grow your life, change your world
Dear Grabill Missionary Church Family
There is little doubt that the times in which we are living are filled with unprecedented challenges. Anxiety about the future is incredibly high. The voices of uncertainty and a climate of pessimism overshadow the lives of many people.
Here’s another reality: times like these provide people of faith with extraordinary opportunities to have significant impact on the lives of people in our community. If we are to make the most of these opportunities, we must be willing to act when others are hesitating. We need to clearly state our vision for the future, and then move with courage toward it.
Yes, our future is affected by the economic realities of the day. However, those realities are not what define our future. Our future is defined by the God we follow. So, it is with a spirit of faith in God, and optimism about our future, that we present this vision for the next phase of our journey as a congregation here at Grabill Missionary Church.
Because God has blessed us
and used us
in this place
for a long time…
…we invite Him to continue to bless us and use us in the future.
Our purpose remains the same…
To exalt the God who has blessed us…
To help believers on their spiritual journey…
