February Letter from the Director – SYNC Steps it up with expanded visions and plans for 2017.

Leaders from churches and ministries across the Reno area gathered in my home Saturday for a potluck and the 2017 SYNC “Visioning Meeting.” The purpose was to clarify our mission statement and seek God’s direction forward. Frankly, I was overwhelmed with the creative ideas and desire to engage exhibited by all present! We have been asking God to raise up leaders and give clear direction. Boy did He answer with a resounding, “Yes”!!!

We now have an Event Team working on not one, but THREE possible upcoming events — one in April, one in July, and one next spring!

  1. We are planning to offer the Priscilla Schirer Simulcast and are presently praying for a church to provide the venue.
  2. Our Encouragers Group is looking into supporting a summer Community Picnic to benefit Life Changing Community Outreach in downtown Reno.
  3. We are working on a possible women’s retreat early in 2018.

Teams are forming for each of these events. Join as God calls—seeking your niche!  In addition to Events, we have new volunteers on other teams. SYNC is a big vision and we trust God that the help will continue to come. We especially need volunteers in promotions and technology.

The other piece of this ministry is our ongoing community groups. There were reports from several at the “Visioning Meeting.” All God is doing through these groups is incredibly amazing. Please look at the drop-down menu under “SYNC Group Index” on this website to see what is happening in each. As we seek to unite women and share hope, we continue on this journey forward in the name of our Lord.
Mark your calendar for Feb 24th at The River Christian Church for the All City Acts4 Praise and Prayer Night.  SYNC will have a table and new SYNC postcards to hand out. Stay tuned to this website for our constantly updating calendar of events throughout Reno for news of upcoming events as well as on-going groups.

Do you know of upcoming events that should be on our webpage and calendar?
E-mail the information to SYNC@Syncreno.org, and put “ATTN JOAN” on the subject line.

God has not promised a spotlight to show us the future; however, he has promised his word will be a lamp unto our feet. So, step by step as we pray and remain in faith, we trust he will provide all we need to accomplish his purposes.
“How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called Children of God!!!”
