Current Series: Ephesians
What’s in Your Letter? Paul wrote Ephesians to the young church in Ephesus nearly two thousand years ago! What message does it have for us today as a church and as Christians in the 21st century? The challenge: read Ephesians (it’s only 6 chapters!) and then listen on the coming Sundays for the message – for YOU!
Today’s Scripture: Ephesians 4:1-16

Back-to-School Supplies for Ackerman – Speaking of being kind, we are gathering school supplies for our friends next door at Ackerman Elementary. Twenty percent of kids at Ackerman are eligible for free and reduced lunch, so the need for assistance is real — right in our back yard. The school is always appreciative of our help each fall to supplement school supplies for students and classrooms.

Normal, Natural Pathways Workshop – October 13th – Please join us for an upcoming workshop open to the congregation. Every church congregation has a unique “personality” and way of connecting with the culture around them. In this workshop, we will seek to:
- Identify your church’s unique personality, and the normal ways the Holy Spirit draws people into a life-changing relationship with Jesus in your context
- Walk the natural faith journey of a person, noting the key moments when the church provides transformative presence and “next steps” in a person’s discipleship
- Explore key systems of the church that are essential for developing a maturing disciple, and create an action plan to enhance weak or missing system
