Our church is being used for God’s glory in the midst of many challenges. You can get a small taste of this glory when you read our cover story this month which details the recent influx of visitors we have been having.
What better way to start the new year than with an increase in the number of new people visiting our church? So far this year, we are on pace to have the most Sunday morning visitors we’ve had since 2011. Between January and February, we have already had at least 82 first-time visitors; that’s a remarkable 41 visitors per month that are joining us for worship and Sunday School!
God is certainly at work in our community and is drawing people to our church. The entire staff has a burden for being good stewards of these guests that God has entrusted to us, and the amount of time we as staff invest in following up with visitors reflects this burden. Our ultimate goal is to make meaningful connections with every person that comes to TBC Cayce so that they will be more likely to join our community and to experience God working in their life.
A few months ago, I was approached about having Governor Mike Huckabee preach at our church. For those of you who don’t know, he is a former governor of the state of Arkansas and a candidate in the upcoming presidential election.
I immediately saw that having him come preach at TBC Cayce would be a great honor as well as an excellent opportunity. Even if he were not running for office, it would be a joy to have him.
Wouldn’t it be awesome to be part of the only church that didn’t need to ask for volunteers or workers because there were always people willing to help out?
We are blessed to be at a church that has many servant-hearted members, and I want to begin by thanking so many of you who work all the time and are rarely publicly acknowledged or rewarded.
