Heart for the House
2018 has almost come to an end. For most of us, that last part of the year is all about great food, buying and receiving gifts, and even more importantly: lots of family time.
Since the beginning of the year, through various channels, God has been speaking to Eva and me and our whole Lead Team about the importance of strengthening the family bonds within Thousand Hills. Church is so much more than an institution, an organization or a show. Church is you and me, living as a covenant family with each other, celebrating what God is doing in each other’s lives, and standing with each other when we go through hard times. We’re not yet where we want to be in terms of that family dimension, but we can be thankful that we’re making progress.
And there are so many more reasons to be thankful: for what God has done in our personal lives, such as salvations, healing, provision; for what he has done within the four walls of our church, such as amazing services, Deeper Nights, conferences; for what he is doing through our Connect Groups; and last but not least for what he is doing through our outreach activities and missions.
Heart for the House this year is all about saying thanks to God for what he has done privately and in our church family. It also is a way of saying to God: “I am on board, Lord! I want to help build and strengthen my church family!”
May I ask you to ask the Lord how you can participate in the Heart for the House offering this December to say “thank you, Lord”?
May God bless you and your family during this holiday season!On behalf of the whole Thousand Hills Lead Team,
Ps Sebastiaan & Eva van Wessem
