This fall, we are excited to launch a new adventure as a church together. Beginning Sunday October 3, we’re introducing Follow Me. From the authors:
Following Jesus is a lifelong journey where we learn and do what Jesus said and did.
It takes more than the head, checking off boxes of belief.
It even takes more than the heart, feeling deeply about another person or a cause. Following Jesus is about these things and more. It is also about doing.
It takes practice… putting faith and love into action.
This life of faith begins with an invitation: Follow me. With these two words, Jesus invited people to turn their hearts and their lives in a new direction. He taught them to see their God, their neighbors and themselves with new eyes. He modeled a God-filled life.
We begin there too. Throughout the month of October, we’ll explore what it means to Follow Jesus through age-appropriate activities integrated with worship. Throughout November, we’ll explore what it means to Welcome All.
