13 years ago a small group of dedicated followers of Jesus got together in a series of home meetings. Over the course of the next year they would continue to meet in homes for prayer and Bible study until they held the first official worship service in September of 2004 as Live Oak Christian Church.
Their legacy continues to this very day.
What will our legacy be? 13 years from now, what will people say about our faith? About our impact? What will our story be?
The GREATER Initiative is all about our story ... our legacy. What are we building, not just for today, but for tomorrow as well?
Today I want to invite you be a part of something greater. We've been talking about "greater faith for greater impact through greater generosity;" for the next 2 weeks we will be laying out the specifics of how we will become GREATER. Then, on OCTOBER 16, we will be holding ONE worship service, asking everyone to bring their commitments to the Greater Initiative.
The next 3 weeks will be the most important to date in the life of our church.
- Join me this Sunday as I talk about what God can do through us, together.
- Join me next Sunday as we lay out the specific plans for our church over the next 2 years.
- Join me October 16 as we watch God provide $2.215 million in 2 year commitments!
As our friend Gerrick Taylor says, "today is a great day to get better!?
