TRIMESTER 1 | 2024
SPIRITUAL GROWTH THEME: FLOURISHING
"Flourishing" can be understood as a state of thriving, prosperity, and overall well-being. The imagery in Psalm 1:3 of a tree planted by streams of water conveys the idea of stability, nourishment, and continuous growth. A person who delights in the teachings of the Lord is compared to such a tree, suggesting a life that bears fruit in due season and remains vibrant and resilient, not withering away. During this trimester, Pastor Terry will teach us how we can flourish in various aspects of life, guided by a close relationship with God and adherence to His principles.
SERIES 1: LAUNCHES JAN. 7TH
Pastor Terry will kick off the theme of flourishing on Sunday, January 7, as we will learn how to delight in God's wisdom, stay rooted in faith, embrace growth and align our actions with values to live a flourishing and purposeful life.
SERIES 2: LAUNCHES FEB. 18TH
Thriving in our vocation entails regarding work as a form of worship, imbuing each task with purpose and dedication. We should actively pursue continuous learning, refine our skills, promote collaboration, and approach challenges with a positive mindset. In this series, we will examine Scripture to discover God's original intent for how we're meant to allocate our time, reshaping how we view and engage in our work in a way that has impactful results.
SERIES 3: LAUNCHES APRIL 7TH
Embark on a transformative journey to flourish by digging deep into our discipleship. Forge a path of self-discovery, unearthing strengths and convictions. Delve into the richness of spiritual growth, cultivating a resilient foundation. As we navigate challenges, let the journey to dig deeper become a transformative experience, uncovering hidden potential and fostering a life that not only thrives personally but also positively impacts the world around you.
Orienting our entire way of life around the way of Jesus is the catalyst for our human flourishing. Some routines that have proven to be primarily essential for our spiritual growth are our formed habits around the Spiritual Practices, like scripture reading, engagement in weekly community within a small group, and gathering together weekly as a church to worship God.
Each Trimester, we curate a theme-specific Spiritual Growth Plan to help you flourish in each of these key experiences!
