We're Forming A Team!

We had the privilege to meet this week with more than a dozen friends who share our passions and are interested in being involved in our core team.  We enjoyed worshiping together through music, prayer, encouragement, and the sharing of the vision God has given us for The Source.

We are having another meeting tomorrow night, Saturday the 20th at 6:30pm.  This is for anyone who is interested in hearing more about The Source and our vision, character, and passions.  We'll share our Statement of Faith and Constitution. (If you attended Wednesday's meeting, the information given will be the same.  You're always welcome to come again for the fellowship!)  

While we would love to have you join our team, we simply want to share our passion and the story of how The Source has developed so far in this journey and what some of our next steps will be.  Don't feel like you can only come if you are ready to commit!.  We also desire your feedback and ideas.  We will be praying for you as you seek God's direction for your involvement.

If you are interested in attending, or have other questions/comments, please email us at for the location and gate code.  You can also call or text Megan at 480-201-9460.  Please leave a message if I don't pick up!
We hope to see you there!

His Glorious Riches

Philippians 4:19 "My God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus..."

As we have started this journey with The Source, we have had a variety of opportunities to trust that God will meet all our needs.  We keep saying to ourselves and to our children that God owns the "cattle on a thousand hills" (Psalm 50:10) and all the things we need to do His work.  The Source has already experienced God's provision in providing us with the vision, the leadership, and many people ready to worship and serve together.  This week he has also provided us with some material goods to further our vision to "provide a daily environment where ordinary people encounter an extraordinary God".

Our desire to meet people in the course of their everyday life has inspired the vision of The Source to operate as a daily coffee shop or cafe, both for the purpose of providing a space for Christians to meet and encourage one another daily, and as a non-threatening environment for non-Christians who wouldn't normally walk into a traditional church building to be encouraged and to encounter the love of God.  Cafe's need a lot of things in order to operate... things like THIS:

As we drove by a restaurant last week, we noticed their parking lot littered with booths about to be discarded.  We stopped in and asked to speak to the manager.  The booths were already spoken for (an OK thing since we want our furnishings to be more flexible) but their remodel left them with a bunch of dishes no longer being used.  The manager happily packaged them up for us AND directed us to another restaurant where her husband is a manager, who also contributed their leftovers.  We gave him a copy of our Core Team information packet and he said, "well, I'm happy to have a hand in spreading God's Word!"

The timing of this connection was perfect, as the second store was just about to have their bar counter top replaced.  Joseph and Eric went last Wednesday night and from 11pm-2am, in the rain, awaited, loaded, and transported 3 large sections of Corian countertop!

"...To our God and Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen"  Philippians 4:20 

Continue praying with us for response to contacts we have made with other remodeling restaurants and businesses who may also be able to donate their used furnishings and other resources.

2. Raising funds for start-up expenses.
3. Provision of the right location and other resources for our ministry center.
