Dear Friends and Family (Ohana):
Last Friday, and Saturday NHLV hosted about 100 Pastors and Leaders (i.e. Arizona, Utah, Mesquite, Pahrump, Blue Diamond etc.) who attended the Pacific Southwest District “Momentum18 Fall Conference”! District Supervisor,Fernando Castillo equipped and empowered attendees on leadership momentum, mending our “sails”, and church planting!
All this could not have taken place if not for NHLV Doing Church As A Family (D.C.A.F)! Therefore, I want to shout a gigantic THANK YOU & MAHALO to NHLV’s 135 volunteers, and leaders who honored and served our Pacific Southwest District (PSD) Pastors and Leaders with amazing excellence, and such genuine hearts! Some of our volunteers even used their vacation time at their jobs to serve at the conference! INCREDIBLE! You are THE BEST, and God’s great reward to you! Amen!
Also, a huge CONGRATULATIONS to PASTOR BAM who was ORDAINED by our Foursquare denomination last Friday night at Fall Conference. Pastor Bam is now fully loaded, and at the next level of his call to ministry. Paahraise God!
WEDNESDAY NIGHT SERVICE this week, AUSTIN TIALAVEA preaches a powerful message titled “ADVANCE YOUR MOVE”! You won’t want to miss this! Then onSUNDAY, PASTOR BAM equips and empowers all of us to press into the wisdom of the ages with his message titled “YOUR DIVINE MENTOR”. This will be Pastor Bam’s first message as an “ordained” Pastor, so don’t miss it!
RESTROOM EXPANSION: Why are we expanding our restrooms? Answer: 1) We want to accommodate the needs of our growing church, and provide quicker access; 2) We need to comply with City “Occupancy Code” related to our growth; 3) We want our “throne room” to reflect God’s aesthetic excellence as best we can.
Pastor Bam and I met with our Property Manager, and their General Contractor last week to explore options to complete this project. They’ll be getting back to us in a couple of weeks with their assessment. Meanwhile, let’s continue to financially give towards the CONTRUCTION PHASE! Yes, our initial “under-estimated” goal to raise $50,000 needs to increasedue to how the positive economic growth is affecting the construction industry. Nonetheless, our NHLV family (Ohana), partners and friends serve a BIG GOD…and, together WE CAN get this done! As of this writing, wereceived $10,500!
This project may be delayed, but not denied! Please make checks payable to: NEW HOPE LAS VEGAS. On the memo line write: “ADVANCE”; OR you can give through our APP (scroll to “ADVANCE”). Thank YOU for your generous contribution!
Lastly, don’t forget to come and enjoy our “HOLY-WEEN” night for your children on Wednesday, October 31! Also, our last “Child Dedication” for the year is happening on Sunday, November 4th! Sign-up today at our Connections Counter or through our Website!
