Christ Alone Goes it Alone! (And that’s a good thing!)

Pr. Brian Doebler writes:

“On Sunday, our [Immanuel Lutheran Church, North Richland Hills] Voters voted to send Christ Alone off as their own mission, no longer under the auspices of Immanuel.  Pastor Seager is now called by that group at Christ Alone to be their pastor.  It is amazing that God has so quickly brought us to this point.  Of course, there are many challenges ahead for Christ Alone and nothing is certain beyond the promises of God to be with them and bless them, but this new arrangement gives the core group a better, direct handle on their ministry, their plans and especially the finances as they try to get up on their feet.  This will not change the support and encouragement from Immanuel and its staff towards the gospel work at Christ Alone.

“To celebrate God’s grace and blessing in bringing Christ Alone to this point, we are planning a special worship service on Sunday, September 12th at 10:30am.  Immanuel is moving its normal 2nd service over to join with Christ Alone at their facilities on that day.  (We’ll still have our 8am service that day).  We will have a catered meal afterward as well.

“I know that this won’t work for many, especially pastors, but please pray for us and feel free to include the following blurb in your bulletin (change it as is appropriate or necessary).

“There is a Special Service of Thanksgiving at Christ Alone on Sunday, September 12th at 10:30am.  This service celebrates God’s grace and blessing as they go out on their own as a mission congregation.  The Voters at Immanuel voted for this new arrangement with joy and thanksgiving to God on August 22nd.  The members at Immanuel Lutheran will be gathering with their fellow Christians at Christ Alone on this morning, having their normal worship service at that hour over at Christ Alone as well in one joint service with Holy Communion.  You are welcome to join us as well in this thanksgiving to God.  We will have a special catered meal following the service for fellowship.  Pre-service fellowship begins at 9:45am with coffee and donuts.  Christ Alone is currently meeting at Timber Creek High School: 12350 Timberland Boulevard, Keller, TX 76248.  Their website is www.HeDidItAll.org.”
