I don’t know about you, but I always enter this holiday time of year looking back and reflecting on all we have accomplished over the past year. 2015 has been a great year of service here at FBC Lewisville. We served in Guatemala; France; Brazil; Jacksonville, FL; Corpus Christi, TX; Harlingen, TX; Arlington, TX; and extensively in our own community. FBCL’s footprint covers many miles and many more lives.
We have been planning the FBCL Mission efforts for 2016, and as you know, our church has chosen a renewed focus on serving our local community. How are we going to do this? While on a recent visit with Patti LaCarter, our missionary in Brazil, I was greatly impacted by her team’s ease of sharing the gospel and inviting others to church events and worship opportunities. They found it natural to share “their story” of how Jesus is working in their lives. As we enter the season of giving, is there a better gift you can give to others than for you to share “your story”? The church calendar is full of events that can be opportunities for you to invite neighbors and co-workers to church.
Help us jump start 2016 by sharing your story and inviting others to church this Holiday Season. I look forward to seeing how FBCL will impact our local community in the coming year.
