Greetings my friends and Happy New Year! 2015 was a great year for True Vine Church. We have seen several people added to the Kingdom of God. 2015 was also a year where we experienced both trial and heartache. Friends and family members; left us here on Earth to be with our Heavenly Father. There is something about the lessons of time and experience in life that cannot avoid, but help us to become stronger in the Lord.
Looking back at the year in review we have seen the hand of God has been moving in OUR lives. God has kept us! God has proven to be OUR constant Provider for our church’s needs so that we have never gone without. God has also blessed us with several new endeavors. We started a new ministry for our Women Of the Word, working with Cross Point Ministry. This is a ministry that works with women that were formerly incarcerated. The Women of True Vine are helping other women to understand the “significance in the Lord.” Our Nehemiah Leadership Foundation is doing well and we will be seeking out “grant money” to help our efforts assist the “formerly incarcerated transition back to their communities.
The theme for 2016 is, “Dream Without Fear and Love Without Limits.” Our theme Scripture is Isaiah 52:4, “Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes.” We are looking for dreams to be birthed and God’s plans for the people of God to be established. We are expecting for every Disciple at True Vine to do more for the glory of Christ than they did last year. We are asking all Disciples to seek God for the answer to the question of “How we can be more effective for Christ in serving His people?” 2016 is going to be a year of great expectation and fulfilment!
Happy New Year,
Overseer Trevor D. Alexander+
