Lead and Follow1
I trust our Father provided new awareness of your identity as his image bearer during this past week. For myself, I was able to revel afresh in God’s design for men and women as Jayne and I spent some time celebrating our 22nd anniversary. We were able to reflect on what God has been teaching us over the past year, especially these last several months, and it was a gift to us both.
Sunday will be the final teaching in the Foundations series and will focus on what an elder-led, deacon supported church looks like. Join us as we dig into what God’s Word says about leadership within the body and how that relates to the equipping and mobilization of others to serve the body. If you’d like to prepare for Sunday’s message, please spend some time in 1 Timothy 3:1-13; Titus 1:5-9; 1 Peter 5:1-5.
