Making Room–Respond

There is a word that keeps coming to my mind when I think about the Making Room campaign.  The word is respond.  This decision to make a move and consequently raise money is about us responding to what God has done in and through our church over the last two years.  We have seen our church grow in amazing ways.  We have seen people come to Christ. God is changing lives. People are taking the love of Christ all over the world.

Every time we have added a service, parked inconveniently, stopped going to the 10am service, we are responding to the growth. We are taking steps to make it easier for new people to come and connect at The Grove Church.  Now we need to respond again.  We had 855 people at church on Sunday.  God is continuing to bless us with more people who want to worship God and follow Jesus at our church, and now we need to respond to that.

That is why we are calling the campaign Making Room.  There are more people in NWA that need Jesus and would be able to connect with him at our church if we were only willing to make room for them.  So how will we respond?  Let’s ask God how he wants us to respond.  We as a leadership team believe that God wants us to respond by making this move.  Now it is up to each of us individually to ask God how he wants us to respond.  We need to pray.  We need to listen to what God has to say.  Then we need to have the courage to respond.
