CONNECT WITH US
We are grateful to maintain our ability to gather together. In order for this to be possible, each member of our church family must do their part by being considerate of the health and safety of themselves and others. This means that if you show symptoms of any sickness or are exposed to someone with a confirmed case of COVID-19, we ask you to worship with us online until it’s safe to return to an in-person gathering.

Year End Giving Update:
Last month we had a December giving goal of $1,250,000. During the month of December, you gave more money than we have ever received…ever…in the history of our church and it is worth celebrating! To hit a record number while the calendar still said 2020 in such unprecedented times of uncertainty is a big deal. You gave $1,060,000. Thank you for your generosity! Just because we were short of our goal, that does not mean we are in debt or are running a deficit. We praise God for His faithfulness to us, and as you continue to give you show yourselves faithful to His kingdom work as well. Thank you for partnering with us.

Tim and Rebecca Hawkins – Germany
We’re in the middle of our home assignment and are planning to return to our work in Germany in May. Because of the current situation we’ve had to cancel our plans for an east coast trip to visit friends and supporters and are now planning to stay in Pensacola, Florida until the end of February and then return to Michigan. Our major goals for our home assignment time have been to raise the additional support we need to return to the field, spend time with our adult kids and family, and get rested and prepared for our new and challenging position with Cadence. We will be Europe Field Leaders, overseeing Cadence ministries in Germany, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, and the UK. In spite of the obstacles created by Covid, support raising has been encouraging. We were able to travel to St Louis and spend Christmas with 3 of our 4 kids and our grandson and plan to see all 4 again before we leave. When you’re living out of a suitcase it can be difficult to get a lot of necessary work done, but having a place in Florida has given us a chance to settle in and catch up on a lot of things. After a pretty intense November work wise, we have been able to settle into a more balanced life that has given us a time to rest and make up for 21 English winters. Our plans are to spend March in Michigan and then begin to work our way back to the west coast visiting and working to raise support along the way.
