A Defining Moment...

At New Community tonight, Cal proclaim that THIS is a defining moment for our church (trust him on this one...some big changes are coming for the better), but before things change, we must consecrate ourselves to being used by God (Joshua 3:5). He challenged us to have unwavering confidence in the WORD of God, to have an unapologetic sensitivity to the WHISPERS of God, and to have uncompromising integrity in our WALK with God. This really lays the foundation for all the teaching at New Community this fall. In September we'll be talking about the WORD, in October the WHISPERS, and in November our WALK. And then...most likely in January, Cal will begin unpacking for the congregation his vision for the next 15 years at Northwoods!

Tonight was amazing! at first when he started talking it sounded like he was leaving! i am excited to see what God is going to do. there needs to be some changes and I am praying God moves in a powerful way all around!
I got to pray with and wrestle through some hard stuff with 2 of the high school girls. what a blessing to be able to be there for them and witness a huge leap of thier faith! exciting stuff!

You could definitely feel God in the room last night. I am so excited for what the future holds. If the entire congregation took a stand for HIS kingdom here in Peoria, there would be no limit as to what He could do through us. What a powerful message!
