But, I believe God can do something unbelievable through his people, if we tap into our unfair advantage, of the Holy Spirit. A few weeks back, we gathered as a church, to seek God in this matter. We spent an evening in prayer, worship, and idea gathering. Out of that meeting, a business review team was assembled. The progress of this team can be visited at this blog http://www.outthinkin.blogspot.com/
We refuse to remain reactive here at Grace Community, we want to be Proactive. Because we serve an amazing GOD! Continue to pray and watch God work. I can't wait to see what unfolds.
