A Hearty Hello to The CREST Church
Family, Friends and Supporters:
We bring you greetings from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. One of my favorite songs has the words, "My good days out weigh my bad days so I won't complain." Nineteen wonderful years have gone by and what a ride it has been. The Lord has blessed, is blessing and will bless this church. The half has not been told. In the Spirit and the physical realm, we are advancing the Kingdom for God in the DFW area and around the world.
From the beginning and even until now Jesus has given us a multicultural, Bible teaching, loving environment that is becoming known in and out of this community. My sincere thanks to you, church family, and other supporters. It is because of you that this ministry honors God by serving the community. This would not have been possible without you. Let me encourage you to keep the faith, continue serving, give positive witness and above all, love one another.
To God be the glory for the great things He has done. Please join me in this eighteenth year anniversary of The CREST Church (formerly Christ Memorial Community Church), a family of believers meeting the needs of the least, the last and the lost at the love of Christ.
In His Service,
Senior Pastor Stephen Drake
Greetings from our Sr.Pastor
Words from the First Lady
To The CREST Family,
It seems that we have just celebrated 19 years and now here we are looking at 20 years already. Since that time God has blessed us so much. I would like to personally thank all of you who tirelessly lend a hand in the upkeep and decoration of the church. Our goal at The CREST Church is to groom disciples to go out and be a witness for the Kingdom of heaven. Thank you to all the Sunday school teachers, mid week Bible teachers and all others who allow the Lord to use you to make this goal a reality. You are the real blessings of this church.
To the ladies of this church, you have been such a joy to me. You have supported me thru Christmas programs, women's teas, Bible fellowship, book studies, and nursing home and homeless shelter visitations. Thank you for saying yes with such busy schedules. To the choir, you are an amazing, talented group of people. Thank you for putting in such long hours. I have watched God bless your sound and ability over and over. Thank you for allowing the Lord to use you in this place. I also want to thank our praise dancers and their leader for saying yes to the many rehearsals and long hours. The time you give the Lord is very valuable to Him and it shows in the dance. God has increased your talents and I am grateful to be able to work with such amazing young ladies.
I praise God that he has given me the talent to teach and minister in music. But that talent would mean nothing if it were not for each of you that come each week to bless God corporately. It is truly an honor serving all of you. I pray the Lord will give us many, many more years to continue to build disciples and groom the next leaders of his Kingdom.
Many blessings to you thru God our Savior Jesus Christ,
First Lady Tanya Drake
