Centering and Benediction: Jeff Dalverny
As we continue our making disciples focus, we are going to take a break from the House Church Leaders guide and spend some time discussing Lent and Kairos moments, which can also be intentional tools to be used when discipling or leading. Melissa has the centering and Kessa has the benediction (thank you ladies!). Come ready to share a Kairos moment from your life. We will be meeting at the Deakynes again this week (a bit of a change in our normal schedule) at 7pm.
This Thursday we will have house church at the DeaKyne’s house starting at 7pm. We will focus on Practices for House Church. Each group will lead the whole group in an exercise from their assigned part. Groups are:
Practicing the presence of God: Brian, Joe, Kessa, and Karey
Reading the Scripture for transformation: Grant, Brad, and Melissa
Praying with expectation: Jeff, Jeff, Stef and Lisa
Each group has about 15-20 minutes to lead the group through an experience.
House church this week will be at the Hauger’s home starting at 7pm. We will get back into the House Church Leader’s Guide. Please look over the section entitled Practices for House Churches. This week we will have an overview of each of these and the following weeks we will focus more specifically on each practice.
Remember, Plan A is always and option. Also, connecting with Jesus and spiritual formation takes both supernatural work and person effort. Challenge yourself to do something new this week to open yourself to hearing from the Holy Spirit.
