This is an exciting time to be involved in God’s work in Dundas and Telopea and particularly God’s work through our church. We have committed ourselves to the God honouring vision of seeing at least 150 people coming to new life in Jesus over the next five years and reaching over 9000 people in our local community with the love of Jesus through our activities.
We are still only at the start of seeing this vision become a reality. This month our sermon series is going to unpack the part we can play in the vision of our church as we explore five priorities from the Bible that will shape our part in God’s mission in Dundas and Telopea. These priorities are:
- Gathering God’s people around his word
- Passing the gospel on to the next generation
- Stirring our hearts for those who are lost without Jesus
- Changing to reach our neighbourhood
- Helping people take the next step in their relationship with God.
These mission priorities will help us focus our prayers, organise our resources and combine our efforts as we play our part by prayer and proclamation in God’s work of bringing people to new life and continual growth in Christ.
I hope that you will commit to being in church every weekend through August as we think about these priorities together. This would also be a good month to contact friends who have drifted from church and encourage them to come and reconnect with us.
