Taken from www.mycircletraining.com:
What would it look like if every follower of Christ in a local congregation realized that God has placed them in the lives they live in, around the people they live with, for a purpose?
What would it look like if Christ-followers also realized that purpose was to give those same people an opportunity to see the Gospel in action, to lovingly proclaim its message and give them a chance to respond?
The heart behind the MyCircle Initiative is to help equip the people of God to participate in God’s redemptive mission within the context of their daily lives and relationships, by helping them understand how to:
- Identify the network of relationships in the midst of which God has placed them; this is their circle.
- Meaningfully engage their circle through prayer and a tangible Gospel presence.
- Share their grace story as well as proclaim the Gospel to the people in their circle.
Whether a person is a new believer or a life-long follower, MyCircle will help equip them by giving practical ways to live a life of mission and understand the theology behind it, all within an ongoing framework of accountability, encouragement, and prayer. Participants will have their hearts moved, minds expanded and wills challenged to not be satisfied with missional inactivity.
This is an opportunity to learn how to share your faith with those in our community and we would like to invite you all to participate with us. This class will be taking place on May 10 from 7-9 and May 11 from 9-noon at the Ministry Center. Thad Bergmeier will be teaching the class. There is no cost to the class but we would like to know how many to plan for so please sign-up for the class. You can do that on the website or there is a sign-up sheet in the hallway at church on Sunday mornings.
