We set our minds to do the work, for the Lord has called us!
The time of planning and presenting is coming to an end and the time for beginning the task is upon us! In less than a week the “Core Group” at Central will begin to meet. My heart is very excited and I can hardly wait to welcome all the group together as one into our home. We have meet with them all separately over the past few weeks, but it will be an awesome moment to see them all together! God has given us a total of 15 adults to begin with, counting the kids we have a total of 29 in our “Core Group”. We yet have others praying about joining this group. Who knows what it will look like come January? Regardless of numbers, we are thrilled with the ones God has put on the team!
Here’s what the group will go through this fall:
Core Group Training Schedule
1. Teaching SOAPing (Discipleship Engine #1) September 8 & 15 2.Remove the Queen Week – September 22
3.Teaching Vision and Core Values – September 29 & October 6 4.The Mission of Christ and the Church – October 13 & 20 5.Mother Church Vision Week – October 27 6.Ec Week – November 3 7.Your Oikos – Concentric Circles – November 10 & 17 8.Teaching Discovery Bible Study (Discipleship Engine #2) – November 24 9.Relational Building and Networking November 24 – December 31 10.Small Groups Begin January 5 – February 9 (6 evangelical focus groups in a row)
We will be “SOAPing” through Acts both in the Fall and next Spring.
It’s a full agenda, but once we come to the end of the fall schedule we will be equipped to officially begin small group ministry. There will be other added sessions at a later time to expand on this initial training.
Pray for us that we can see fruit come from this group for the kingdom!
