The congregation of Hope in Christ Church has made the Spirit-filled decision to move forward and become a healthy missional church. This week’s Missional Marker is:
fruitful organizational structures (Exodus 18:13‐26, Acts 6:1-7)
- We can articulate a compelling, Christ-honoring vision for our church.
- We embrace evaluation as normal and natural and work through conflict constructively.
- Our organizational structures are designed to be efficient at making decisions while at the same time building congregational ownership for those decisions.
Bible Reading for This Week
Pastor Scott’s sermon text for March 1st is Matthew 26:38-39. The sermon title is “Cries of the Heart.” Read chapters three and four of Moving Mountains in preparation for adult Sunday school. Please let Pastor Scott or your elder know if you need a book.
Each week we pray for members of our church family. Suggested prayers are for their spiritual growth, opportunities to see Christ in their everyday lives, and anything else that God puts on your mind for them. This week please pray for:
- Marilyn K.
- Wilma K.
