This Lent, we invite you to join Christ on his final earthly journey as we rediscover the very reason we remember and undertake this same pilgrimage year after year. Pick up your copy of the daily Lenten devotional For God So Loved, available from the church for only $6. Then join us for The Gathering, Sundays at 9:30 or 11:00 a.m. for adults, 9:30 for children, for further study and reflection. This will also tie in to our sermon series Sunday mornings from March 10-April 21.
The mission of our spiritual life ministry is to make disciples who are growing in the knowledge and likeness of Christ and to equip them for the work of ministry. To guide us in that mission, we have developed a model that identifies seven key areas of discipleship. We believe that it is God's desire for his church to grow in every way more and more like Christ, and in doing so, to be better equipped to share him with the world around us (Eph 4:11-16). As we give intentional focus to each of these discipleship categories, we allow God to use every opportunity to form us spiritually for his glory.
What are the essentials of the Christian faith? What we believe matters, but how intentional are we about defining those beliefs? Do we stand confidently on our beliefs as we engage others? What is the basis for believing what we do? Whether you're simply curious about Christianity, new to the faith, or have been following Jesus for years, we invite you to join us for Essential Beliefs, our winter 2019 season of Boost. This is an important opportunity to dig in and discover what we believe, why we believe it, and how it shapes our lives. We will meet every Wednesday from January 16 through March 13, 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., in Gathering Place Cafe at the church. Dinner is provided each night from 6:00-6:30!
Faith is a journey. To grow, we need to go deeper. We believe this happens when we move toward more authentic relationships with Jesus and one another. That's what Life Groups are all about: growing closer to others and to Jesus so we can become more like him. Are you ready to grow?
Men of all ages are invited to join us for food, fellowship, and a brief lesson. This event takes place at 8:00 a.m. on the second Saturday of each month in the cafe of the church building. This is a great opportunity to be encouraged and meet other men in the church.
