Syracuse Good News 04.20.14


Courtney Parlour: “With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And God’s grace was so powerfully at work in them all…” (Acts 4:33) We have seen God’s grace powerfully at work here in the Syracuse Church! Today we had our largest service yet as 133 people gathered for an incredible church service full of musical performances, a creative play, a graceful dance, and the Word preached with conviction by my husband, Joel! We were personally encouraged as Joel’s parents, Roger & Kama, were visiting from Boston and were able to share powerfully for communion and contribution! The Parlour Sr.’s are heroes in the faith to many in the Syracuse Church as they were on the original church planting to Syracuse in 1993!

Courtney writes a song that the Syracuse Kids
Kingdom performs on Easter Sunday!

The highlight of the service today was the baptism of our new sister Delilah! She is an amazing single mom of three boys, one of which has autism. Delilah was first introduced to the church ten years ago at the age of 17, but unfortunately decided to plunge into the world. God later put a sister named Amy Ludwig in her life and she was reintroduced to God and the church. A couple of months ago, Delilah decided to move her wonderful family from Albany to Syracuse. This radical decision was so that she could be around the Kingdom to become a true disciple and to give her boys the opportunity to become disciples!

In the midst of finding a new home, a new job, and putting her boys in school, Delilah studied the Bible diligently! She truly has made every effort to enter the Kingdom!

Delilah makes the radical decision to move her family
to Syracuse in order to seek the Kingdom first!

We are with you heart and soul here in sunny, Central New York State!
