Intentional Faith Development, Extravagant Generosity,
and Risk-Taking Mission and Service
These are the five practices of vital, fruitful congregations. These are the practices that lead to excellence and growth in the life of a church. And they are the practices we will be focusing on for the five weeks of July.
Imagine what can happen if everyone in our congregation will spend these five consecutive weeks praying, focusing on and practicing these five attributes. God can change individuals, whole families, and our whole church – including the difference we make in and beyond our surrounding community.
Join us each Sunday. Pray for your church each day and ponder where God may be gifting you to serve as we exercise vitality and increase our fruitfulness.
