Great things didn’t happen because people attended church. Great things happen when people commit to being, giving and serving!
That’s our history so what’s our future?
Being, giving and serving for:
– Now needs, people here in this moment
– Growing, maturing, including our kids and families
– Going further than any one of us can go alone
– As a model
We get there by being exactly who God has already made us.
- Friendly, just being who we are
- Serve, volunteer, because: Everyone has something awesome to do for Jesus!
“Too busy to serve at your local church? FYI: Every Sunday you attend your local church you are served by very busy people. Get involved!” Andy Stanley
“Even when we don’t get a miracle, we can be a miracle for someone else.” Nick Vujicic
- Gather or Reach
Goal for Easter: Everyone Reach One
The most important metric? The number of FTA’s who return the following week!
Don’t just lead your friends and family to church, lead them to connect in worship and Small Groups!
Why does any of this matter?
“Do we really believe that Jesus told His early followers to make disciples but wants the twenty-first-century church to do something different? None of us would claim to believe this, but somehow we have created a church culture where the paid ministers do the ‘ministry,’ and the rest of us show up, put some money in the plate, and leave feeling inspired or ‘fed.’” Frances Chan
