Dear First Family,
For our Bible Study tonight we’ll be watching the video of Rev. Thomas Daniel’s sermon at FPC, Magnolia on Sunday, May 8, 2016.This worship service was the culmination of his weekend at Magnolia, First to present the Fellowship of Presbyterians Community to that congregation and her neighbors. Several of us from FPC, TXK attended the Saturday event, and Mark & Martha Nell Richards returned for Sunday worship.
What is the Fellowship of Presbyterians? In their words, “The Fellowship Community is a network of churches and leaders called together to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ by growing in Christ’s likeness, living by God’s word, and joining in God’s mission in the world.”
How is this different than what we’re already to be about? It’s not, really.
This network, along with NEXT CHURCH, is a way for us to be “called back” to our original intent as a community of faith. In this rapidly changing world, the church has a tendency to get sidetracked and lose focus on what is most important – presentation of and living of the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Fellowship Community and NEXT CHURCH are ways for us to come together to remember our call and hold each other accountable.
Next week Sarang with share more about NEXT CHURCH with us by sharing 3 Ignite Presentations about ministries that have flourished in a new way.
