I love our church. I love the heart of our people. I love how we pursue the Lord and people. I loved the Toledo Campus going door to door, and hosting a fall festival. I love our Children’s ministry and leaders, and the annual chili cookout. So glad the Lord led Pastor Matt and Mandie to Compelled. I love Pastor Rick’s heart as we gathered for worship team training and he encouraged us. I love Pastor Dusty getting our students reaching out. I love filling shoeboxes for the Lord and operation Christmas Child. I love that we are truly “Compelled by love.” I’m am grateful to be part of our Compelled Community.
At Compelled this weekend we stressed our Family Value of Relationships. “People grow better in relationship than they do in isolation.” We had people stand and publicly give testimony and thank those who encouraged them in the faith and brought them to Jesus. This was moving, encouraging, and filled us with faith. I loved it. We heard powerful stories of people reaching out in friendship and love for Christ and lives were changed and of course eternities.
We must be those people that are the encourager now. As we have received, now let’s give. Make a difference in someone’s life. Start a small group. Call someone you have been missing. Write out a prayer for a struggling friend and mail it. Send a text, buy a coffee, open your home and your heart and see what God will do.
Keep being missional Compelled Church! We are making a difference.
(NOTE: All the gatherings were awesome but the 11 am worship was amazing. The place was packed and so many people were pursuing the heart of God. It was so powerful.)
