This series, like all the others, is God-given and just for us right now! It really came from the realization that there are two strains of people at FV (in general)…we have the people who LOVE to learn & worship, but don’t serve anywhere. And the people who LOVE to serve, but don’t do much learning & worshipping.
They are both forms of The Couch Potato. The Couch Potato Christian becomes useless in the hands of God very quickly, because LOVE TAKES WORK. If you don’t believe me, read the passages below, and come ready to receive what God has for us!
Pray for well-rounded, healthy disciples of Christ at FV.
Pray for anointing and vision for our pastors, as they prepare their messages for the church!

A great Bible Plan for a brand new believer!
Struggling with how to talk to a friend about baptism? Check out this page!
If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing right! Get all the info you need to get the job done well! This month, Sticky Church would be a great read, especially if you lead a small group of any kind!
The “Pathway” is all about intentionally making disciples of Jesus Christ! Most people bounce around and take these steps all out of order—that’s okay! The order is just an “ideal situation” for someone who is brand new to faith, brand new to FV, and assimilating into our church from the outside, in. If you’ve brought a friend to church lately, awesome! Now, help them move through these steps, and become a disciple of Jesus, not just a fan of church.
This will get them the Bible Plan for New Believers (above), and start them moving through the rest of the steps as well!
To help connect them to the pastors and to the church!
