“The two disciples heard him say this, and they followed Jesus. When Jesus turned and saw them following, he said to them, ‘What are you looking for?’” (John 1:37-38).
For the past couple of weeks, we have begun introducing to you a new ministry that we are kicking off this fall, Connect. Many of you are probably wondering what exactly is Connect? Connect is a six-week relational ministry experience designed by Pastor Greg, Pastor Pam, our Small Group Leadership Team led by Alicia Huntley, and myself. Through these Connect experiences, it is our hope that we, as disciples, will grow in relationship with one another and in our relationship with Christ.
The fall 2018 Connect theme is “What are you looking for?” based on Jesus’ question to the disciples. Through this six-week journey, huddles of 8-10 people will be taking a closer look at things we look for by being part of a Christian community. Connect sign-ups will start on Rally Weekend, September 8/9 and will continue through the following weekend. The Connect huddles will start the week of September 23. Connect huddles will be offered at a variety of times and locations throughout the week, so you should be able to find one that works with your schedule. The list of huddles will be in the Fall Eagle as well as in an insert in upcoming bulletins. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask one of the pastors; we would love to talk more with you about this exciting new ministry.
Connected in Christ,
