Revive Recap January 24'

A message from Pastor Derik

Dear Valued Partner

This past year came and went faster than I care to admit! However, even though it felt fast we as a church were able to do so much in the previous 365 days! This includes the Samaritan's Purse Outreach, free clothing giveaway, Revive Kids Bible buddy project, multiple local outreaches, Mother’s Day Brunch, Backpack Giveaway, Fall Festival, Vacation Bible School, Christmas Adopt-a-child and so much more! I honestly didn’t realize everything we had done until our Communications Director, Miranda, created a short video showing everything! With all of this, our church has grown tremendously, and we couldn’t be more thankful to God and the members of this church that serve and give so faithfully!! It is really a miracle the last couple of years to see this church that was homeless right before a pandemic with barely one hundred people and see God open a door for a beautiful building and fill it over and over again! This is the story of a faithful God that is trusted by faithful people! Also this year my brother Shawn is coming on staff full time to help facilitate this growth as Associate and Youth Pastor!! Cassie and I just wanted to say thank you! Thank you to the staff, leaders, partners, members and beyond! We couldn’t do this without you and God’s grace!


This coming year is going to look a little different!! After many years of working harder and harder, the Lord is calling us into something that is going to be tough. The word for 2024 is going to change our calendar, impact our walk with God and help us reposition for the greatest outpouring God has ever given us!!


2024 is going to be the year of


Our main focus is to as it says in Exodus to...

“Remember the Sabbath, to Keep it Holy!”

Exodus 20:8-11 NLT

8 “Remember to observe the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. 9 You have six days each week for your ordinary work, 10 but the seventh day is a Sabbath day of rest dedicated to the Lord your God. On that day no one in your household may do any work. This includes you, your sons and daughters, your male and female servants, your livestock, and any foreigners living among you. 11 For in six days the Lord made the heavens, the earth, the sea, and everything in them; but on the seventh day he rested. That is why the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and set it apart as holy.


This year we are dropping everything except Sunday Morning Worship Experiences and ReGroups — to have a year of Sabbath so we can Reset our hearts to grow better and deeper for the following four things:

Deeper in our relationship with God

Deeper in our relationship with others

Deeper in our relationship with the church

Deeper leads to double

I don’t have enough space in this Newsletter to explain everything, so I encourage you to check out Facebook and Youtube for all the messages and join us on this Year of Reset!

God Bless,

Derik Kerber

The ”Finish Line”

To say that Revive Church had a remarkable and amazing year would be a gross understatement!

For our Christmas Eve service alone, we had 10 new families and close to 300 attendees in person and over 25 attendees online. With God’s grace, we are certain this surge in growth will continue into the new year 2024.

As you can see, the numbers below prove this was quite a spectacular year!!

The best is yet to come!
