Dear Cypress Streeters, I'm praying that God will prepare some breakthroughs in your faith over the next 8 weeks and that He will better equip you through this study for the Jesus-way of life to which He has called you!
Most of you have ordered and received Study Guides (if you weren't able to get yours on Sunday, you can swing by & pick yours up from the office). I want to encourage you to set aside 5 sessions, 15-20 minutes each, to sit down with that study guide and work through the first week: Setting the Stage. This will prepare you for where we're going on Sunday, both in our worship gathering and in our Circles.
If you're not working through the Study Guide, I would simply encourage you to spend time in prayer--both for what God might want to do in your life and certainly that He will use this to help others go deeper with their faith, as well.
I'm excited to begin this journey with you fresh off our Church on a Mission conversation during which so many of us have committed ourselves to prayer, fasting, inviting, and giving in hopes that we might learn to go deeper and reach farther by the power of God at work in us!
Our conversation over the past two weeks, both in "circles & rows," has centered around this idea of intentionally living as a Church on a Mission. We believe that "When God partners with people, small beginnings can yield big results!" Therefore, we are committing ourselves to "Go Deeper & Reach Farther!"
If you missed either of these pivotal messages, the best way to catch up is through our podcast which you can access through our website: https://cypressstreet.org/listen
If you didn't get to fill out a Church on a Mission Commitment Card yesterday, you can do so via this ONLINE SURVEY.
I'm so excited to see what God does as we focus our prayers and our energies on the mission Jesus gave us to make disciples!
