 The Starting Line…


Have you ever watched a track meet? I love the sprinting events. The runners waltz, mosey, run, jump and jiggle up to the starting blocks, place their feet against the blocks, delicately position their fingers just behind the starting line, pump their legs one more time, get settled in, take a deep breath, listen for the starting gun and then… BOOM! They are off to the races! And they run and run and run until they cross the finish line.


It’s starting to feel that way around MVPC as the month of August is upon us. The starting blocks of the new school calendar year is right around the corner and we have about six weeks before the starting gun goes off to start our sprint race which will span September through May.


In this race, we will encounter numerous transformational opportunities:
         1.  I will be preaching through the Gospel of John starting in September and concluding in May.
  1. The Alpha Course program will be offered in September, concluding in December. 
  2. Financial Peace University will be offered as a course to help us manage our God given finances and resources rather than allowing those resources to manage us. 
  3. We are partnering with our sister church Good Shepherd Presbyterian Church which is also the First Thai-Laotian Church of Las Vegas, as they embark on securing their property and begin their journey as a church on their own piece of real estate.
  4. We are reorganizing our Leadership Teams and structures to better meet the growing needs of our people and church.
  5. We will also be participating in the ministries we normally participate in year after year.


It’s time to get settled into the starting blocks! But, before we get too comfortable, let me ask this…

“What are we doing right now to train and prepare for the race ahead?”


Let me invite you to begin praying about what God has in store for you this Fall. I don’t want you to miss out on the greatest race of your life!


Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own.

13 Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, 14I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

(Philippians 3: 12-14)  

See you out on the racetrack!
Grace and peace,

Pastor David!
