Gifted to Build Others Up
Hello Doxa Family,
It’s hard to believe we are entering into our ninth week together as a new church. I am becoming more and more encouraged and excited about our future together! It seems several of you were exhorted and built up by yesterday’s message (Being a Gift that Builds Others Up) as indicated by the number of folks who signed up to serve the body. Thanks for taking seriously the call to BE THE CHURCH! Remember, we don’t go to church – we are the church. Each of us has been designed by God and set free to be a gift to the church to both serve and equip others for more ministry. YOU are the ministers of Doxa Church!
If you didn’t get to join us for the teaching, please take some time to watch the message:
Talk it out:
If you would like to discuss the message with your family, friends or Missional Community, read Ephesians 4:1-16 and then talk through these questions:
- How should the way in which we have been called affect the manner of how we serve (4:1-6)?
- Jesus came to set each of us free to be a gift to the church. What might be keeping us from being free to serve and build up others?
- How is each one of us a gift to this group and to Doxa Church?
- How can we better serve and equip one another?
If you would like additional training watch video #15: “APEST in a Missional Community” here: https://vimeo.com/ondemand/howtoequipanmc2 (use the code: equip100)
Family Covenant Celebration:
As we continue to prepare for our Family Covenant Celebration on Sunday, March 29 at 10 am, please prayerfully consider your commitment to the Doxa family moving forward. Like Jim shared on Sunday, we are calling you to commit to Gather, Go, Give and Grow. Would you consider committing to do that with Doxa Church for the remainder of 2015?
May you both be blessed and be a blessing to others as you go about your week.
