As we get ready to make this dramatic shift into our first permanent facility, there is much we can learn from this book of the Bible. Our next message series, starting February 14, will be based on this book. So, if you are not reading your Bible regularly now, why not pick up Nehemiah and read it with me. I think God will speak to you through it, like He is speaking to me.

Preparing to Move
As we prepare to move into our new building some time in March (probably early March - and we will publish an official date soon), I am personally reading the book of Nehemiah. Nehemiah is an incredible servant-leader who, working together with his people, accomplished what many saw as impossible - the rebuilding of the wall around Jerusalem. Nehemiah had enemies who did not want the project to succeed and they worked diligently to turn public sentiment against him. But there were specific things that the people of God did before, during, and after the project to ensure it's success.
