Looking Back at Freedom Life! BELIEVE THAT YOU CAN, 2010!

Our church is all about loving God, loving people & loving life! This year was an incredible year as we set our faith & goals high to impact our church family and the surrounding community. Our theme was "Believe That You Can," based on the scripture found in Phillipians 4:13, that says, "I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength."

Lost People Matter To God So They Matter To Us-  This year we have witnessed over 300 people make decisions to follow Jesus & we have baptized 70 in obedience to Christ!  We have supported 17 different missions organizations at both home & abroad with over $52,000.  We have assisted in planting churches in Cuba (4), India (1), Dominican Republic (1), Tulsa, Ok (1) & we are currently raising funds for Bridge Community in Downingtown, Pa.  This is the heart beat of our church.

Investing Into The Next Generation-  We have, on average, over 300 students and children involved in our ministry programs.  We are planting seeds into the next generation because they are the engine of our church.

Fellowship Through Small Groups-  As a church this past year, we have hosted more than 25 different ministries and small groups, involving hundreds of people! We introduced Life Training Classes (“Fresh Start With God” and Classes 101-401) in 2010, with 115 participants and 62 individuals committed to Freedom Life through membership. 

Encouragement Through Relevant Biblical Ministry-  A few statistics about our growth:  Our average weekend attendance is 600-700;  April was our biggest month with an average of 734 people attending.  Our highest attended service was Mafia Church, with 1,050 people here. The MidWeek attendance averages over 300. And, we welcomed hundreds of guests and launched into three services to accommodate our growth this past year.

God is doing awesome things in the life of our church & the best is yet to come!
