T

hroughout the Old Testament, we can see that God continually reminds his people of what he has done in the past. He doesn’t necessarily enjoy reminiscing about the “good old days”, rather, He reminds us of past grace to encourage us to trust him for what he plans in the future. Past grace should always point toward future grace. This annual report serves several purposes: 1. There should be an element of celebration. God has been faithful; look at what he’s done! 2. There’s a measure of accountability from your leadership and fellow church members. 3. There is a challenge for us to remain faithful. Our church is Jesus ruled, elder led, and congregationally accountable. This flow guides everything we do as a church, including our finances. Each year in late fall, the church leadership collaborates across ministries to align ministry and strategic needs for the coming year with the resources expected to be available based on the generosity of the church. That collaboration yields a proposed cash operating budget that is refined and approved each December. May this report help you reflect on God’s faithfulness to us in 2016 and cause you to pray that he will do more than we could ever ask or imagine in the future. Pastor Dan Williams Lead Pastor

“Know therefore that the Lord your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations.” Deuteronomy 7:9

In order for all of that (and more) to happen effectively, we rely on the gifts and abilities of pastors, staff, deacon trustees, ministry leaders and ministry team leaders. My position allows me to oversee music, operations, facilities, support staff, and gives me the opportunity to lead and love our faith family in a variety of ways.

“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another.”

Jesus is the one who builds His church, and I remain utterly humbled that He’s invited me into His work.

Hebrews 10:23-25

he vision of North Central Church is to see gospel transformation in every heart, home, and neighborhood. The best way we know how to accomplish that vision is by creating environments that equip all people to treasure Jesus, live in community and embody a missionary lifestyle. We believe that happens most effectively when we begin to recognize that the church is not a building, but a people! A life of worship means carrying our missionary identity everywhere we go. It means a life shared with neighbors, co-workers, and friends. It means a life lived in gospel-freedom outside the brick and mortar of the building. So what does that mean for the facility God has entrusted into our care? And what does that mean for our weekly gatherings? Our weekly gatherings remain the primary environment where we celebrate, encourage, and edify one another collectively as a family. biblically faithful preaching and teaching grounds us in God’s word corporate singing helps us remember what God has accomplished and gives us an opportunity to respond to His grace kids environments point the next generation to Jesus as the hero of God’s story, come to rescue us
