“We all want the best for our kids. What if I told you there was a well researched program that could change your kids life. It can increase the average life-expectancy of your children by 8 years. Reduce the child's use and risk of alcohol, drugs and tobacco. It can dramatically lower the risk of suicide and help rebound from depression 70% faster. It will reduce the risk for committing a crime. Provide them with a life-long moral compass and provide children with a caring extended family. Interested? Well, according to Barna Research Group the program is called "Active Church Participation". Many people think church is irrelevant and boring, but many churches are thriving and many lives are being impacted. Maybe it's time you got involved in a healthy Bible based church. And instead just being a spectator, maybe it's time to be a participator.” Matt Prater
Vision Sunday launched our Year of Growth for 2019 and the celebrations of inducting Mark Selke our Growth Youth Pastor and Stephen Scott our Growth Young Adults Pastor, and celebrating the many successes and services of MarionLIFE from Leighton Boyd and from Sonya regarding our Growth for Kids@Marion and Worship.Psalm 100 says:
“Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
Worship the Lord with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs.
Know that the Lord is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his[[a](https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalm+100&version=NIV#fen-NIV-15512a)];
we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations.” (NIV)
We finished up after the 10am service with a wonderful lunch after the service together.
