We believe God has called us to be a multiplying church that trains up and sends out leaders to share the Gospel. Chris and Alex Asmus are now 'on location' to plant in St. Paul, MN. Here are some updates from Chris and Alex about Vertical Church St. Paul.
We have a trailer! Jesus said, “whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be done” (Mark 11:24). After months of believing and praying for a trailer, He has done it. Woodland Park Community Church in Woodland Park, CO called Pastor Chris this week and said they would like to purchase the trailer for us. Thank God for the increasing generosity of the saints in Woodland Park and their passion to see the gospel advance.
We have a vehicle to pull the trailer! This week, Trinity City Church informed us that they would like to gift us a 15-passenger van that has an engine powerful enough to pull our trailer. Would you also take a minute to praise God for surrounding us with gospel co-laborers who are sacrificing so that Vertical Church may “abound in every good work” (2 Corinthians 9:8).
Pray for Launch Sunday! Only one thing must happen on Launch Sunday: Manifest Presence. Pray that through the worship of Jesus, the prayers of the saints, the preaching of the Word, and the proclamation of the gospel we would all experience our favorite two words: Him Here.
Pray for Team Unity. God is standing willing and ready to pour out the “immeasurable power of his greatness toward us who believe (Ephesians. 1:19). The only ones who can mess this up is us. May we “make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace” (Ephesians. 4:3).
We wanted to remind you that there is no Launch Team gathering this Sunday. This is the last week before our two preview services, so enjoy some rest and spend time in prayer for Launch Sunday.
Giving: Our Giving Goal this month is $10,000, and we have received $9,908.00! We thank God and we thank you for such incredible generosity! Truly, Jesus is slowly making this church more like Himself. Today is the last day of the month and we only need $92 dollars to reach our goal! Would you prayerfully consider giving today?
