A Restful, Relational Summer
SEASON: ORDINARY TIME
Ordinary Time begins on the Monday after Pentecost, the conclusion of the Easter season, and continues until the Saturday before the First Sunday of Advent, roughly 30 weeks. Its a time of growing in our faith by practicing it in “ordinary” ways - both as individuals and as a church body.
REST, RELATIONSHIPS & PRAYER
This summer, our goal is to grow together as individuals and families by intentionally and informally connecting - making “ordinary” time for one another instead of our usual monthly events. The specific encouragement is to reach out to individuals or families you hope to know better, share a meal, get to know each other, pray together, and find out how you can support one another. Beyond our church fellowship, seek out fresh opportunities with your neighbors, co-workers or others to be a light and encouragement to them. Let’s be the Church for the life of the world and for each other!
PRAYING TOGETHER WEEKLY
Every Wednesday morning this summer, beginning in June, from 7:40 - 8:20am we’ll host a brief, but meaningful prayer time at Textile Hall (582 Perry Ave). If you can be there at least occasionally, great! If you can’t, please set a portion of this time apart when you can to intercede with us for God’s will in our fellowship, for one another, for our city & nation, and for a constant outpouring of his Spirit. We will be sending some prayer direction your way each week. If you’d be interested in helping lead this, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
(Keep praying about the prospective building! No word yet.)
