CATCH THE WAVE is a new vision for Meadows Christian Fellowship, born from our desire to obey the Lord’s direction for our church TODAY as we help people know, love and become like Jesus Christ.
 
Meadows is a small yet mighty church that faithfully preaches and applies the Gospel throughout our worship services, small groups and various ministries. Catch the Wave is a creative way to express a fresh commitment to join God’s movement of kingdom multiplication. God is at work here and we are catching God’s movement as He reveals who we should be in Christ and how we should impact the communities around us. 
 
 We are currently working on Step 1 of a 3 step process… GETTING IN SHAPE (Personal and Church Health).
 
 
CATCH THE WAVE – VISION
Experience new depths of purpose and satisfaction by joining God in His work. When we intentionally pursue healthy relationship with Him and with one another it prepares us to Catch the Wave He has planned for our future.
 
During our 21 Days of Prayer & Fasting, how are we Getting in Shape spiritually as individuals as well as a Fellowship? 
  • Regularly attending Sunday Morning Worship
  • Intentionally taking “next steps” through our KNOW LOVE BECOME Hour
  • Actively engaging in personal Bible reading and prayer
  • Genuinely connecting, serving and growing with others
    • God’s work in us is most clearly seen in how we love one another. As a Fellowship, we “get in shape” by working out our attitudes and actions that nurture healthy relationships by centering our lives on the grace and love of Christ and extending Christ’s grace and love to one another.
CATCH THE WAVE – CAPITAL CAMPAIGN
We are thankful for the generous hearts of our Fellowship as well as the Chicago Northwest Suburban Chinese Christian Church (CNSCCC) during our Catch the Wave capital campaign. Getting our heavily used facility ready for growth and kingdom multiplication is an important part of “getting in shape”.
 
While we fell short of our initial goal, we are praising God for the $545,466 dollars pledged over 3 years and continue to move forward. Please pray for wisdom and direction for our Elders, Staff and Catch the Wave Team as they petition God to be good stewards with the gifts He gave us. We will be putting together a new plan and are hopeful to present more details at the April 22nd business meeting.
