Hey my friends. I wanted to bring you all into some of the cool things God is doing in our ministry and in the church. Our mission as a singles ministry is to see others grow towards a greater maturity in Christ as disciples and there are many examples of God doing this through saving more people and then by growing them as followers of Christ. Here’s the scoop:
1. New believers group. My friends, Andrew & Gia Sandor, have just started a new small group whose sole purpose is to provide an encouraging, helpful environment for new believers. Their group is currently made up of new believers from the most recent Introducing God course and a handful of others who are new to the faith. It’s really neat to see how these new brothers & sisters are growing in Christ as they experience Christian community for the first time. Please pray for them!
2. CG Plant! Recently I met with one of my small groups that is no longer small, and needs to be multiplied. We explored a few options of what to do & together have decided to move forward with a care group “plant” idea. Instead of the traditional ‘splitting the group in two’, the existing group is going to “send out” a small team of 5-8 people to launch a new small group where I can place the many new people being added to our church. I love this idea as it reinforces our call to be sacrificing by making disciples; “going” & “teaching” others as followers of Christ.
3. Evangelism Strategy Meeting with local pastors. This morning I’ll be meeting with a group of local pastors with Ravi Zacharias & leaders from the C.S. Lewis Institute to pray and discuss ways our local churches can be partnering together in reaching the lost in the DC Metro area. Pray that God blesses our time and substantive gospel ministry & partnership results.
Thank you my friends for your partnership & prayers! Very grateful for each of you.
