Update from Pastor Glen – July 15, 2022
Hey South family. It’s so good to be able to say hello to you again after what’s been a busy couple of weeks.
I had the opportunity to go to England to visit Manchester to look at a couple of ministry projects over there. So exciting what the Lord is doing through the hard work and sacrifice of The Message Trust. If you didn’t see last week’s message, this last Sunday on the fall, I actually talk about some of the exciting things that are happening in Manchester. And then ask the question, what is the Lord saying to us now as we go into a new season of ministry in the fall?
Really looking forward to getting back into meeting you all regularly on a Sunday. Plans are becoming more concrete now. So there’ll be more details about specific dates, but we’re looking at right at the beginning of October as a hard launch, the kind of the big Sunday launch of our new life in the new building. So keep an eye out for all that information.
But please, please pray. There are so many things are lining up. They’re lining up really well, but we really need the favour of the Lord on this. We really want to make sure that we not only get the practical aspects of moving back as good as we possibly can, but the pastoral, the connection, the family, the renewing of those connections is really, really important. That’s what we’re praying about as well. So please continue to pray. Lots of exciting plans coming through. We’re really feeling the favour of God on them. And it’s just going to be, it’s really, is going to be a great fall. And I don’t say that with any hyperbole. We really believe that the Lord has spoken and it’s going to be an exciting ministry time.
So thank you for your love, your support, your giving, your encouragement. You’re an amazing group of people. We do miss having you all together and seeing your faces, but we know you’re there and by the time you see this video we will have had the barbecue at the Madden’s house. I think there’s almost 40 people coming. So I’m going to be seriously busy! But just looking forward to all these moments of connection.
So thank you for your prayers and we’ll see you really soon. God bless.
