Series Description

BLESS is a new approach to prayer and evangelism. It’s less about downloading information or memorizing scripts, and more about loving our neighbors well. It helps us get “unstuck” and practice evangelism more effortlessly. BLESS is an intentional pathway for persons of all ages who follow Jesus to become like Jesus and join the mission of Jesus.

God’s way of reaching and restoring the world has always been through blessing. These five missional practices make up the acronym BLESS and are a way to participate in the strategy God gave Abraham to reach the world. “And I will bless you…and you will be a blessing” (Genesis 12:2). As we engage these practices daily, we partner with God’s Spirit to bless those who do not know him.

Sermon Description: 

Meals weren't just a physical necessity for Jesus - they were a spiritual opportunity. Sharing the table in this life created an opportunity to invite someone to the eternal feast in God's kingdom. And we are invited to use the table to build genuine relationships and create spiritual opportunities.
