Hello, Newsletter family. I sincerely thank each and every one of you for being a part of our newsletter community. For those of you who are new, a warm welcome awaits you. In the month of July, we welcomed over 39 new newsletter subscribers, and I'm thrilled to see so many fresh faces joining our newsletter family. I want to express my gratitude for subscribing and extend a warm welcome to our support team.
Our newsletter is truly unique because you become a vital part of our support team by staying informed about the latest developments in the life of our church. We are rapidly approaching our February 4th launch date, when we will commence weekly services for our new faith community. This launch will also mark the beginning of various community activities within the church.
In this video segment of our newsletter update, I like to highlight some victories and milestones. One of the exciting events in July was not just gaining 39 new newsletter subscribers but also holding our leadership team meeting. During this meeting, we decided to introduce a brand-new program for pastors, church leaders, and churches. It's called our Navigating Digital Ministry Partnership Program. This program enables pastors and churches to support us with one-time or monthly donations and gain access to special events and sessions. They can also join a dedicated group for pastors and leaders, where we will share exclusive monthly newsletters and a weekly blog. This program aims to equip pastors, whether they are new to online ministry or experienced veterans, with tools and insights from our journey as an online digital ministry. Our goal is to help the global church make disciples of Jesus Christ and spread His love and hope. If you haven't already, please consider informing your pastor or church leader about this partnership program and direct them to our registration page. If they make a one-time donation, they will also receive one month of membership access to our community as a special promotion.
Whether you're a new member of our newsletter family or you've been with us for a while, I encourage you to take the next step and join our prayer team. While you currently receive monthly updates, joining our prayer team will provide you with more frequent updates about our progress as we draw closer to the February launch of United Community Church, which is only five months away.
If you haven't had the chance to attend one of our information events, I strongly recommend it. During these events, I share the journey that Tamika and our family have undertaken as we work towards establishing a new faith community. We'll also discuss why we aspire to create an accessible, diverse, and online digital community where everyone can experience the love of Jesus and connect.
Additionally, please consider signing up for one of our weekly Bible studies, which take place every Thursday from 11 to 12. These sessions will delve into the mission, vision, values, and beliefs of United Community Church, and we'll explore the Bible verses and principles that underpin our faith. Everyone is welcome to attend, especially those interested in becoming part of our launch team, committing to either 6, 12, or 18 months. Whether you're planning to contribute financially or become one of the first members of our church, these Bible studies are an excellent opportunity to learn more and take the next step.
Lastly, if you haven't scheduled a one-on-one meeting with me yet, I would love the opportunity to get to know you better. I've already had the privilege of meeting several of you, including members of our prayer team, to discuss our journey and the vision that Tamika and I hold as we approach the launch of our church. It's crucial to emphasize that your support is invaluable. Starting a community takes a community, and I'm deeply grateful for your role as newsletter subscribers, your engagement with our updates, and your willingness to share the opportunity for others to grow in their faith by subscribing to our newsletter and participating in our Bible studies.
Stay tuned for our August newsletter, which will be released shortly. Once again, thank you for all your support and everything you've done for us thus far. I pray that we are also a blessing to you on your faith journey, helping you draw closer to Jesus in your relationship with Him. Wishing everyone a blessed month, and I look forward to connecting with you one-on-one. You can follow the link to schedule some time for us to introduce ourselves or, if we already know each other, to further discuss the vision and journey that God has placed in our hearts.
