Your Faith Journey 39

Your Faith Journey

Connect & Grow in a Group – Life is better connected! We want to help you connect with others within the church and take steps on your faith journey. Sign up for an I Can Only Imagine small group through the church website at www.avonumc.com today! Groups will begin meeting to get to know one another and enjoy fellowship the week of August 25th through the 31st. Many of the I Can Only Imagine groups will take Labor Day week off (9/1-9/7), then begin diving into the video-based discussion sessions the week of September 8th. The series concludes the week of September 29th. If you are not part of a group that is walking through the series study, we encourage you to sign up ASAP to Connect & Grow in an I Can Only Imagine small group!
 
Invest in the DisconnectedYou have a family member, friend, co-worker, or neighbor who needs to hear and experience the I Can Only Imagine series with us in September, beginning on the 8th. Pray about who you are going to invite to join us for weekly worship services. Pray that God will prepare them to receive the invitation. Pray for God’s messages to be shared clearly through greeters, songs, scripture readings, sermons, recommended resources, and weekly experiences with us at AUMC. Rely upon the Holy Spirit to give you the right words, timing, and way to invite the person you know who needs to recall their past wounds, reorient their present identity, and reimagine their future. During the sermon series we will focus on Imagining a Loving Father, Imagining Forgiveness, Imagining Redemption, and Imagining Going Home. Perhaps the only thing separating your loved one from healing, hope, and the abundant life found in Christ is an invitation from you to help them get to Jesus. Who does God want you to invite?
