January-February's Gospel Rhythm: Listening to the Scriptures consistently and meditatively
The Gospel Rhythms are six everyday habits designed to help us structure our lives around grace and mission. This year, we will review these six rhythms by focusing on one at a time, every two months. During Jan-Feb, we are focusing on the rhythm of listening to Scripture. The gospel shapes and forms our lives as we learn to listen consistently and meditatively to the Scriptures. This listening can take many different forms but each follower of Jesus needs to develop a practice of regular Scripture intake. The gift of God’s word to us needs to be received daily as our very source of life (Deut. 8:1-4). Here are some things for you to consider in starting or renewing your rhythm of listening to Scripture:
· A Plan – Commit to a plan and share it with a friend.
· A Place – Find a place in your daily/weekly schedule where you will make space to listen.
· With People - Identify people who can do this with you or whom you will regularly share updates.

Ever wonder what you have to offer that can make a spiritual impact in the lives of others? The truth is God has uniquely worked in each of us to have gospel impact on the people He brings into our lives. 201 will help you see how your unique strengths, spiritual gifts, story and even your suffering are all a part of how God's grace can work through you. This is a BETA course that will help us create an online course for future use. We will use a variety of tools and assessments – this course will require reading, homework and participation! Please contact Pastor Eric for more information.
Meets regularly every Sunday immediately following service from 11:45 am - 12:30 pm and on the first Friday of the month.
