The wait is (almost, finally) over! This Sunday is our Grand Opening Worship Service @ ICS. We’ve prayed over the space, asked God to anoint and fill it, divided up the load of serving the masses with each other, invited our friends and family, spread the good news as far as we could, and served our community all in preparation. Now it’s time to do the work God has called us to do in building up, equipping, and empowering people who CHANGE THE WORLD.

Would you begin to pray now for Sunday? Pray for God to do what only He can do. Pray for each other as you volunteer and serve one another. Pray for our church to grow in numbers and depth and love. Pray lives are changed and that people would come to know Jesus!

Be expectant. Anticipate great things! Be ready for God to move. See every opportunity as a chance to minister to a hurting and lonely world. Be dealers of hope! Be the church! One thing I’ve learned over the years is you cannot produce a movement of God, but you can prepare for one. Lord, your church is prepared!

If you are scheduled to volunteer, please:

  1. confirm on planning center

  2. arrive at your proper time.

If you are not scheduled to volunteer, would you strongly consider arriving at ICS at/around 10am for Happy Hour? We have arranged some special baked treats for everyone to enjoy in our 5/f welcome lobby. It’s a great opportunity to connect with your church family AND welcome new people into the New Heights family. It’s your time to do what you do so well; showing people they Belong at New Heights. Here’s a tenative schedule for the day:

9:15am-9:45am: volunteer teams arrive at scheduled times to set up , rehearse, etc

9:45am: prayer time in 5/f chapel

10am: happy hour

10:20am: chapel doors open

10:30am-11:45am: Worship Service

Thankful for you all! I’m praying for you this week

-Pastor Brad
