Worshiping a God who always provides
This past Friday we had a night of worship and prayer at Blue Sky Church and had an amazing time together! Part of the fun of being a worship leader at Blue Sky is that people really love Jesus, and the mission he has put us on! Over the past few years, we as a church have felt the need for a facility that can accommodate the families, young professionals, and the students that make up the greater Seattle area. The city of Bellevue, where Blue Sky Church is located, is not a cheap place to live, better yet to plant a church. The building we are in now is an old warehouse in the Bel-red Corridor. As we continue to grow, our need becomes more apparent weekly for a facility where people can come, hear about Jesus and learn what it means to follow Him.
This worship night was not a night of tears or heavy hearts, but a night of celebration, because we have a God who provides for all of our needs! Our need was $6 Million and through the sacrifice and giving of people in the church we now have $6.1 million and are in the beginning stages of rebuilding and refurbishing this facility.
We moved from Vine Church in Carbondale, Illinois with a hope and a dream that God would use us in planting His church in the Greater Seattle area. The years to come for Blue Sky are years of hope and excitement. We are a church that hopes to train many leaders and plant many churches. So while we started out the night of worship and prayer with thanking God for how He has provided, we ended with asking God to continue to use us as a church. The hope that is in our hearts causes us to ache for more people to know Him and more churches to be planted. The Mission he has us on seems unattainable, and sometimes downright impossible,
almost as impossible as buying and refurbishing a facility in Bellevue Wa :)

more than watchmen for the morning, more than watchmen for the morning. (Psalm 130:5-6, ESV)
