Thank you again for supporting FCMC through your prayers. As I write this, it is now August 1! Seven months have passed in 2015, and God continues to be at work around the First Coast and through First Coast Missional Communities. What a privilege! This week, I wanted to share a bit about what’s going on with our church in terms of our Board of Stewards, Mission, Discipleship, and Worship.
Up first: Stewards:
At the last Stewards meeting, we talked about how the change in my schedule (becoming bi-vocational and taking an engineering job back in March) has impacted FCMC. While engagement in mission, discipleship, and worship continue to go well, we identified two areas are needing attention: general administration (meetings, schedules, and such) and communication. We’ll be talking more about that when the Stewards meet again later in the month, exploring ways to share that part of the work. Financially, we are maintaining a steady balance and celebrate being able to offer encouragement and some support to some of the ministries with whom we’ve partnered. So overall, good news for FCMC and with five months of experience with a bi-vocation pastor, it is clear that this kind of ministry can be sustained and grow. That’s exciting!
Finally, thank you again for praying and supporting FCMC. As Henry Blackaby pointed out in Experiencing God, “God is at work all around us and invites us to join Him.” Thank you for helping us to do just that! Your encouragement and prayers mean so much! And thank you for reading and for supporting God’s work at First Coast Missional Communities!
