January 2021 Edition
Assaults to our physical, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing are rampant. We were made to thrive – but what happens when just surviving seems like a full-time job? We can’t go it alone. Scripture is replete with warnings of those who have gone rogue personally, and even those who have collectively thrown off God’s authority. In this new year, we’re passionate to see Transformed Lives and Communities through faith in Jesus Christ. If we want to see this vision realized, it’s critical that we band together under the authority of God’s Word. Please check out our new series and some exciting updates as we prepare to enter 2021!

There is strength in numbers, but only when we’re heading in the right direction! Let 2021 be a year where we passionately pursue God the Father, follow Jesus closely as Savior and Lord, and walk courageously in the power of the Holy Spirit. The new year is here. Let’s make the most of it-together!
Ashkum Permanent Site
We praise the Lord that in a challenging year, God has led us to continue moving toward a permanent site to serve Ashkum and the surround communities! By His grace, we closed on a beautiful 5-acre plot of land and have a great start on planning and saving for the new facility. Realizing this vision will take sacrifice from each of us, as well as the Lord’s mighty hand. If God is leading you to help with a year-end gift, please mark it “Invest in the Vision” to see it go directly toward the Ashkum permanent site!
God is at work in Goodland!
Please continue in daily prayer regarding our ministry partnership in Goodland, IN. May the Lord bless and deepen our unity to bring transformed lives and communities in and around Goodland!
We praise the Lord for blessing our online ministries. I’m so excited that we can stay connected, grow together, and make new friends in this way. The Lord has allowed us to upgrade our 10-year old livestream computer. This will help to create an even more engaging video presentation and will allow us to provide worship lyric overlays. We are also creating a livestream ministry space to better serve our online friends and guests. If you’d like to serve in this exciting ministry, please let us know! Our immediate need is for additional audio and video mixers.
We are excited to announce some upgrades coming to our Watseka campus. With your generosity and God’s gracious provision, we are able to provide an automatic door opener to serve guests with mobility challenges. We are blessed to update the 10-year old video computer and presentation software. We are updating to a mesh network to better serve daily ministries. Please also pray as we consider selling seven acres of farm ground to leverage it for God’s glory! More details on that to come.
Please join us this coming Sunday (both in person and online) for a special prayer service. Let’s start 2021 seeking the Lord’s face!
