September Ministry News
Sept. 18th, 2015
The year is sure moving along quickly, and the fresh fall breeze is in the air. I know many of us didn't want the summer to end, but the fact that school has started has certainly reminded us of new schedules for us all. With calendars changing, and kids working on homework at night, etc... That has not gone without notice for us here at CGMF, and we are hoping that many of you are enjoying some of the changes that have transpired.
Some of our fellowship's changes we hope you are enjoying starting this month.
1. New geographical realignment in fellowship groups. With less travel, and less group rotation. Allowing Shepherd Leaders to move about, and you not having to do so quarterly.
2. Added or revised courses of discipleship. Our founding pastor worked hard with our Shepherd Leaders to enhance or redevelop some of our courses of study, even the design of its presentation. It is our prayer this has been refreshing to many of you.
3. " Bible Come To Life Dramas " once a month. Here we are going to be dealing with " LIFE Challenges ", and our first drama was on " Building My Bethel ". It was about the vital importance of developing your own personal altar. Here we saw the reflection of some Old Testament Characters come alive. I think we all had a real experience with God after this drama. The presence of God, and the effect of this presentation spoke for itself.
( Unfortunately for now this can only available in the Omaha Fellowship area. All are welcome though. )
There will be more new developments as the year unfolds, but we are thankful for what Jesus is doing in our midst. Please pray for our transitional staff, as there has been a variety of leadership changes, as Pastor Vossen takes upon new challenges at FBC and his personal ministry.
By the way, many of you have been asking for the cd of the message by Dr. Vossen on " Get UP! God's Not Finished Yet. " It is being edited and will be made available shortly. Call the office or send us note if you'd like a copy.
Please be in prayer as God continues to unveil to us His will and purposes. Be blest in your Neighborhood Fellowship Groups, and let us all pray for the Whole Body of Christ, as we enter into this final chapter of 2015.
In Grace and Love,
David And Laurie McNeil ( Transitional Ministry Coordinators )
Reverend Patrick Vossen,
