Growing Together At Home: Influencers
As we continue to face changing expectations and uncertainty it is important that we continue to live out our faith as the local church. Since we are currently not meeting together to study, learn and grow, we must make this a priority as families.
Each week, you will find a new audio message, along with some corresponding Scripture readings that focus on the topic addressed in the message. You will also see a number of questions designed for you and your family to discuss together, or for you to use in personal reflection and assessment. Our desire is that your family will have an opportunity to engage together with God’s Word and examine the expectations expressed for His family.
We are discussing today the eighth of twelve simple steps that will guide us in fulfilling the church’s mission to become disciples who make disciples. Today we will examine why it is important to Grow spiritually as a collective group of Christ followers, and one of the methods by which we do that – becoming/being an influencer.
