During the month of February we are continuing on in our journey to discover what it means to follow and invite others to follow Jesus Christ. I am excited to hear from many of our leaders on what this particular statement means to them. Even though Alecia is on medical leave, leaders have stepped up, they are listening to God, and then delivering God’s message to us each week, you really do not want to miss out.
Jesus gave what is known today as the Great Commission, which is to “go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you” – (Matthew 28:19–20). Essentially this is where our mission statement comes from; “To follow and invite others to follow Jesus Christ.”
These words do not mean that everyone is called to be a preacher. Not everyone is called to be a Paul or a Peter either. You might be a behind- the-scenes person. You might be someone, whom few people know about, but you are where you are, and you want to do what you do for God’s glory. Whoever God created you to be—we are all called to go and make disciples.
Sunday mornings/Saturday evenings are not a time to miss. God’s Spirit is moving powerfully among the leadership and the body in the church. I truly believe you will be blessed by each of the leaders’ message. I encourage each of you to come and discover what our mission means to you, “To follow and invite others to follow Jesus Christ” over the next few weeks and we continue our journey through the month of February.
