As with any startup church, one of the biggest issues is finances. And especially with a church like ours that is focused on reaching the unchurched and the “de-churched” (those that have walked away from traditional churches), we have to fight the typical stereotype that churches only want people’s money. This has been a frustration for us, but we knew this was a part of church planting.
But in the things that truly count – people committing their life to Christ, changed lives and people getting excited about using their gifts to impact Freiburg – Watermark is doing really well. Last Sunday we saw one of our church neighbors give her heart to Christ. She was invited by one of our team the week before.
And the week before that, a man that told me he is NOT a believer came to church because an angel appeared to him in a dream and told him to come visit our church. He loved it! He took a bunch of business cards and said he would invite all of his friends. He came back last week and was just as excited.
Please continue to pray for Watermark… God is doing great things here and we’re excited to be a part of it!
