FOLLOW – LET’S DISCOVER, DEVELOP AND DEPLOY DISCIPLES!

 

This Fall, Pastor Jensen will kick off a message series entitled, “Follow” where we join with our sister churches in the Eastern Regional Conference to learn how to Discover, Develop and Deploy Disciples for Jesus Christ.  A sneak peek “prequel” to the series will commence on Sunday, September 18.  Then, we will officially kick off the series proper on Sunday, October 2 (Worldwide Communion Sunday) along with our sister churches.  Prior to that time, you will be provided with a 43-day devotional book to help you take what you hear during the series (proper) on Sundays and dig in further during the week.  To help us prepare our hearts for this journey, we encourage every small group, Sunday School class and Ministry Team to pray.  Please consider coming out to Sunday evening Prayer Services – praying for “Follow” will be a major focus.  Finally, we encourage each person to pick one day in the month of September as a day of prayer and fasting.  Yes, discovering, developing, and deploying disciples is that important!  Below is a list of the themes, messages, and Scriptures we will share in this series.
