TRUST GOD WITH ALL
"TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL OF YOUR HEART, LEAN NOT ON YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING, IN ALL OF YOUR WAYS ACKNOWLEDGE HIM, AND HE WILL DIRECT YOUR PATH" — PSALM 3:5-6
The past several years have been trying times for our community. You may have heard or seen on the news that in the summer of 2016 a microburst storm hit our facility on N. Tucson Blvd and ripped most of the roof completely off our building. thousands of gallons of water flooded into our auditorium damaging hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of sound and lighting equipment. We then spent the next 8 months nearly homeless as a church family. Meeting weekly in our small fellowship hall in the midst of summer, packed out to the brim, AC's could not keep up... it was tough, to say the least!
Finances were tight during this renovation, the crowd was getting thinner due to how uncomfortable and tight our setting was... but we continued to TRUST GOD. We stood on a word that we were not finished with mission God sent us to do in Tucson.
By the grace of God our facility on Tucson Blvd. was paid off and debt free. Our insurance company, after many battles, kicked in to cover the damage. Renovations made our facility better than ever! AND FINALLY on December 25, 2018, our facility sold! This was an answer to a long-awaited prayer of Pastors, leadership, and our entire community.
"For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay." - Habakkuk 2:3
The amazing part of the story has yet to be written above! At the very moment, our building was up for sale, a beautiful facility across town in our desire location became available. The price was right, the size was right, and the location was perfect! As a church family, we were able to purchase our new home on Kolb Rd. completely debt free and increase our space overall by more than three times the square footage!
Our dream has long been to better our children programs. Due to space limitations our previous facility had, we could not fully unpack ALL the vision our Pastors have for Kids & Youth. But now we can! Our new facility is more than just bigger walls or more space, our new facility is the completion of VISION and FAITH unraveling before our eyes.
"God will do what he said he would do..."
- Romans 9:5
For all who have been a piece to this journey over the last 16 years, Pastor Scotty & Jamie want to say, "Thank You for your generosity and faithfulness."
For all who have recently joined our community, we say, "buckle up! We are not done and the journey is just getting started and fun."
