Often times we forget about God’s faithfulness not only to us individually but also to the collective whole of the “Big C” Church around the world. God’s faithfulness to His people and His Church can be seen by looking back. We see the moments, the situations, and the experiences we have walked through realizing that we never walked through them alone, God was always present. When we neglect to remember God’s faithfulness in our past we suffer a spiritual amnesia.
Tomorrow morning we celebrate God’s faithfulness to our church family over the last 50 years. In September of 1967, First Christian Church held its first services in a downtown YMCA building, this weekend we will celebrate 50 years of ministry. It has been God’s faithfulness to us through the good times and bad, through the lean times and our times of growth. It is through looking back that we will be inspired for the next 50 years of ministry.
I am making a special invitation for you to join us tomorrow morning, September 24th at one of our two gatherings to celebrate and worship God as we remember His faithfulness to us. Let’s blow the roof off our building as we thank Him for all He has, is doing, and will continue to do through us in Saint Augustine, St. Johns County, northeast Florida, and around the world. With your help, God is going do amazing things through us!
