As we reach the end of this season of planning and preparing for our new building at 39th and Harrison, it will not be long before ground is broken and our new building will start to take physical form. But in the midst of all the decision making about what the building will look like and how we utilize our resources responsibly, the staff and elders have not forgotten what the real foundation of this church should be built on.
The words of the Gospel and true faith in the grace of Jesus Christ are the rocks on which this church will stand. The elders and staff are committed to continuing LifePoint’s mission of leading people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. As the building team makes decisions about space utilization, furnishings, and technical capabilities, the elders and staff are involved in ensuring there is clarity among everyone involved in ministry at LifePoint, which is all of us, about how we will use this gift of a new building to fulfill God’s call of reaching the people of Quincy and beyond. I can assure you that our lead pastor Brett Sanner and his staff have a passion and desire to make this happen.
During this process we have had multiple opportunities to hear from so many of you and we are encouraged by your passionate and thoughtful concern for the future and wellbeing of LifePoint as well as your commitment to God and his mission, and by your generosity in this season of transition. LifePoint is ultimately in God’s hands but he has blessed us with such wonderful people to come alongside Him in his work here.
Please continue to pray that the elders and staff are given clarity and unity on how we use our new building to fulfill our mission and that decisions are clearly understood and supported by you who attend LifePoint. Pray that any obstacles placed before or between us in the building or utilization process are obliterated and that we continue to trust in the One who has always led His church, God the Father and our lord Jesus Christ.
Grace and Peace to you all in His name.
