Dear OPC Family,
Never forget your journey; Your story of what life was like before you met Jesus; How He worked to draw you to Himself.
Never forget the people He used to lead you to Him; The prayers they prayed; The efforts they made; Never forget how it first felt to know that your sins were forgiven, that you were secure in His love, that you were sure you were headed to heaven.
This is why people who are far from God are near to our hearts. Because at one time, this was us – and we have not forgotten. Oak Pointe’s NEXT campaign calls us to make the same kind of difference for people God longs to reach, through our church. Just imagine; the NEXT person who will meet Jesus because of our efforts to reach out; the NEXT family that will find help and healing in our community because we invited them in; the NEXT generation that will discover church is awesome because we worked to make it incredible; the NEXT decade of Oak Pointe’s life that will be even greater than the past two decades, because we are trusting God for just that.
NEXT involves facility expansions and new campuses; but please understand that these things are only tools to help us go forward. This season of sacrifice and giving is about the future of OPC and our passion for people who haven’t met Jesus yet.
“Never forget.” Let those simple words motivate you to dream big and consider all that God might do NEXT through YOU!
