Friday Followings: Gather, GROW, Give, and Go

Hello Gloria Dei,
 
Just a quick note today to remind you that we’re in a four week preaching series called, Fit for Life: Strengthening our Core. As you know, we’re using four words from our Gloria Dei Mission Statement – Gather, Grow, Give, and Go. 
 
Last week we heard about the importance of gathering in worship to be shaped by God and his saving Word. If you weren’t able to be present, please go onto the website and listen to last weekend’s sermon, as these are meant to all work together to strengthen our core and keep us spiritually fit.
 
This week the focus is on GROW. In preparation for worship, read the whole Bible. Just kidding… wanted to make sure you’re still following me. Seriously though, in preparation for worship, please choose any portion of Scripture and read and meditate on it. Maybe it’s a favorite chapter or verse that you’ve read many times. Or maybe it’s something brand new. The more we are in the Word of God, the more Holy Spirit works on our faith and we grow in our relationship with God.
 
There is so much going on at Gloria Dei for you to connect with, whether in the area of fellowship, Bible Study, outreach, education, care, you name it. Please check our website and join in as you are able. As you do, you’ll witness growth in faith and you’ll become more and more spiritually fit.
 
Thanks for your partnership in the gospel of Christ and I’ll see you in worship!
 
Pastor Tim
