Your prayers for us means so much! When we pray, our eyes are opened to see God at work all around us. This week, I wanted to share a bit about what’s going on with our church in terms of our Board of Stewards, Mission, Discipleship, and Worship. Yesterday, we reported on the Mission. Today it’s….
Yesterday, I wrote that mission is the fruit of discipleship and promised to send out news on our discipleship ministry. Good things are happening in discipleship as you can read below.
Discipleship is God’s plan of action for transforming the world, so it’s a big deal when new folks get involved in discipleship. In recent months, God has brought four new folks have into our discipleship gatherings – two at the lunch huddle and two in the evening. One aspect of discipleship helping people discover and prepare for their personal ministries. Much of what unfolded in terms of mission this summer can be understood as the fruit of discipleship, of “spurring one another on to love and good deeds” (Hebrews 10:25b). So please pray for God’s continued work in our Huddles and join us as we pray for open doors for new work in discipleship!
Thank you again for praying and supporting FCMC. What we do flows from who we are – we are God’s children. Discipleship is very much about discovering and living into our identity in Christ. It keeps us from falling back too much into old habbits. For in Christ, we are new creations. The old is gone. The new has come. (Seen II Cor 5:17)
Thank you for helping us on the journey! Your encouragement and prayers mean so much! And thank you for reading and for supporting God’s work at First Coast Missional Communities!
