With the current economic fiasco going on in our country there is a tendency for churches to pretty much put things on hold until this thing blows over. Basically play it safe.
Now, there is no doubt we should use wisdom in our decisions, especially right now, but the church MUST keep moving forward. In fact I would argue that it is during the difficult times in a nation that people tend to look to God for answers. (Think about the Nation of Israel in the Old Testament, and for a more modern example think about how people began to look to God on September 11, 2001)
People are looking for answers, and the church has THE answer. So rather than hunker down--- we've decided to advance.
We have 2 major initiatives right now that we are working on. First, we will be adding a new worship venue on-site at our Seneca campus (for more info click here). Second we are actively looking for a more visible location for our Toccoa, Ga campus (which will help us reach more people).
Both of these initiatives will cost money. Exactly how much, we will know very soon. But here is the bottom line. The Bible is clear that we need to "seize opportunities", and that's what we're going to do.
If you believe in the vision of Foothills Community Church I want you to begin to think and pray about how you can help. We're here to reach people who don't know Jesus Christ; people who are hurting, oppressed and depressed.
I believe that we are going to see a movement of God unlike we have ever seen before! Are you with me?
