We come seeking Jesus our teacher and model for our faith. We find him at the home of a known sinner eating dinner with low-lifes and degenerates. Jesus calls us sinners to follow him to bring healing and hope to those who need it most.
This year the leadership team at our church read Robert Schnase’s book The Five Practices of Fruitful Congregationsand we wanted to share the great information and inspiration he provides with the rest of the congregation. I decided to use the season of Easter to preach a series on this book. Focusing on these five practices will help us prepare for the big event we had planned on Pentecost. Pentecost is traditionally known as the birthday of The Church so we thought, let’s throw a big birthday party for The Church and use Pentecost as our ‘bring a friend to church’ Sunday!

I will be posting the prayers and Call to Worships we use in the weeks ahead.
