The purpose and heart of Fountain of Life is about seeing people connected to Jesus for eternity. Luke 3:6 speaks to the vision – all people will see God’s salvation. Verses 4 & 5 describe the work that we have to do – to get everything out of the way that could keep people from coming to Jesus. We want to pave the way so that people can get to Jesus.
Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him. Every valley shall be filled in, every mountain and hill made low. The crooked roads shall become straight, the rough ways smooth. And all people will see God’s salvation
There are 3 goals that God has led us to focus on as we pave the way for the future.
Our parking lot is the first encounter that a visitor or guest has with our church. We don’t want our parking lot to literally become a stumbling block for people who are trying to come to Jesus. Paving the parking lot is our first step to paving the way for people to have access to all of the blessings that our church has to offer through Jesus. 30 years ago, people invested in the parking lot, Now it is our opportunity to invest in the future!
A new parking lot can last for thirty years. We don’t know everything that will happen during the next 30 years, but one thing that we do know is that there will be children who grow up in our church, graduate, and go off to college and start their own families!
One of the passions of The Fountain has always been children. We are planning to add a staff position to lead this ministry. Great leaders come with great ideas. The second goal of the capital campaign is to create a ministry fund that can be used by this new leader to accomplish the vision for family ministry so they may pave the way for the next generation!
God keeps bringing more and more people to connect to Jesus through Fountain of Life. At this point, the average in-person worship attendance is at the same level as it was prior to 2019. This doesn’t even include the 50+ families who worship online! Every week, we have new guests that become regular attendees. In 2022, we already have over 40 people who are transferring or indicated they want to become new members. It is exciting to be part of a growing church. As we continue to grow, we want to be prepared to make developments and improvements to our facilities that will be needed in order to accommodate that growth. The third objective of the capital campaign will be to create a Capital Improvements fund.
Your prayers and financial contributions will help us pave the way at Fountain of Life. You can give one time or faithfully commit a pledge that can be combined with others to help us reach our goal over the next three years.
