CONGRATULATIONS GRADUATES . . . THE BEST IS YET TO COME!

In this season of exciting changes and maybe even some uncertainty, here are some constants that will always be true.

Psalm 139:13–16 (HCSB)
13 For it was You who created my inward parts; You knit me together in my mother’s womb. 14 I will praise You because I have been remarkably and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful, and I know this very well. 15 My bones were not hidden from You when I was made in secret, when I was formed in the depths of the earth. 16 Your eyes saw me when I was formless; all my days were written in Your book and planned before a single one of them began.

Ephesians 2:10 (NLT)
10 For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.

Hebrews 9:27–28 (NLT)
27 And just as each person is destined to die once and after that comes judgment, 28 so also Christ was offered once for all time as a sacrifice to take away the sins of many people. He will come again, not to deal with our sins, but to bring salvation to all who are eagerly waiting for him.

Prayerfully prepare your next step in light of the eternal values of your faith!

NEW SERIES: LEGACIES OF FAITH


Are you living with regrets you don’t think can ever be overcome? Did you at one time have a dream of how God would do something significant with your life...BUT now you say, “There’s not a chance!” . . . because of something you did?

Is there a legacy YOU WISH COULD HAVE BEEN YOURS? Maybe it’s NOT too late!  You could start this weekend.

We are starting a new series about HOW the legacies of people who WERE cowardly, immoral, broken, insignificant, and unable were transformed into bold, courageous, and capable of MUCH MORE THAN THEY EVER DREAMED POSSIBLE!!

I HOPE YOU CAN JOIN US!

CASA UPDATE

The security wall is going up around the perimeter of Casa’s property!  Look at this photo of what God has used us to help create with our Christmas Offering! It should be completed soon! 

NEXT GEN MINISTRIES PASTOR

I thought you’d like to be able to read the blog of our soon-to-arrive Next Gen Ministries Pastor, Adam Hollingsworth! You can click here to read it! https://adamhollingsworth.wixsite.com/blog.  His official start date is just two weeks away! On Saturday, he and Megan both graduate from Nebraska Christian College with their bachelor’s degrees! Kim and I will be there to celebrate their accomplishments and to show our love for them as a church.

BUILDING FUND

There are two main ways you can give financially to the ministry of Thunder Mountain Church.

The General Fund is our operational pot of money.  Giving there expands our ability to reach out, touch lives, and grow people now. This is how all ministry is funded!

The Building Fund is the pot of money we draw upon to increase our capacity to minister to people. This funds a greater reach in the future!

We are preparing things that I look forward to telling you about in the near future! I can tell you that this summer the Building Fund will be used this to help fund the city sewer so that we have the option of building on our property.

Because we are on a septic system, a large leach field is required based on the number of people who use our facilities.  We have plans for every foot of our current ten acres but before we can do anything we must connect to the city sewer. To do that, we have to pay by the foot to connect to the nearest location... which is in Golden Acres.  In addition, there are architect fees and permits that need to be secured. IF WE CAN DO THAT FROM THE BUILDING FUND, it leaves us in a good place for what comes next!

If that excites you, please consider directing additional financial support specifically to the Building Fund.  Please don’t take away from what you’ve already committed to the Lord to the General Fund.  As we build, we want our focus to be on ministry as we continue to prepare for the future. For more information on giving, please click here. 

Whatever the Lord leads you to do, please consider automating your giving in whatever way you choose.  Kim and I did this years ago and have found it very helpful! We remain consistent and obedient to what the Lord has directed us to give.  I believe you and the church will be blessed if you do. 

God has used us in some great ways in our nearly thirty-year history, but the best is yet to come!
