State of the Church (Part 3)

State of the Church
Last week the pastors of Celebration Community Church met again with Todd Brown, CEO of Brown Church Development Group. We have partnered with BCDG to provide a ministry assessment of where we are as a church and what we need to do to fulfill our vision of being a church of 2000 in worship attendance by the end of this decade.
BCDG has compiled extensive information in what they call their GPS-Growth Positioning Study and the results are OFF THE CHARTS PHENOMINAL!
Todd told a gathering of our church board, staff and ministry leaders that C3 is the most balanced and healthy church he has ever had the pleasure of working with. We could not be paid a greater compliment than that. We have strived since our inception at being a church that was evenly balanced when it comes to the five purposes our church is built upon. Worship, Fellowship, Discipleship, Evangelism and Ministry.
I want to take this opportunity to remind you that:
It is through the church that Christians plug into God’s power.
It is through the church that Christians connect with God’s people.
It is through the church that Christians study God’s principles.
It is through the church that Christians learn God’s plan.
It is through the church that Christians fulfill God’s purpose.
This Sunday at all five of our services Pastor Brant Rice and I will deliver the annual C3 State of the Church address while continuing our series on telling “My Story”. I encourage all of you who can attend to do so.
Your pastor and partner in ministry,
