God is doing something here at New City. Summer has not slowed us down at all. We have grown the most during the summer. Two Sundays ago, we had 43 newcomers and last Sunday, we had 34 newcomers. I don't even understand how a church of our size can have that many newcomers. It seems like a lot of them are coming back as well. We've been breaking our attendance records lately (we are at around 200). We are not about numbers, but each person represents a soul that Jesus died for.
There is a sense that God is doing something here. We've felt the presence of God in a powerful way for the last few weeks. Our worship team has been great at bring us to that sweet presence of God. People are getting the gospel, deepening their understanding of the gospel, and getting filled with the Holy Spirit, and lives are changing everyday. It's exciting!
The Current, our wednesday night worship and prayer time, has been an awesome blessing. It has slowed us down so that we can soak in His love.
We are also about launch a new discipleship ministry, more Community Groups, and a recovery ministry.
We will celebrate our second anniversary of the church on September 12, 2010. We have a lot to be thankful for and a lot to look forward to.
