The Next Step Campaign is a 24 month campaign kicking off on January 28
Our community is strategically located between San Francisco and Sacramento. It is the home of Travis Air Force Base and is the seat of the Solano County government. It is part of the most ethnically diverse metropolitan area in the nation. For many people, it is a bedroom community where they sleep at night while commuting to another community for work by day. And it is one of the most unchurched communities in the entire nation. It is filled with tens of thousands of people who need the hope we have in Christ.
The people of our community struggle with many things including:
busy lives and over-extended schedules, financial pressures, strained relationships, inner turmoil, emptiness, loneliness, shattered marriages, fractured families, broken hearts, and many people have little or no connection with God.
This community needs our church more than ever. It needs us to be healthy. It needs us to be faithful in loving them, serving them, praying for them, and reaching out to them. Our community needs us to be Next Step followers of Jesus – people who are eager to the take the next step in following Jesus and living His mission in our community. Our Next Step Campaign has a financial component that will help us take an important step in being able to purchase a future home for our church. But Next Step is about so much more than raising money to purchase a future home for our church.
When each of us individually and all of us collectively are willing to pray, “God, how do you want us to invest our lives in building your kingdom?”, then we are truly willing to take the steps necessary in becoming more like Jesus.
Jesus said, “A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone when he is fully trained will be like his teacher.” (Luke 6:40) This is what our Next Step Campaign is all about. It’s about us becoming more like Jesus in how we love, live, serve, and give for the honor and glory of God.
