>>beyond>> is moving to thursday nights this week! I am really excited about this shift in date and time. I think it can be a really positive move for our ministry for a couple of reasons.
1) It will be good to get back to more of a service format. I think that will really help our ministry to focus again on our core values and our purposeof helping people discover trust and love Jesus Christ. We had a season of experimentation where we met as cell groups and then we met at my house over the summer and that was fun, but it will be good to get back to a service and since we will have more of a family night my hope is that parents will bring their kids. That’s the hope.
2) Meeting mid week will bring us to a closer connection to our students school life, and to their friends. Meeting on sunday was a challenge because we were all alone as far as church programming goes but we were also two days removed from school time. So I am hoping that we will be able to build some positive momentum during the mid-week.
So if you are a student reading this I hope you are excited about this change, bring your friends. Let’s help them meet Jesus. Let’s make a difference in our worlds with the power of the Gospel because it sets people free.
If you are a parent please bring your students out to ethos. The best way for our ministry to partner with you in helping your students grow closer to Jesus is if they are there. That is the best way for us to connect, build relationships and to challenge, encourage and equip them so please bring your students out, and if you don’t have a course that you are going to then hop into the worship time that will be gathering at the same time.
See you thursday.
