Happy New Year!
As the Bannockburn family begins a new year, I pray that you are excited and expectant in all that God can and will do through us. The truth is that God IS at work in us to will and to do according to HIs good pleasure (Phil. 2:13). We know God is going to show up for work this year… I hope you are excited and expecting great things as you and we join Him in that work.
As we continue to move forward as ONE CHURCH meeting in MULTIPLE LOCATIONS, God has already gone before us in so many ways and people are being reached and reactivated in their passion for following Jesus Christ. The Bannockburn family is growing in South Austin and in Dripping Springs, and this year we will seek the Lord’s direction in where our next location will be be planted. Each current and future location of Bannockburn is charged with wholeheartedly finding ways to guide generations to become passionate followers of Jesus Christ, one home at a time.
Each Bannockburn member has a God-ordained place of being and serving. For you to be fulfilled, for us to be successful, and for the lost to be reached… each of us must be willing to embrace our place. Whatever site God leads you to be at, be there will all your heart and embrace your place. Embrace your place on the map… embrace your place of minstry and service… lead your home to do the same.
Multi-site things to be aware of and praying about…
- Dripping Springs Office- Bannockburn now has a place to meet for ministry, Bible study, and other gatherings in Dripping Springs. Our office location is at 1326 US 290, Suite B (across from the Valero gas station, between the Middle School and High School). Pray that God will show us ways we can use this location to build a 24/7 presence in the city.
- Baptism #2 at BBC-DS- On January 20, the DS site will have their second baptism opportunity and we already have at least 5 people who are planning to be baptized. Pray for these folks as they invite their unchurched family and friends to come to the baptism. Pray that their testimony of belief and faith in Christ will impact those who see it.
- New Member Class- Our second opportunity for folks to go through the new member class and join the Bannockburn family in DS will be on January 27, at 9:30am. God continues to lead new people to the DS site, so pray that they will translate their coming to a commitment of membership.
