Hello Life Stream Church Family,
Leaning on a swing set behind a middle school building eight years ago, my new friend Ken said to me, “Who knows, maybe God will supply this property for our church. Let’s pray on it!” We bowed our heads to pray.
“Like that is ever going to happen,” was the initial thought going through my mind.
Immediately after that faithless spirit began to nestle into my heart, I felt the soft autumn wind blow across my face, as an indication The Spirit of God was tangibly present in this moment.
Sensing God was in this moment I then heard in my mind as if in an audible voice, “You just wait, I am going to do something more amazing than you can ever ask or imagine.”
God has answered our prayers! The desire to be a blessing to the people of West Michigan has been multiplied again and again in our midst.
- If our growth trends continue, we will be seeing one thousand people plus for Sunday worship not on ‘bigger Sundays’ but on a regular basis.
- Our high school youth space is currently overcrowded.
- The desire is we stay ahead of the curve and prepare “Making Room.”
Introducing “Making Room” – A three-year capital campaign. The goal is to raise $1,000,000 over the next three years to accomplish a series of projects that will lead us into the next chapter of our ministry. (Project information page attached here – Making Room.)
We received initial offering and pledges on Sunday, November 8, 2015. Please prayerfully consider what God is asking you to do to “Make Room” for your church family to be a blessing to the people of West Michigan. If you are interested in giving online – whether it is a recurring gift or a one time gift – you may do so here. If you do not have a current log in for online giving, please follow the prompts to create an account.
In Jesus’ Love,
Pastor Jim on behalf of our Life Stream Board and Staff Team
