Church family, we are still in the midst of COVID-19 and The Church Without Walls is committed to helping our members stay safe and healthy. In celebration of our 33rd Pastoral and Church Anniversary, we now have The Church Without Walls Mask available for purchase.
We have a full week ahead at The Church Without Walls! We will begin our 32nd Church Anniversary Celebration tonight on our Queenston Campus with Guest Preacher, Terry K. Anderson leading up to our Volunteer Breakfast, Church Anniversary and First Fruits Sunday.
As you reflect on the message from last Sunday, “Don’t Alter What You Bring to the Altar”, we want to take some time this week for:
- PREPARATION – Fast and pray to prepare your heart and mind to hear how God wants you to give sacrificially for First Fruits Sunday.
- PROTECTION – Fast and pray for God to protect what He has entrusted to your care to make the presentation.
- PRESENTATION – Fast and pray that God would prepare your heart to make a sacred presentation on this High Holy Sunday.
God has been so good to all of us. Remember, “Not Equal in Giving, but Equal in Sacrifice”, and we thank you for your obedience.
Over the next 3 years, we will take a journey that will challenge us to imagine! The dictionary says imagination is “forming mental images or concepts of what is not actually present to the senses. “The Bible uses another term for that: Faith.
“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” (Hebrews 11:1)
The writer of Hebrews goes on to tell us that the earliest followers of God “obtained a good testimony” through faith (Hebrews 11:2). We’re also instructed that “without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that he exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.” (Hebrews 11:6)
By faith, we believe that God will reward those of us who diligently seek Him. As a body of believers, we want God to plant incredible imaginings in our minds for the role each of us will play to further His message through The Church Without Walls! We believe that God is able to do immeasurable more than our human minds can image.
So it is with this in mind that we begin “Our Journey” of imaging things not yet seen! Our Journey Capital Stewardship Campaign will be an experience of prayer, faith gratitude, sacrifice, vision and commitment.
“Our Journey” of prayer will lead us far past asking, deep into new paths of seeking God’s way for our lives. Along those paths we will discover doorways – places where choices and decision must be made. Do we have the courage and commitment to knock on those doors? And when those new doorways are opened, will we step into a new way of life?
Knocking on the doors that God would open to us may well lead us down paths that we never imagined! We do not know what God has in store for . us when we begin such a journey, but one thing is certain – “Our Journey” of prayer will change our lives. After all, changing us has always been the real power of prayer.

Dear Church Family,
I am grateful that we are entering our new capital stewardship campaign – “Our Journey”. With the success of this capital stewardship campaign, our ministries will grow, our congregation and the community will be blessed, and God will be glorified.
Our Campaign’s prevailing theme is “Not Equal in Giving, But Equal in Sacrifice.” This theme challenges us to do the extraordinary, to give “over and above” sacrificially for the next three years. The theme reminds us that we can all have an equal part in the Lord’s work.
Our Journey provides all of us the opportunity to know in a fresh way the blessings which come through giving. Jesus said, “Give, and it shall be given unto you: good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over … ” (Luke 6:38)
I earnestly believe that we, the people of The Church Without Walls, are ready for the great challenge which this capital stewardship campaign offers. Let us each enter into this great effort prayerfully and enthusiastically.
