We continue the Jesus Adventure with a voyage into the depths of God’s plan for us. We will plunge into the deep waters to be soaked by the Spirit as we explore a life that is overflowing with growth in our authentic relationships with God and others. We envision an entire community coming alive to the beauty of life with Christ. Worship gatherings, spiritual formation groups, and community connections will be used as the diving gear to encounter the power of life in Christ and encourage others to join.

September 11 Awakening Hearts – On the road to Emmaus, the disciples did not recognize Jesus and they did not yet understand their calling. But their eyes were opened, and their hearts were awakened to a new life. God is revealing to each one of us how we are uniquely called to follow him in our daily lives. A mission statement serves as the compass to direct our ministry. In our new mission statement, Jesus calls awake our hearts, our physical, intellectual, and emotional core of who we are as his children. With our hearts focused on Christ, we are mobilized to fulfill our potential in the Kingdom of God.

September 18 Every Generation – Mary’s heart gave glory to God for the great gift that would be born. Through the birth of Jesus, every generation would be changed by his mission of salvation. A mission statement serves as the compass to direct our ministry. In our new mission statement, we are reminded that this great gift is not for only one generation, but every generation. We exist in an ever changing community, and we strive to present the gospel in practical ways to each generation. We celebrate every stage of life that is represented at church, in our homes, and in our community.

September 25 To the Power of Life in Christ – Paul teaches that Christ has the power to transform our lives by the renewing of our minds. Our lives are not transformed for our own benefit, but to serve him. The birth, life, death, resurrection, ascension, and promised return of Jesus gives us our identity, our purpose, and our eternal destination. It transforms all that we think, say, and do to bring joy and intentionality in our relationships and vocations. A mission statement serves as the compass to direct our ministry. In our new mission statement, we are reminded that we are released from our sin, and we are free to boldly live out our faith. God sees us through the righteousness of his Son and empowers us to see one another in the same way.
