Advent 1: Let it be

Focus statement: We awaken to God’s purpose, which begins in darkness—whether seed in the ground, child in the womb, or new self in the soul. We are shaking, fearful, and resistant, yet we call upon God to tear open the heavens and be present with us in our uncertainty.

Scripture: Isaiah 64:1-9;Luke 1:26-38; Mark 13:24-27

Peace Sunday: Mission Moment

From Here to Maturity - Recap

As we reflect on our maturation as disciples and the ongoing process of transformation of our hearts and lives, there are four questions which we can consider. 1. What’s Right? 2. What’s Wrong? 3. What Needs Clarifying? 4. What’s Missing? As we consider and engage with these questions in community, we will continue to grow into mature followers of Jesus.

Purposeful and Persevering: Finishing Well

Philippians 3:7-16; Colossians 3:5-17; Hebrews 12:1-13

A person who knows that discipleship is a lifelong journey of increasing responsiveness to God, embracing the perspective that we are on a path toward maturity, that having a relationship with Jesus is our greatest treasure, and that heaven is our real home.
