Do you ever remember wondering what you would look like when you grew up? Wondering what your life would be like. How many kids you would have. What job you would do. Or how you might affect the world or those around you. As you grew, did it turn out the way you thought it would? Did your expectations change as you did?

The Church continues to grow. More people are coming to know Christ. As I look at the Church, God fills me with encouragement because of all the different people with various gifts and backgrounds.

Our call is to go into the world and make disciples. Since we all know so many different people with various backgrounds, the Church will look different in years to come. But that is what makes the Church so beautiful!
