Letter to West Family regarding Del Prado location launch
Posted: Sep 4, 2012 in Uncategorized | No Comments |



Dear West Family,

I hope you had an absolutely wonderful Labor Day weekend with your family and friends.  We truly live in the most blessed country in the world.  These truly are exciting days and our church is getting ready to make a move that we believe will position us to reach more people in Cape Coral which is what it’s all about!

If you missed church this past weekend, I highly recommend logging on to our website (www.firstassemblywest.com) and listening.  The message was called, “When Life Throws a Curveball.”  We discussed what to do when things in life don’t go according to plan.  The “plan” for us as a church was for us to move in to our new facility on Del Prado this weekend (September 8-9.)  Unfortunately, we have not yet passed our fire inspection without which we cannot get our C/O.  We are feverishly working with the city to help remedy this situation.  We hope and pray these issues get resolved quickly as our lease at our current location on Pine Island Road will have expired after this coming weekend.

Our current plan is as follows.  We will be having church this coming weekend (September 8-9) at our current Pine Island location with service times the same as they have been which are Saturday night at 6:30 and Sunday Morning at 9:30 and 11:00.  After our 11:00 am service is over, we are in need of several people willing to help move the remainder of our supplies out of our current facility into the new one so that a different church can move into the Pine Island Rd. location.

Pending approval from the city, which we believe we will have, our first service at the new building will be September 15-16.  This will be a dedication service for us at West to celebrate what God has done with the opening of our building as well as praying for great things as we “Launch.”  If our building is not ready by the 15-16, we will be having services outside in a tent at the new property.  Our “Grand Opening” weekend will be September 22-23.  This is the weekend we will be inviting as many people in our communities to as possible.  As we go through this process over the course of the next few weeks, there are 3 things you can help us with.

  1. Pray that we have favor with our city and that our remaining inspections would go smoothly
  2. Be willing and ready to volunteer to help us get ready for our services once we receive our C/O as we will likely not have much time to get ready for our weekend service after receiving it
  3. Invite as many people to our opening weekend launch as you possibly can!

Thank you SO MUCH for your flexibility and understanding.  You are the absolute best in the world.  I know the reason we are experiencing a slight delay is because the enemy is trying to do anything he can to get us to lose focus because of how many people are going to find Christ as a result of this launch.  We will keep you updated as we know more.  Stay tuned to our church FB page as well as my blog www.withexpectancy.com for more updates.

If you have any questions or we can help in any way, please feel free to call the church at 239.458.0813 or email me at corey@firstassemblywest.com

With Expectancy!

Pastor Corey
