Dayspring, it’s amazing to reflect on everything that God is doing in our midst! Over 140 people have become members of Dayspring in 2017 alone! Our average worship attendance in the second half of this year is up to 530, with an additional 40-50 people watching online every Sunday! We have more children in our nursery, pre-school and 4th-5th grade class than we have ever had. Dayspring Student Ministry (6th-12th grade) is averaging over 65 students on Sunday nights this fall! We have more Groups and more people in Groups than we have ever had! We served the Hurricane-affected areas of Houston and Beaumont by providing nearly $20,000 worth of flood buckets. The list of stories of God’s work could go on and on!
None of this could have happened without 3 factors working in unison. First, the grace and goodness of Christ has been so evident throughout Dayspring’s life. Second, God has richly blessed us with an extraordinary staff who as missionaries among us who daily introduce our community to the life-changing power of God’s love. They make a tangible difference in the lives of every individual and family throughout our community. Finally, Dayspring’s success and growth is made possible by your financial faithfulness. Without your financial support, we could not afford to create so many opportunities for people in the Dayspring Diamond (S. Tyler, Flint, Bullard and Whitehouse) to experience the life-changing, transformational love of Jesus Christ.
As we look toward next year, would you and your family will consider a three-fold commitment to God’s work at Dayspring in 2018: prayer, service and finances? Will you consider giving sacrificially of your time, talent and finances so that Dayspring can continue to feed our love-starved culture by empowering Christ-filled lives? This is who God is calling us to be, and it can only become a reality when we show up for each other in the same way that God showed up for us. Thank you for taking the time to prayerfully consider the gift that you will offer God in the coming year!
Peace in Christ,
