Lead Pastor’s Update: Being a Disciple of Sacrifice
As we close the month of February, I remember the people of African descent who have contributed so much to the landscape of our global community. I think about the strength of Rosa Parks who decided to stand up for justice and the four little girls (Addie Mae Collins, Denise McNair, Carole Robertson, and Cynthia Wesley) who died in the bombing at 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, AL. So many people have made so many sacrifices for us to be here today.
Sacrifice is difficult, but it is possible. Through Impact’s Capital Campaign, I Share …We Impact we sacrifice for the future of our children, youth and adults. We join the long list of those who came before us and we are leaving behind a legacy of faith and hope for all people. As you close the month of February today, consider leaving a legacy of generosity by donating to the ISWI campaign. Your donation helps us build for the future as we continue to share the love of Jesus Christ.

Hope Remains Because God Is Always with Us
Our hearts and our souls yearn for the day when violence, pain, and suffering will cease. Our world mourns the loss of 20 children and six adults in Newtown, Connecticut, the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. Our hearts also break as we mourn the loss of children and adults around the world who have been the victims of violence. Even this morning the Atlanta news reported the death of a fourteen year old boy in Gwinnett County found dead in his home. Let’s continue to commit ourselves to peace and to press forward in our faith. I believe God’s grace remains present and that we can walk in the hope that God is still in control. Thank you for praying for the families and for the people whose lives are forever changed by the tragedies they have experienced. read more ›
As we move through life, often we don’t notice the heavy and nonproductive baggage that we carry with us – until we fail to reach a goal that we could have attained had our loads been lighter and constructive. Taking occasional inventory of our baggage is essential as we live into the God-given visions for our lives, individually and as a church family. Let us pray together for wisdom and courage as we choose daily to nurture our baggage or our futures.
