The Building Project
To my cherished Christ Center Family,
Decades ago a small group of committed people had a VISION of bringing Christ to Cashmere and the greater Wenatchee Valley. They had a dream to share with people from every generation the hope and love found in Jesus. What started with a few people in a small building has literally seen thousands of people walk through our doors where they have learned to Believe, Belong, Become and Reach Beyond, taking that same message across the country and around the globe. The dream of impacting communities in the name of Jesus continues to be realized. That small group of people, joined by many like them through the years, paid private prices to see their vision become reality. YOU and I are the answers to their prayers. We are also the beneficiaries of the sacrifices of time, talent and treasure that gave us a place to meet for over 60 years and a multi-generational identity in the community.
Og Mandino said “I will not allow yesterday's success to lull me into today's complacency, for this is the great foundation of failure.” As a family, let us have the wisdom and foresight to look another 20, 50, 100 years down the road and ask, “What could be?” We remain unified, committed and steady in our pursuit of a new “HOME” for our Church Family and we rejoice in that. Now, I believe, is the time for an UP-Rising!
What is an UP-Rising? It literally means to stand up — usually to advance. It’s a revolution; and no one who was comfortable ever started a revolution. We must allow the Holy Spirit to stir our hearts for the future. UP-Rising also has a duel meaning. It is time to RAISE UP the walls and roof of our new church home. This fall will be the time for some heavy lifting and it is my prayer that we can all have some “skin in the game”.
Forever United in the Journey,
Pastor Steve Haney
