We say it at StoneBridge every week. Come, Connect, Make a Difference.
Come as You Are.
We want to be like Jesus. And Jesus was "accused" of being a "Friend of Sinners." I pray that we will be "accused" of that at StoneBridge. That puts us in some pretty fine company.
With God through His Son Jesus and with each other. (also through His Son Jesus)
A Family. With a Heavenly Father who loves us.
Make a Difference
Today. This Sunday. Wow. The StoneBridge Family made a huge difference.
69 orphans were pledged to be sponsored today.
These children in Zambia through the Family Legacy ministry called "The Father's Heart," will now receive education and discipleship.
I heard of at least two families who were struggling financially because one of the spouses had been laid off and they still sponsored a child. I know God honors sacrifical giving.
I was reminded of Proverbs 19:17. "Whoever is kind to the poor, lends to the Lord, and He will reward them for what they have done."
I am both humbled and inspired by the response of our church family today. From the ones who shared, to the video, to the One Sunday volunteers, and to the 69 families who sponsored a child, I was and am deeply moved.
All of you are truly Making a Difference.
Thrilled to see what God is doing and humbled to be a part of sharing His love to the nations.
P.S. There are 34 left and I am truly believe next Sunday every one of these children will have a sponsor. If you want to sponsor one today send me an email at Joe.McKinney@Sbridge.org and I will send you back a link for you to sponsor one of His Kids.
