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 serving in St. Paul, MN. Here are some updates from Chris and Alex about Vertical Church St. Paul.
Let’s praise the Lord for the culture of generosity He is creating at Vertical Church!
Our giving goal for February was $11,000. Because we believe God wants us to be committed to global gospel-advancement, we gave one week’s offering to our Global Partners (The Thom Family) going to the Horn of Africa which ended up being just over $3000! As a staff, we were a little concerned about not meeting our budget this month due to that special offering, but God, our great provider, had other plans.
Vertical Church, not counting the $3000 that went to the Thom Family, February was still your most generous month yet with total giving coming in at almost $13,000!
“And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. To our God and Father be glory forever and ever. Amen.”
- Philippians 4:19-20
As we announced last week, Emily Denning is transitioning from a part-time church admin into a full-time mama. With that, Jim Peterson will be transitioning into a full-time administrative/executive role for the church. We will send out more of the details behind this decision, and how we are praying the Lord will financially provide for it, but let’s pray for the Denning's and the Peterson's as both families make big transitions this month.
“You will keep the mind that is dependent on you in perfect peace, for it is trusting in you. Trust in the Lord forever, because in the Lord, the Lord himself, is an everlasting rock!”
- Isaiah 26:3-4
God has put it on our hearts to pray for 300 people to attend and hear the gospel at our Easter service. Just as we were diligent in prayer for the launch of this church, let's be diligent in praying for lost people to hear the good news of Jesus Christ. Last year we set an alarm every day at 10:02 AM to remind us to pray Luke 10:2 which says, "the harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest." Would you set that alarm again and commit to praying for the lost in our city?
