Thursday evenings; Jan 18, Feb 1, 15, Mar 1; 6:30-9pm, UC-105
What will God do through us when we pursue loving obedience to Jesus as seriously as we take adding to our knowledge? What does it do for us when we learn to share our testimony and the gospel with faith and confidence and become consistent in praying for lost family and friends?
Make your understanding of DMM (Disciple Making Movements) more practical with this four-session workshop. These four sessions will walk you through next steps in reaching the unreached in your own communities.
  • January 18th – Vision: When we begin the process of fulfilling the Great Commission, we must begin with the idea of vision.
  • February 1st – Pray: Prayer does not equip us for the greater work, prayer is the greater work.
  • February 15th – Go: Engaging the harvest, living spiritually conspicuous lives. International flight not required.
  • March 1st – Disciple / Multiply: The goal of discipleship is likeness to Christ.

Time and Location:  Thursday evenings, 6:30 – 9:00 pm.  Bellevue Presbyterian Church, Room UC-105 (Upper Campus)

 Workshops facilitated by Marc & Lisa Bauman (Overlake Christian Church) and Margie Gilchrist (Bellevue Presbyterian Church).  If interested, please contactlisafb@hotmail.com or margie.gilchrist@perspectives.org.

Room: Welcome Room

Christ & Culture Small Group meets Tuesdays at 6:45 in the Welcome Room.

Starting with Abraham Kuyper: Modern Calvinist, Christian Democrat by James Bratt on January 23.

It is a book of general interest to our congregation since it explores the life of a Christian (and even Calvinist) politician who was Prime Minister of The Netherlands, a pluralistic society, as well as a theologian.  His life is a great model for those of us choosing to be active citizens in our own country.

 

The Cascade Fellows program is one reflection of his work.

BelPres partners with Children of the Nations, following best practices on international food aid. Mokpangumba is home to about 300 families, and 75% of the residents are women and children. The meals we pack will help families who are unable to grow enough food to feed their children. To read more about COTN’s work in Mokpangumba, click here.
