“What you believe drives everything. The way you behave, the habits you form, the character\that defines you at your core all are driven by what you believe.”
Randy Frazee, General Editor for Believe
Praise God from whom all blessings flow! For the Lord is good, His mercy is everlasting, and His truth endures to all generations. (Psalm 100:5) Albert Einstein is given credit for the following statement, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.” This year we are doing things in a different way in order to strengthen and revitalize our church and its ministries.
Our theme and focus for the year will be “Making Disciples and Developing Leaders”. Join with us as we seek to become the premier church in Westchester County serving as a beacon of hope to individuals, families, the community, and the world. To be a premier church will require premier leaders, premier members, and premier ministries. Join with us in our unified study, “Believe”. The goal of every believer should be to become more like Christ. Also, please support our leadership development and ministry restructuring initiatives. We want to give God and those we serve our best.
Parents and adult volunteers are needed to assist with our Children and Youth Ministry Programs. Children and Youth Ministry programs and activities are an essential part of the faith development of our young people. Our goal is to have the Nursery open most Sundays excluding holidays and special days. Our goal is to have the Children’s Church operate on the first and third Sundays of each month. The “Believe” curriculum will be used by children and youth as part of our church unified study. We have a wide array of ministries that we would like to have available for our children and youth. Your volunteer participation and support will make these programs a great success.
