God is inviting us to Search and Respond; keeping our eyes open and hearts in tune with Him, ready to respond in whatever way He asks.
This ministry year God is calling our faith family to pray for the lost, discover where He is leading and share the Gospel.
SEARCH FOR WHERE GOD IS LEADING AND RESPOND IN FAITH!
FOR THE LOST
The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.
WHERE GOD IS LEADING
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.
THE GOOD NEWS
He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.”
We are called to join Jesus on His mission to reach the people He places in our lives. We are committing to pray for the people that God places on our hearts who don’t know Him. Through having a deeper relationship with God, we will discover where He is leading, inviting us to step out in obedience by sharing the Gospel when He prompts each of us.

5 WEEKS OF COMMUNITY & TEACHING SERIES
This series is a special opportunity for us to join with others on a regular basis for 5 weeks for the purpose of focusing on where God is leading us this coming year. Together, we will be looking at the Book of Acts, recognizing how God is calling us today to share the good news of Jesus in the same way he led His earliest followers. By participating in this series in community, we experience the joy of growing closer with others as we live out God’s ultimate purpose together.

SEEK THE LOST CLASS
Sundays | November 10-24 | 9-10:15 AM | Courtyard Room
Do you struggle with how to share your faith or doubt your ability to communicate the gospel well? Many of us want to initiate deeper conversations with others, but just need some tools that would help us feel more confident about taking the first step. In this three-week class, we will cover areas such as how to turn a conversation toward spiritual things, how to share Jesus in a clear and concise way, how to bring someone to a point of decision, and how to write your testimony.
