On Sunday, October 13, 2019, we started a new 40 Day Challenge called “Give Up to Grow Up”.
This series will focus on the ways in which the church in the book of Acts lived out its commitment to faithfully support one another and serve Christ through prayer, worship, giving, service, fasting and accountability. No one likes to give up, but being a follower of Jesus requires surrender. We are going to be talking about what it means to give up time, idols, fear, money, social media or whatever keeps you from growing in Christ.
You can click here to get the 40 day plan for reading through the book of Acts, prompts for prayer, commitment to worship and service. You can click here to read reflections from Pastor David along this 40 day journey.
As encouragement to try this on, we will be inviting you to use this page to use as a personal tracker for accountability. We'll invite you to turn it in as part of your offering to God on Sunday, November 24. Along the way, each Sunday in worship we will invite everyone to write on a "pumpkin vine leaf" about your experience during the week with this challenge. By the end of 40 days we hope to see many beautiful leaves growing on our pumpkin vine in the sanctuary.
