Dear Friends and Family,

We hope you’re enjoying the rebirth of spring; the trees budding, the warmth of the sun, and the promise of new life. We are loving the beautiful weather here in Colorado and we’re excited to update you on our progress in starting Center Point Community Church this upcoming Fall!

In the last little while we’ve been busy with all kinds of entrepreneurial pieces involved in starting a new church. We decided on a logo (see above). We bought a domain name for Center Point’s website – www.CenterPointDenver.org. It isn’t operational yet, but hopefully before the start of summer the site will be up and running. We continue to explore possible locations to hold worship services. We’ve met with a lawyer concerning the legalities of becoming a non-profit corporation. The list goes on.

One of the most exciting experiences we’ve had as of late was attending a weeklong training conference for church planters called Thrive. There, we were challenged to develop along two tracks: our own spiritual development as pastors and our practical strategies and practices as church planters. The Holy Spirit was present and we emerged from that week better equipped both as people and as planters.

One of the ways the Spirit convicted us following that week was in the area of prayer. Prayer is foundational for our work. Your prayers are foundational for our work. In light of the Spirit’s conviction we are assembling a prayer team with whom we can share more regular prayer needs. Our goal is to enlist the prayers of at least 50 prayer partners who provide us their email addresses and promise to lift us up in specific prayer. If you want to be a member of Center Point’s Prayer Team please email Sam at Sam@CenterPointDenver.org. She’ll add your email address to our Prayer Team list and you’ll begin to receive regular emails highlighting our more immediate prayer needs. Please consider joining us as Prayer Team members.

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” – Ephesians 6:12

We ask for your prayers as we bring light into the darkness of the Denver Tech Center. Pray that God will use us to flavor the Tech Center with His life changing salt. Pray that we might be a city on a hill, shining a light for all to see.

Thank you for your continued support. Financially we are so close to our goal for 2010-2011 and we have already begun to raise funding for 2011-2012. We look forward to God’s continued provision as we anticipate additional needs in the upcoming year (equipment for worship, facilities costs, promotional costs, etc.). Thank you for partnering with us in this Gospel work.

We’d love to hear from you and pray for you in any way we can. Thanks and God bless.

Peace,

Sam, Nate, and Eli
