Northwest is gonna throw a party and we want you and your family to be there. On Sunday, February 18th Northwest Community Church will celebrate our 8th birthday with worship, stories of life change, baptisms, and of course BBQ! As we celebrate God's faithfulness we are also going to look to the future and the vision God has given us for leading people to experience a new life in Christ.
Living in light of God's faithfulness over the past 8 years, the Leadership Team has prayerfully developed some strategic facility goals for Northwest's future designed to better serve the needs of our church and community. The strategic aim for the future Northwest campus is best summed up in the 4 P's of the Serve the City Center.
The strategic facility goals for Northwest over the next 5 years are broken down into 3 broad categories: Short Range, Mid Range, and Long Range Plans.
In order to pursue these strategic goals, the Leadership Team has initially asked the members of Northwest to generously and sacrificially give $100,000 to the Northwest Facility Fund in order to cover projected first-year costs for operating in our own facility. In light of God's faithfulness we trust that God will provide through the generosity of His people. There is a beautiful, biblical example of this type of process in Exodus 35 and 36 where Moses comes to the people of Israel with plans to construct the Tabernacle and asks the people to sacrificially give to the project.
"So the whole community of Israel left Moses and returned to their tents. All whose hearts were stirred and whose spirits were moved came and brought their sacred offerings to the Lord. They brought all the materials needed for the Tabernacle...Both men and women came, all whose hearts were willing. They brought to the Lord their offerings." (Exodus 35:20-22) What happens next is even more amazing. The generosity levels were so great that Moses had to actually go back to the people of Israel and ask them to stop giving! "Men and women, don't prepare any more gifts for the sanctuary. We have enough!...Their contributions were more than enough to complete the whole project." (Exodus 36:6-7)
Once again, in light of God's faithfulness we believe God can supply more than enough.
