can hear how the gospel is gaining momentum. There will also be time for you to ask questions regarding the Kingdom’s efforts there. Please register here so we have space set aside for you and your family.
Pastor Spartak will also be sharing at our 9 am and 10:45 am services. I am sure you’ll be blessed by the word he is bringing. During the Sunday services, we will be taking up an offering to bless him and the churches there. If you would like to give toward this, please give online and select “Special Missions Offering.” Please give the gift through the church and not directly to Spartak as our network will be presenting the gift to him at the GMI Leadership Summit at the beginning of November.
I look forward to seeing you all this weekend!
The Country of Georgia
In just a few weeks, I will be joining several pastors from around our church network to lead four conferences in the country of Georgia. We’ll start in the west side of Georgia in Tbilisi and teach a conference to lead pastors and a second conference to church leaders. Then, we’ll travel to the east side of Georgia to Kutaisi where we’ll do two more conferences. These teachings will call leaders and pastors up to more of what God has for them. And we all know…when a leader grows, everyone benefits!
God is moving across Georgia, and you can be a part of that. Please pray for these churches, their leaders, and their country. On April 16, we will be taking up an offering to cover the costs of these conferences. You can give online here, or bring your gift to a Sunday service.
Every month, we bless the teachers and staff members at 3 local schools: Harrison Lane, Elementary DAEP, and Secondary DAEP. Along with blessing teachers monthly, we also donated thousands of dollars in school supplies this past year. This past week, our team had the chance to sit down with some of the community leaders and school faculty at the HEB-ISD Adopt-a-School reception to hear how we can better serve them. One of the things we learned was that two of our schools have never been adopted before! We are making a difference! You can learn more about this outreach here.
Would you consider setting up a monthly recurring gift for this outreach? Each month, we give $250-$1,000 to help local schools. You can give toward this outreach here.
