As a church, we’ve had a couple of huge weeks. I recently spoke at our Barnabas Generation 2016 kick-off event. We hosted the Women’s Night of Worship, our Creative Arts Ministry Open House and began our “Marriage for a Lifetime” series (37 couples attended)! We also launched both our women’s group “What Love Is” study of 1, 2 & 3 John, and our men’s group study, “Honor Among Us.”
Also, our Leader Community has been getting together monthly to share a meal, do some training, worship and pray for each other. Generally just making time to get together to build relationship and stay connected. Our times together have been Spirit-filled and really encouraging (Our next Leader Community gathering is tomorrow, Saturday, February 28 at 10 AM in the Lodge if you would like to join us. Bring a breakfast dish to share)!
I hope you enjoyed Robby Dawkins being with us last weekend as much as I did. His message on heritage and legacy was very powerful. Here is a link to the message if you missed it: CLICK HERE.
This weekend we are kicking off a new series, “FOCUS: Four Viewpoints that Change the World”. One of the main scripture passages is, “I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat is planted in the soil and dies, it remains alone. But its death will produce many new kernels—a plentiful harvest of new lives” John 12:24. In John 15, Jesus went on to speak about the importance of bearing fruit. Good fruit — fruit that will last. This is, in large part, why we do so much outreach to our community. To create opportunities for us to get out into the community and make a difference.
One last item… if you are interested in helping with one of our annual Easter Egg Hunts CLICK HERE. You can also sign up at any one of the kiosks located around campus. We are hosting Easter Egg Hunt outreaches at several locations this year. You can choose the location where you would like to serve!
