A MESSAGE FROM PASTOR MATT:
As you now know with regards to our Avon Campus, we are moving forward with Kingsway Christian School in their interest to purchase the entire campus. There is still work to be done, prayers that need prayed, and discussions to be had. I was able to share much of what is on my heart, including the why and the reality of where our church is financially Sunday, August 11th. If you have not yet heard that announcement, you can take a listen here < video >. We are excited about the potential future God has put in front of us. As a church, we have some hard conversations yet to come. These are really big, important, and emotionally charged things. I want you to know that’s why the entire Kingsway Church leadership team from elders to our executives to our staff are committed to seeking God’s will together. This is our church. It is not just my church.
There are multiple ways for you to get information and to ask questions. Please commit to seeking out the answers and clarity you need in any of the following ways:
- Sunday, August 25 is our next CORE Leader Meeting. Our CORE Leaders are the people in our church who serve in various servant leadership roles. These roles are defined by each ministry department. At our next meeting, we intend to do a deep dive with that group and answer all their questions.
- A Congregation Town-hall meeting on Wednesday, August 28th. We will present the same material to everyone else in the church and take all questions from you as well. It will be held in the Worship Center starting at 6:30 pm. We will record the presentation portion of that Wednesday meeting and place the video online for everyone that cannot make it that night.
- Weekly Town-hall meetings August 25 - September 15. We are committed to giving you as much time as you want or need to talk through all of this. So, we are going to schedule weekly town-hall type meetings for you to come and dialogue with us about whatever needs to be talked about and will inform you of those details in the coming weeks.
This is still God’s church. Our mission is still to become like Christ by celebrating His finished work, living like Him in this world, making Him known to the Ends of the Earth. Can I just say, there is no one in the world I would rather do this with than you either! I absolutely love our Church.
