For you were straying like sheep, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.
1 Peter 2:25

Dear family and friends,

May is here.
Teacher Appreciation Week, Mother’s Day, Graduations, and Memorial Day move us right into the summer time.

Evidences of God’s grace

  • Thankful to Jesus for people coming to Pre-launch gatherings: 20 in attendance (April 21st)
  • Thank you to many of you who have spent time to do some assessment in April.
  • Thanks to Spanish River Church for Gospel Bootcamp, Church Planter’s Retreat, and considering the financial partnership.

Expectations of God’s work

  • May is for Alignment.  We want to align ourselves for the maximum impact as the public launch of Center Church will be in about 120 days.
  • We are launching two new community groups: Irvine (May 9, Thursdays) and Tustin (May 7, Tuesdays).
  • We want to implement two requirements for success as we transition from launch group to launch team:
    Smart and Healthy (courtesy of The Advantage by Patrick Lencioni).

    My prayers consist of asking God:

    • To relentless pursue gospel clarity in preaching, teaching, discipleship, community and on mission.
    • To align and apply SMART goals to Strategy, Marketing, Finance, and Technology.
    • To activate and achieve HEALTHY growth through Minimal Politics, Minimal Confusion, High Morale, High Productivity, and Low Turnover

Pastor Samuel
