WEEKLY DISCIPLESHIP RESOURCES
Here are a few discipleship resources our elders recommend checking out this week.
- From the Flooded Grounds of Houston - Houston, along with its connected neighborhoods, communities, and suburbs, is being pummeled by historic rain and unprecedented flooding. It’s a disaster here.
- Why We Really Sleep In - Reason is valuable for sanctification, but reason alone cannot do the job. In fact, spiritual taste — a new desire that draws us toward God’s holiness.
- Discernment For Decision Making - Most of us find decision making to be a platform for anxiety in our hearts and minds. Of course, we should always go to God in prayer, asking Him to shut all the wrong doors and open the right door. But, we also have biblical principles to help us carry out the decision making process.
Please read them and use them as discipleship opportunities to discuss with one another. You can also view an archive of recommended discipleship resources here.
FALL 2017 FELLOWSHIP GROUP SIGN UPS
We are pleased to announce that Fellowship Groups will be resuming again the week of Sept 3, 2017. These groups will run from September through November 2017. A Fellowship Group is a formal group who commit to meet together regularly for the purpose of living and cultivating gospel community with one another (Acts 2:42-47). They are one of the best ways to experience formal gospel community and an opportunity to help facilitate discipling relationships with other members.
Please take a moment to view and signup for a Fellowship Group for the Fall 2017 term (Sept - Nov 2017) here.
HURRICANE HARVEY RELIEF
Hurricane Harvey hit the Texas coast as a Category 4 storm on Friday, August 25. Damage from the storm and subsequent flooding is widespread. It will take months, and in some areas years, to restore Houston to its former state.
Here are some ways that you can get involved in the relief efforts.
