Starting Sunday, January 26th, we will be launching a 3rd worship gathering at 4:00pm.
The Go Challenge:
We are asking 200 people to give up their seats and move to the 4:00pm worship gathering in order to make room for more people to come and hear the gospel. We are asking 100 people to sacrifice their time by beginning serving on a Sunday serve team. With more gatherings, we need more hands serving. With more people coming through our doors, there are more opportunities to share the gospel. One of the ways we share the gospel on Sunday's is through serving.
As many of you know, our church facility is regularly maxed out in most areas. Our parking lot is maxed out, Bridge Kids is regularly overflowing, and on many Sunday's our auditorium is over capacity.
We know that our next step in order to make room for our city to come and hear the gospel is to expand to three worship gatherings. On Sunday, January 26th, we will be launching a 3rd worship gathering at 4:00pm! If we want to continue to grow and reach people that God is bringing to our church, it's going to require us to expand.
As we dive into our Go series and look at what it means to reach our neighbors, we have a couple of challenges for our church body. We are challenging 200 people to give up their seats at 9:00am and 11:00am for their neighbors. We have to make room for people to come. Secondly, we are asking 100 people to begin serving on Sunday's in order to serve their neighbors. With another worship gathering, we will need more hands serving in order to make this happen.
Pray! Pray and consider giving up your Sunday morning seat and moving to the 4:00pm worship gathering. Pray and consider serving on a Sunday serve team or increasing your availability to serve. We need your help to make this happen! Pray that our entire congregation, on the heels of our faith initiative, would continue to step out in faith by moving gatherings or joining a serve team. Pray that our church would step out of comfort and enter into a season where we put people in the front seat and our preferences in the backseat. Help us make room for our city to come and hear the gospel.
Jesus was on the go.
He was moving. He was moving towards others in order to know them and love them and help them. As Jesus-followers, our task is the same. We must go. That’s the “Great Commission.” This means we must be on the move. We must be moving towards those who don’t yet know God.
Our world is looking. Our world is waiting. Our world is hoping for meaning, purpose, change, and identity. However, the world is searching in all the wrong places. Thousands of people all around us are far from God. We have the hope. We have the light. We must go and tell them.
This will be a 3-Part sermon series from Luke 19:1-10—the story of Jesus meeting Zaccheus. The goal of the series is evangelism and reaching our neighbors. Jesus was not content with staying at a distance. We will take three weeks to examine this passage about Jesus and Zaccheus, and we will answer three main questions people in our culture are asking: Do you see me? Do you know me? Do you love me?
