Bless part 5
Tomorrow we begin part 5 of our BLESS series! This is our final week and I have a question - if you received an envelope with $25 at the beginning of this series what have you done with it?Hit reply and tell me your story! If you have been on the fence about what to do with your money I want to encourage you - DO SOMETHING :) Seriously though - don't ponder about what to do but just jump at the next opportunity you see and BLESS someone. Seeya tomorrow!
I don't know about you but I'm excited for summer to be here! i'm excited for the different rhythms that summer bring - cookouts, camping, block parties, concerts, and vacations! Next week we are going to one service for the summer! We have two major focuses this summer (we will go back to two in the fall) - to build community and to build up our teams! In the coming weeks we will be sending out some events that we have planned to help us connect with each other and with others this summer!
I love new life and I love transformation! I love seeing people follow Jesus and watch how Jesus begins to transform their priorities, their decisions, their motives, their life. Baptism is a celebration of your commitment to follow Jesus and new life in Jesus. It shows the old life is buried and new life in Christ begins. If you would like to take this step on July 23rd we are having an all church picnic and baptism service! Let me know if you are interested in getting baptized and taking this important next step! Head on over to myrenew.church and fill out the baptism card! I can't wait for this service and picnic!
We all love a good story - story is how we connect with each other. Think about it - when you hang with friends, meet someone new, go on a date, what do you do in order to get to know them? You share your story and you listen to theirs. We have a story page on our new site. Stories are how we connect to one another and we find ourselves in the bigger story of Jesus! Take a moment to read a couple stories from people in our community and let us know if there is an aspect of your story that you would like to share! People are blessed and are connected when they hear your story! Here is the link https://www.discoverrenew.org/stories
"Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it" (1 Corinthians 12:27)
