Pastor Mark Driscoll gives a review of Mars Hill Church’s last 12 months as we approach the fiscal year close at the end of this month.
Since last summer, we’ve seen over 1,000 people baptized and now have 14 churches in four states. We now have some 8,000 people in over 600 Community Groups, where people have been able to grow in their faith in and through community, and hundreds more work through the hard issues of life in Redemption Group.
We rejoice in that we were able to help anyone. Even if it were just one person who met Jesus, one person who grew in him, one person who was served on behalf of him—we would rejoice. But that it’s so many people in so many locations across so many states, it’s absolutely amazing.
For those of you who call Mars Hill Church home, thank you. This has been the best year we’ve ever had in our 15 years as a church, by a long shot. And we believe that God has only begun what he’s purposed and planned for us.
With the fiscal year concluding, we’d ask you to give generously, pray faithfully, and serve vigilantly as we regroup and get ready for more growth in the fall, when we start the Esther sermon series, which will be followed by an Ephesians sermon series at the beginning of 2013.
To our church family, we love you, appreciate you, and thank God for you. Remember your church this summer, and pray, give, care, serve, and love it.
