Christ Church’s goal for 2016 is for every member to lead someone through the three steps of our disciple-making process. I know several of you are well on your way because our average attendance is growing and because you introduce me to your friends on Sundays!

In the coming weeks, I’ll be asking some things of you and offering you some things to help with our goal. First, what I ask of you is to consider what needs to change at Christ Church to accommodate more people. One change already made to make room for people was relocating coffee time from the back of Brandt Hall and into Fellowship Hall. What will help newcomers find what they need at Christ Church? What can we plan to make it easier for you to invite people?

What I’ll be offering is a sermon series, beginning Easter Sunday, called “Share.” Just like when you find something on-line that is interesting to you and you can share it with your friends, you can also share your faith with your friends as Jesus makes a difference in your life. We are going to prepare you to tell your story, to share your faith in a way that doesn’t threaten you or the person with whom you are sharing.

My prayers are with you, and I hope yours are with me, as we invite new people into what God is doing at Christ Church. I pray that they, and you, are as blessed by participating at Christ Church as I am!
