It's been a remarkable year. In 2023, we've seen people come to faith in Jesus, get baptized, and join our vision to develop disciples of Christ in relational environments. We've seen numerical growth in our Maryville and Knoxville locations. God faithfully provided our Knoxville location with a new home in the heart of Knoxville at Windsor Square. Our counseling ministry expanded to provide one-on-one counseling to those in need. We've also trained several mentors who counsel and serve the hurting throughout the week. God has blessed us to be able to give generously to local and global ministries that plant churches and minister to those in extreme poverty.
In 2022 we had the opportunity to share the love of God with countless people outside our church's walls through our various outreach initiatives. We connected more new people to small groups than ever before, and we continued to equip people for the mission of God in many different ways.
Reflecting on these moments and their impact on our community's lives and families is truly inspiring. As a church, we continue to be grateful for the blessings that come from God as a result of His faithfulness and our people's willingness to serve the Lord.
We're a church that's always looking forward, driven by a belief in the Great Commission that calls us to "go and make disciples." As we strive to fulfill God's vision for our church, we want to reflect on 2023 and celebrate some things that God has done through your ministry. The annual report highlights some of the vital work that our church has witnessed. God has been so good to FC, and I pray that God continues to shower us with His blessing.
