This month, I saw the church working in beautiful, selfless ways. I saw people who barely knew each other, giving each other things that they had, and their fellow church members needed. When a church is healthy, it is selfless.
This month’s Partnership challenge:
Read Acts 2:41-47. Is there anything listed there that you could get better at?
Examine your own fruit. How are you adding to the life of the church? If you aren’t, how could you?
Huge numbers of new families at our Christmas services
A sense of deep passion and awe comes over our church in our “Wonder” Christmas series
A selfless passion for disciple-making in each and every one of our partners
Our preaching theme this Christmas season is “Wonder”, and above all, we are praying that God would instill a sense of wonder about His Son, Christ Jesus. We will be teaching about why Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life!
Pray for anointing & vision for our pastors, as they prepare!
