Many questions emerged during the pandemic, and this is one of the most challenging, “How do we move forward as a church?” The answer? We move forward on mission. We move forward together. In the FRWRD series, we examine our mission statement: “Connecting People to Jesus,” as well our Core Values. We planned the series to be a two-month celebration of who God designed us to be as a church family. Each week, we will have a practical application for you to discuss with your Life Group. Join us each week as we learn to move forward. On mission. Together.
ON MISSION. After the resurrection, Jesus unveiled a mission for the Church. “Go and make disciples of all nations” — the job Jesus gave us. Jesus empowers his people to go and make disciples in every nation. To follow Jesus is to be ON MISSION with him, making disciples in our neighborhoods, in our community, and in every nation!
TAKE HEART. We know this has been a difficult year — for some, heartbreaking. Easter is a time to find encouragement and hope at the empty tomb of Jesus Christ — He Lives! His words fill us with courage and confidence: "In this world y ou will have trouble, but TAKE HEART, I have overcome the world." John 16:33
The Book of Daniel. God is still in control. It can be hard to believe this when we watch the news around us, but he is still on the throne. We see this important theme in the book of Daniel. Those were scary days….like today. And so we learn how to trust the One who is in control, we learn to live by faith in hostile territory, and we learn to thrive in the darkest of days. Keep Calm - God is still in control..
