Worthless Penny, Priceless Worship

A story from an African Church--article by Nik Ripken


"Ten thousand dollars was a generous gift from believers in America. Yet a worthless, British halfpenny taught me about sacrifice and giving all to Jesus, trusting him for the days to come."


Usually around the New Year, people set goals, make resolutions, start a work out plan and hope for a healthier year. This year Gospel Village wants to encourage you to aim for more than New Years Resolutions in 2017. We want 2017 to be more than a year of resolutions and unmet goals--we want to invite you to give this year to Jesus--trusting Him for the days to come.

"I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers." 
Ephesians 1:16

Gospel Village is so thankful for all the men and women who pour their lives into students and families across our city. It takes a Village, so we're thankful to have our mentors who selflessly give their time and families to make a difference.
