I spend a lot of time thinking about the wonderful group of people who make up Evangel Church…
The world we live in is becoming a dangerous place. Never a day passes without violence and tragedy coming nearer and nearer where we live and raise our families. The news is filled with reports of terror, violence, irreverence, hatred, danger, cynicism and skepticism.
Where can we find a safe and wholesome place? Where can we find a peaceful, healthy, happy, holy place? Where can we find a place with answers for the crying hunger of our hearts? Are there people who really love each other? If I find them will they welcome me? Is there a holy and wholesome place where the air sweet with the aroma of God?
There are places like that. Evangel is one of them. We are far from perfect but we are consistently devoted to following Jesus and living out His life with others. We regularly seek the power of God to keep the commands of God and humbly admit it when we fail.
At Evangel we are a place and we are a people. We have been for over 80 years. We are a place where you can go for truth. We are a place where you can go for an encouraging word. We are a place where people are going to be honest with you. We are a safe place for your family. We a a devoted place where you can get a sense of the presence of God.
We are a people who for decade after decade have lifted up the Name of Jesus in praise and worship and we will, God-willing until Jesus returns to earth. When you gather with us the Word will be opened every week. People will love your children and listen to them and teach them the things of God that will shape them into the people they should be. A healthy church is an irresistible community of love. That is our goal at Evangel.
Who do you know who needs us? Imagine the good you could do by inviting them?
