3 steps we will be taking as a church this year

Church Family,

During the last email I mentioned what I believe are some of things the Lord is leading our church to focus on for this year.

  1. A deeper focus on small groups
  2. Making Disciples at home and around the world.
  3. Prayer, lots of prayer.

This morning I want to mention some basic steps for how we are going to do this and our ultimate reason for why.

  1. To develop stronger small groups we are going to continue Reaching, Teaching, and Ministering to others. This includes a nasty word, accountability. We want to develop a culture that expects others to walk along side of us as we serve Christ.
  2. We are going to practice making every conversation into an opportunity to present the gospel.
  3. We are going to intentionally ask publicly, what is best versus what is good? With this question we will be required to pray for faith to accomplish what’s best and for peace. Any time there is movement there is friction. We need to pray as God continues to change us to be more like Him.

 

Why are we doing all of this?

2 Corinthians 5:20 20Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. 

In everything that we do as a body of Christ, we want to be used by God to appeal to the lost to be reconciled to God. As an ambassador we are representing Christ. We want to tell the world that if they want to see an example of Jesus, then look to us.

Reminders:

  1. We will not have night services this Sunday.
  2. January 22nd we are hosting the Associational meeting. Matt Hess, Toronto Church Planter, will be here to speak to the association. Matt is also bringing his mission coordinator, Scott Ridenour
  3. January 24th Matt Hess will be with us to meet just our church and spend time with us. Come and learn more about our partnership with Matt to reach the world for Christ.
  4. June 24th- 30th we are going to Toronto for a mission trip.
  5. Be in prayer as to how God can use us to reach Conway and the surrounding areas for Christ this year.

Big Question: Can you share how God used the church, an event, or person to impact you and/or your family this year?

Love, Serve, Go
