Going Forward

Taking Advantage of the opportunities before us

slide2

“Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead”

Phil. 3:12-13

“The future belongs to those who see possibilities before they become obvious”

The church has

many opportunities

“Opportunities Missed”

There was a very cautious man

Who never laughed or played,

He never risked, he never tried

He never sang or prayed

And he one day passed away

His insurance was denied,

For since he never really lived,

They claimed he never died
