Influence others for Christ
We believe that God has called us not to just pursue a deeper relationship with him and to build a caring community, but also to influence others for Christ. The driving force of our fall Spiritual Growth Campaign is “Influence.” We believe that as Christians we can and should have God’s influence through the power of God’s word and God’s Spirit. All of us have a realm of influence.
We don’t do this alone. The Holy Spirit leads and empowers. The message is simple yet powerful. It’s a message of not just words but deeds. And influencing others for Christ takes courage. Courage is simply faith in action. And if we want to see God work, we’d better pray. Because prayer empowers us to care and prayer empowers us to live for Christ. And when we live for God, he enables us to be generous. And generosity helps us to have even greater influence because a generous church has power.
This is where we are going this fall in our weekend services and our small groups (we call them Life Groups). Why don’t you join us? We are encouraging people to work on and share their personal spiritual journey.
We are also encouraging people to know “God’s Story” (the Gospel) in a deeper way. Please join us on Sunday mornings – October 20th & 27th and November 3rd @ 8:45am – as we learn together. Finally, we are partnering with the Billy Graham association in Canada for their “My Hope” campaign in early November. If you would like to join us, our next “My Hope” training event is October 21st @ 7:00pm.
