We have gone from about 50 pioneers, representing churches all over Lexington, meeting in a storefront in Woodhill, to 1300 members in a beautiful facility with a large sanctuary, fellowship hall, children's wing and Life Center. We've gone from one worship service to now six services, serving a wide diversity of persons from all around the world. We have outstanding ministries for children and youth. We have a food pantry that is open twice a day Monday through Friday and serves hundreds of people every week. We are major supporters of Nathaniel Mission and other continued on next page "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.
