January at Access has quite possibly been my favorite month in the history of our church… and I’ve LOVED a lot of months at Access!
Here’s a quick highlight reel of some of my favorite things:
- We started the new year on January 6 with a message called Circles Completed. Last January, we did a series called Circles, based on a book by Mark Batterson called The Circle Maker. In that series, we talked about praying big, bold, audacious prayers. on January 6, I asked the question, what do you do when God answers your prayers. He just answered a HUGE one of ours – enabling us to start a second location of our church!
- On January 13, we celebrated the fulfillment of many months of prayer, work, and sacrifice. We officially be came one church in two locations! We had 173 people show up at our Brandon Campus Grand Opening service, and that day, between our two locations, we saw a couple dozen people put their faith in Jesus Christ!
- I’ve LOVED the Fresh Air series we’re in. We’ve been teaching the same messages in Lakeland and Brandon!
- I can’t wait to share some of the stories that have already happened at our Brandon campus this Sunday when I’m in Lakeland!
Lots of exciting things are coming! Here are a few things you need to know:
- We wrap up 21 Days of Prayer this weekend. I hope you’ll join us at our Access Offices (1037 S. Florida Ave. Suite 130 • Lakeland, FL 33803) from 9-10 AM to pray with us!
