Notes from Pastor Brian
Want to grow?
Acts 2:42, 46 “They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers…day by day, as they spent much time together in the temple, they broke bread at home and ate their food with glad and generous hearts…”
In the early church, they spent time together. And that time together led to personal as well as ministry growth.
Want to grow?
We use Growth Groups to grow – in ministry and in our personal growth. God moves in our lives when Christians faithfully and intentionally spend time together, eat together, pray together, study together (Acts 2:42, 46).
In Creating Community, Andy Stanley and Bill Willits describe church life as a house. The foyer (mud room, if you like) is the entrance place: that’s Sunday morning worship. The Living Room is designed to help people become better acquainted: that’s ministry teams, Sunday School, Fellowship time between services, and church outings. And then there’s the Kitchen Table: that’s Growth Groups (where you get to know people deeply).
Ready to grow?
Ready to join at the kitchen table? To eat and pray and study and learn and share together? Join a Growth Group this fall as we investigate how to share our faith with others while we read Tell Someone by Greg Laurie.
Because of Jesus,
Pastor Brian Keller
