Happy New Year!
A new year and a new beginning is upon us. As we move forward, we are inviting you to lend a hand.
The Teaching Team
Kyle and Matthew will work together in bringing the teaching to the community this year. They will integrate the Sunday morning message with the small group resource Matthew has been preparing. After Matthew wraps up the Gospel of Mark, we will be in 1- Corinthians, seeking insight from the Lord on “What is Church?”
The Conversation So Far
The Lord has used the Sunday afternoon Zoom gatherings to begin to clarify the way forward. We are seeing that church is best understood as a community with a variety of different forms and functions depending on what the Lord wants to do. Meeting in a large assembly, in homes, in service throughout the valley are all faithful expressions of “church,” when the Lord is present and in charge. As we walk together with Jesus, we are confident He will lead us more deeply into authentic, empowering connections with Him and one another.
The Work to Be Done
There is a lot to do. In the coming weeks we will be sharing a variety of needs you can help with. Here’s a start:
