If you don’t see anyone there like you, maybe God put you there to reach people like you.
Denise and I attended church together since 1970. We helped other church plants, but this time it was different. We were grandparents now. Being the oldest couple in a young, hip church we decided “If you don’t see anyone there like you, maybe God put you there to reach people like you.” And He did.
We focused on placing more faith in Christ and stopped thinking that the church just needed our tithes and offerings. God challenged us to go beyond money and give of our time and talents as well.
Every weekend we stood at the front doors and joyfully greeted each and every person who stepped through those doors. Gradually, we saw the age range expand along with the growth of the church.
God used us in some amazing ways. In addition to first impressions, I got involved with the renovation, set-up and operations teams. I really started to see God’s goodness! We gave more of our tithes, talents and time than ever before and didn’t miss it. God took us on the journey of a lifetime.
