REFLECT the image of Christ Christ challenges us to be imitators of Him, so that we might REFLECT the glory of the Lord. Stop and think about that… Seriously, what does that even look like? REFLECT is a verb meaning to cast back; to give back or show an image of. So I ask myself, what… Continue reading Etch Values: From the Etch Team, Part 3

That is the purpose of Etch. It’s our new/old way of doing ministry… TOGETHER! Etch is intergenerational. It’s a time for all ages to interact with one common purpose: Discipleship. Together, we’ll share stories of how God interacts with us in our everyday lives and pass on his truths to all generations.
When you arrive on Wednesday evening, there will be a meal to kick off the evening and tables for us to meet and enjoy a few moments in the week together. You will see families, friends, children, adults, and all in between. You’ll witness the body of Christ investing in each other’s lives.
The evening will be focused on experiencing discipleship. Through drama, video, music, conversation, and so much more our aim is to put the gospel in the hands of Christ’s followers and allow them to pass it on to those around them.

It… Continue reading Practicing Your Serve
