In 2018, Evergreen Church celebrates its 30th anniversary. God has done so much in us and through us – church plants, salvations, and discipleship. But what does our future hold?
We are excited to roll out some ways that the Evergreen locations will unite for what we are praying is even greater Gospel impact in the future. Kingdom Builders will be a huge part of that because it’s all about Acts 1:8 and our mission to advance the Gospel locally and globally through various initiatives and church planting.
The generosity of our saints and the sacrifices they are willing to make for Jesus and the advancement of his church has helped us get this far. Kingdom Builders is a vision campaign that unites generosity and mission in a way that allows us to keep taking steps towards bringing God more glory.
On January 7th, we start to roll out plans for 2018 Kingdom Builders in a 4-week shared series. Please start to pray about how God might have you be involved in building His Kingdom in 2018!
Evergreen, The Rock & the Urban Refuge are part of a larger association of churches called Great Commission Churches. A newsletter is printed quarterly to provide information on how God is using GCC in His Kingdom. Please go online and read all about it.
