We began a journey in the fall of 2015 to THRIVE spiritually, personally, and to help the church and others THRIVE as well. Beginning September 10, 2017, we embarked on a new journey to ENGAGE! This journey began with the foundation of our faith - God's Word. We accepted a challenge to intentionally engage God's word with purpose and meaning. Then, in January 2018 we accepted the challenge to engage the Holy Spirit, followed by a challenge in the fall of 2018 to engage our spiritual gifts through service and ministry. Our final engage challenge was to engage God's creation by taking better care of this beautiful world we live in. Now we are thrilled to launch our third church-wide initiative: UNITE!
In the fall of 2019 we were challenged to Unite at the Cross and embarked on a journey to a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ followed by a challenge to Unite in Prayer. This past fall we joined together to Unite in the Word as we dove into God's word each and every day. Now we invite you to join us for our final Unite challenge - to Unite in Service and Witness!
We have continued to THRIVE as we ENGAGED in powerful ways. And, now we look forward to united together as we look to change lives and change the world through Jesus Christ.
Let's Unite in Service and Witness!
We are so excited to invite you to join us in our next Unite challenge:
Unite in Service and Witness
By accepting this challenge, we will be a powerful witness for Christ by serving one another. We are called, as disciples, to be the hands and feet of Christ in the world. This is why we serve – so that we will be saved by the transformational power of Jesus Christ. Our daily prayer is, “God, show me those who need your love.” Then, we go out and love!
The Strategy Team partnered with the missions and witness teams and we have provided numerous ways, both in person and remotely, to serve and witness to others in the name of Christ. It is not as daunting as you may think – some opportunities they provide are very easy to do and will have a positive impact on those around us.
And . . . we are giving away TWO great gifts if you accept this challenge!
- You will be mailed a very special gift to help provide ways to serve and witness
- The month of February is all about loving others and it’s fitting that it will also be “A Month to Unite in Service & Witness”! Every day in February you will receive an email devotion, testimony, or reflection that shares the power of serving and witnessing in the name of Christ. These will be written by others from our faith community!
