2018 Annual report

From Pastor Jason

Faith Bible Chapel exists to reach others with the hope of Jesus Christ and to make a difference in the city of Arvada and beyond. We do so through Sunday services, small groups and outreach events that aim to both welcome and disciple the body of believers.  These efforts are all about loving people, in response to the Great Commandment and the Great Commission, and this is our goal.

 

With our annual report, we are able to evaluate the work we are doing, to see if this goal is being met. This report provides us the opportunity to understand what’s working, what’s growing and what needs improvement. Many people believe that church isn’t about the numbers, but it is! Scripture shows us repeatedly that God cares about the numbers. We know that thousands were fed and baptized in the New Testament, because someone counted! Every number has a name and every name has a story and God cares deeply for all of them.

 

I hope you will join with me in praying for the year 2019, for those that are looking to find hope in Him and for Faith Bible Chapel. It’s our privilege as a church to serve God with all that we have been blessed with, lets continue to do so with renewed faith and love both for Jesus Christ and for others.

 

With much appreciation,

 

P. Jason

Jesus gave us hope.  My whole life I’ve struggled with depression.  Coming to Faith, I feel God’s presence and know that I’m loved.  Fear and worry don’t hold me back anymore, I’m FREE!

My tiredness seemed inconsequential after this morning. My complaints about having to take so much time to prepare seemed petty.  It all reminded me why we are doing this, To be Jesus to a hurting world.  To pray for each other.  To care for each other.  To learn more about Jesus together and learn to be more like Him.

Yesterday was our big annual Christmas open house... we collected over two huge totes full of food for the Arvada Food Bank. Our small group and other amazing people from Faith reached out and loved on our neighbors, our coworkers, and our teammates well. Good job emulating Jesus' awesomeness to the world!
