Finishing Well (& a BIG Thank-You)

I want to start by giving a big thank-you, to YOU!

This year,

Thank YOU for staying strong in your faith – this year we have been amazed how strong and resilient our Church is

Thank YOU for your generosity – in a season of many unknowns and some financial hardships as well as blessings all of our locations, Yokohama, Yokosuka and Atsugi have maintained stable giving and we have been able to save money towards future venue leases.

Thank YOU for staying connected – the more connected we are digitally sometimes means the less connected we are to close friends. Through our dream teams and connect groups we have seen more people added to our Church community than ever before

Thank YOU for sharing your faith – we have been able to reach many people this year who we might not have been able to reach otherwise, and have seen their lives changed and get baptised. This includes young Japanese, foreigners in Japan, people overseas and even elderly people in Japan!

Thank YOU for owning the vision – While we might not have made the right decisions at every moment, I believe we did our best to convey the “why” behind the “what” and in a season of many opinions and views, our Church is more united than ever.

Thank YOU for not just “attending” Church but “being” the Church – In 2020 we have learnt more than ever that Church is not just a service, or a message or worship, but the Church is all about connecting with God and connecting with people.

2 Timothy 4:7 says “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.”

In 2021 we will be resuming regular in-person services but let us take these lessons learnt with us into the next year.

Let us finish this year strong – how we end one season is how we begin the next.

For the next 2 Sundays (12/27 & 1/3) we will not have in-person gatherings but please join us on Zoom at 9AM to say hello, worship and pray and online for our services.

See you on Sunday and Merry Christmas!

Josh & Yuki.
