Have you ever found yourself saying, "I know I'm supposed to seek God, but I'm not quite sure how." One of the things I've noticed and/or experienced over my years in vocational ministry is that pastors, elders, teachers, leaders, etc. are pretty good at reminding Christians of what they're supposed to do. But not so good at teaching them how to do it!
I think (I hope anyway!) that Christians realize that reading their bible, praying, being a part of a church, serving- are all things they need to do in order to grow into mature disciples, but they don't always have a plan or strategy for how to best do these things. Therefore, time can be wasted, it can get frustrating, and even confusing.
Well, that is EXACTLY why we're offering "Seeking God" as one of our "next steps" opportunities at FCPC. "Seeking God" is our way of teaching people HOW to read their bibles, HOW to pray, HOW to be involved in a church, HOW to serve, etc. We're offering it for the very first time Sunday, Oct. 20th right after the service. Lunch will be provided. I think it's going to be super helpful for all those who come.
And even is you're a "seasoned saint" and already know everything, you should come to, so that you can help other people who don't quite know it all yet!
Hope to see you there!
