“How you ought to walk and please God…” 1 Thessalonians 4:1
I hope you’ve been encouraged and had a little fun with the Got Journey? emphasis. I’ve enjoyed digging into Paul’s letter to the Church at Thessalonica to discern the qualities of a fully devoted Christ follower. Paul’s endearing letter to the ancient congregation has served as a contemporary model for discipleship. I hope you’ve taken the opportunity to take inventory of your life, insuring that you’re on the Journey. It is our prayer that every member has been able to say in this month that they’ve “Got Journey!” Our Journey Process simply helps us to embrace Paul’s admonition. “To walk worthy and please God…” I trust you’re enlisting others to ensure to join you on your Journey with Jesus at Canaan.
Have you signed up to Show Jesus on the Missionopoly Board?
This Sunday, we’ll explore the many ways you and your family can be a faithful witness for Christ in our neighborhood and to the nations at Canaan. I hope you’ll take the time to encourage someone to join you this Sunday as we conclude our emphasis on the Journey Process.
Thank you for praying for our Annual CLT Retreat! The Father was faithful to show up in a significant way this past weekend. It is always an inspirational and enjoyable time as your staff and leaders gather at Shocco to hear God’s Heart for His Church for 2017 and beyond. We see the fruition of our labor of love as the year unfolds.
Two Sharing Life Events are launching in the next few weeks. On Tuesday evening, January 31st, our youth and men will gather to draft our basketball teams. The season kicks off the next Tuesday. Then Friday, February 3rd, our coed volleyball season begins. These are wonderful opportunities for us to Share Life with our Fellowship while inviting opportunities to join us as we gather.
I’m grateful for every Journey Group that has committed to develop Relationships in 2017! Shepherds, has your class turned in your commitment postcard to connect with absentees on your roll and opportunities connected to your class? I hope you’ll join the classes that have made that commitment. Classes that regularly make contacts are the ones that grow!
Please remember to recognize the Teague’s on Bro Charles’ 12th anniversary. We are so grateful for their labor of love amongst us!
Don’t forget to build those Relationships and encourage someone to join you this Sunday!
Your grateful partner on the Journey,
