Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
"I give thanks to my God for every remembrance of you, always praying with joy for all of you in my every prayer, because of your partnership in the Gospel from the first day until now."
“Because of the LORD’s faithful love we do not perish, for His mercies never end. They are new every morning…”
"I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus."
"Once you were not a people, but now you are God's people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy."
1 Peter 2:10
We can't believe it's May already. By God's grace, this time next month, most of our team will already be in Pittsburgh, settling into their new living arrangements and jobs, and beginning the process of meeting and engaging new their neighbors, coworkers, and friends. It's great to think about everything God has done for our team over the past month. We look forward to see what God is going to accomplish in the coming months.
We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life. For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his.
Now to Him who is able to do infinitely more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
It's hard to believe that it's almost the end of Feruary already. We want to say thank you to all of you who have been praying for us and those who have partnered with us, especially as we draw closer and closer to our move date in late May and early June.
“I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now”
Thank you so much for praying for and supporting us as we seek to plant a gospel-centered church in Pittsburgh. This past month has proven to be a great blessing. As we get ready to celebrate Christmas, I am reminded that we are celebrating the very reason we are here today talking about starting a church in Pittsburgh. God became flesh and dwelt among us so that he might die for us and provide what we could not provide for ourselves – the forgiveness of sins.
I hope that you would take a few minutes and read a little about what God has been doing in the life of Missio Dei this month.
