From the Pastor:
The test of the health of an organism is in its ability to grow and reproduce. A healthy plant for instance is one that is growing; putting forth new roots and leaves and fruit. When growth declines or stops, it is a certain sign of disease or weakness. What is true for organisms is true for churches as well. Healthy churches are growing churches.
Church growth expert, George Barna found a foundational ministry present in rapidly growing churches in America – Prayer. He wrote: "The call to prayer [in these churches] was the battle cry of the congregation: it rallied the troops. These people understood the power of prayer. They actively and consistently included prayer in their services, in their events, their meetings and their personal ministries."
God releases His power into our lives when we turn to Him in prayer. And when God's power is present, He adds to the health of our church and our lives. With health comes growth.
C. Peter Wagner, an authority on church growth, has this to say, "The more deeply I dig beneath the surface of the church growth principles, the more thoroughly convinced I become that the real battle is a spiritual battle and that our principal weapon is prayer."
Church growth is not always comfortable however. New faces, new ideas, strains on the facility and increased demands on the staff, all add to feelings of anxiety for some people. If however we keep in mind that Trinity United Methodist Church exists to reach out into the world and make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world, we can see our growth as a beautiful sign of God's abiding presence.
Pay attention for opportunities to increase your personal prayer life and our corporate prayer life.
"And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord's people." (Ephesians 6:18)
