Continue To Extend

At the annual meeting, I shared with you the theme and the vision for this church year. It was summarized with one word: extend. North Main has done many ministry events to try to reach the masses and share the gospel. Jesus did the same thing, but he was intentional as He spent time with His chosen few. He made himself known to them and really started to develop close relationships with them. It was these 11 men in close relationship with the Lord that carried on His mission. As a result, you are reading this today. 
 
Currently, our small groups have adopted 27 businesses, schools, fire departments, nursing homes and police precincts. Most every small group has made initial contact and have blessed these adopted groups during the first quarter. The small groups have broken the ice and these adopted groups in the community saw very quickly that we had pure motives in reaching out to build a relationship with them.

Now, as the second quarter of the church year is coming to a close, it is time to be intentional with our adopted groups to try to further our relationship with them. Continue to bless them. Take them some cookies. Celebrate their birthdays during that quarter. Cater lunch or breakfast. Think of creative ways to bless them and to spend time with them. 

This time, get to know their names and find out who they really are. What do they like? What are their dislikes? What are their needs? What does their family make-up look like? Do they have any religious background? These are intentional and repeated visits to the same place to develop a few deeper relationships.

Dale Coble continues to do a great job coordinating each small group and he is available with questions or needs that arise as you start to reach out to your adopted group. If your small group found out something you need to communicate to the church where we could take a step further to deepen the relationships with our community, let Dale know.
Thank you for extending yourself and your small group! It is already making a difference in our community!

Super Bowl

BROADCAST STUDENT MINISTRY

The month of February was a busy month for our students as we prepared for our annual Disciple Now Weekend, March 6-8. Each February, Drew and Stacy Thornton host a Broadcast Super Bowl Party. We had a great night of fellowship as we did community together. Jaydon Unger did an awesome job leading a devotion for the event. Thank you parents and leaders for providing an enormous spread of food for the event! Thank you Drew and Stacy Thornton for your hard work and opening up your home for us. You are a blessing!.

AWANA Grand Prix

Children's Ministry

Spring will soon be upon us and I am excited about what God has in store for North Main. We have had a busy February with our Children’s Choir sharing a beautiful message recently on how God is “Our lighthouse” during our Sunday worship as well as our AWANA Grand Prix. Looking ahead, we are beginning our 3rd Good News Club at Stony Mill Elementary school with our forty kids in attendance. We also are getting ready for two big events this Spring and Fall. VBS is coming! This month we will  have our first large VBS meeting on March 15 in the CLC immediately after service with lunch being provided. We will also begin collection for our Easter Egg hunt at Grove Park on April 11th. These are two wonderful opportunities to be a part of reaching out in our community to share the good news of Christ. You can sign up in your small group bible study classes or by letting me know.
