I’m very excited to be starting a new message series this weekend, Stronger Faith, a series about going deeper. I came across this verse as I have been preparing for this series over the past several weeks, “Give attention to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart; For they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh. Proverbs 4:20-22 (NKJV) Did you notice that it takes every part of who we are to grow stronger in our faith? It takes giving our attention by hearing, seeing, feeling… all of who we are, pressing in, drawing close, meditating on His word and spending time with Him.
This weekend we will be taking Communion together during worship. This is a great opportunity to reflect on our relationship with Christ, and draw closer to Him.
Also this weekend our children’s ministry (preschool-5th grade) will be having an outdoor worship experience. Go ahead and check your kids in as usual, then head out to the green space outside at the far end of the lobby in the Family Center. Their teachers will be waiting for them there.
Tomorrow (Saturday, September 30th from 1:30-4:30P) Aurora is facilitating Sozo Training 101. This training is a beginning level inner healing training. It will equip participants to begin the journey of joining our Sozo Inner Healing Team. Cost $25 includes books and materials. To register CLICK HERE.
Over the past week or two we launched a lot of groups! We also have quite a few new home groups that are starting the first week of October, including Dayton, Kettering and Beavercreek. We also have a group for married couples and a new group for single adults. CLICK HERE to find a group! (Just for the guys, we have our men’s Triads forming now!)
One last item, if you have always wanted to go on a mission trip, we have two trips in the works. One to Costa Rica (January 2018) and one to Kenya, Africa (November 2018). There will be an informational meeting Oct. 2nd from 7-9P in the Northwest Lobby in the FLC, please REGISTER if you plan to attend this meeting. For more information contact Kevin Hoffman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
