A LOOK AT OUR FUTURE POTENTIAL MINISTRY
When our church purchased 35 acres at the southwest corner of Marksheffel and Bradley Roads in 2009, the only activity in the area was colonies of prairie dogs. Since then, some growth has occurred in the area, including the developments at The Glen at Widefield and Lorsen Ranch.
But now activity in the area is about to “explode.” The Glen at Widefield and Lorsen Ranch continue to build homes - adding thousands of more homes in the area. Aspen View is constructing 650 homes at the southeast corner of Powers and Marksheffel. Last week, a new developer has proposed building 3,000 homes at the northeast corner of Powers and Marksheffel. Another developer plans to build 1,000 homes at the southwest corner of Marksheffel and Fountaine Boulevard. And, adjacent to our property, Challenger Homes plans eventually to build 2,500 homes. Combined, over 11,000 homes are going to be constructed within a 2-3 mile radius of our church campus.
Our great GOD “sees” the big picture! In 2009, we saw prairie dogs, but God “saw” literally thousands of people in need of the gospel. GOD is locating us strategically to reach these neighborhoods with the good news of the gospel
Be sure to remember Galatians 6:9: “And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap is we do not lose heart.” Yes, our relocation journey has been hard, long, and ofttimes frustrating. But GOD indeed has a plan. Let’s keep praying! Let’s keep following His plan!
