As I have shared with you in the past, I realize that time is a precious commodity. In light of this, we want to use it as powerfully and relevantly as we can. It is in this spirit that I want to invite you to mark the morning of SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 24 off on your calendar for our annual First Church Vision Day. If you are not familiar with this day it is the ONE day each year that we gather as an entire church to better foster a culture that seeks transformation in Jesus Christ. If you are passionate about the vision of First Church, you will want to be there. In years past we have used this day for training or to hear from various ministry/staff leaders. This year I am incredibly excited to share with you that we have a very special surprise in store. Here is a brief description of our day together:
Do you know the ONE THING that Jesus told every one of us that we must do to be a faithful follower? Could you name the ONE THING that every thriving church does really well? At Vision Day this year, we are going to focus on this ONE THING. Come find out what it is! Don’t miss Vision Day on Feb 24. We are excited to welcome JR Briggs, a coach, consultant, teacher, and writer who has invested in kingdom leaders in over 23 states. J.R.’s passion is two-fold: to grow fruit on other people’s trees and to collaborate with others to create good kingdom mischief.
This day is open to EVERYONE connected with First Church. I believe you will be inspired, challenged, and encouraged in your own walk with Christ as well as what God is doing at First Church as a whole. I am personally asking you all to make this morning a priority because I believe it will be “that good.” Our day will start off at 8:30 a.m. with a continental breakfast and end at 1:30 p.m. after lunch. Both are free for those who register. We need folks to sign up by February 18. I am letting you know about this day this far in advance because I am hoping you can make arrangements to attend. (Child-care will not be provided so that our children’s leaders can take part in the day.) Days like this have an exponential effect on our culture and discipleship as followers of Jesus. Would you plan on joining us this day? I hope to see you there.
