Ministry Advance

ATTENTION: IMPORTANT UPCOMING
MINISTRY ADVANCE!

 Since ‘The Launch’ event last May, we have experienced an encouraging and challenging period of ministry initiatives taking root. God has been affirming and responding to our prayers and we are moving forward from vision to live ministry purposefully.

As Sabine Baring-Gould wrote in 1865 we are:
Like a mighty army, moving the church of God;
Friends, we are treading where the saints have trod;
We are not divided; all one body we,
One in hope and purpose, one in charity.

Our charge is to continue this MINISTRY ADVANCE!

ALL ARE INVITED to the next installment in our corporate commitment to live out I Thessalonians 5:11

Encourage one another and build each other up, as we have, in fact, been doing!

So Christ himself, handed out gifts of apostle, prophet, evangelist, and pastor-teacher to equip Christ’s followers in skilled servant work, working within Christ’s body, the church, until we’re all moving rhythmically and easily with each other, efficient and graceful in response to God’s Son, fully mature adults,
fully developed within and without, fully alive like Christ.
Eph. 4:11-13
