CALL TO WORSHIP
Together, we gather to be present to the God who is already present to us.
However you are joining us, we encourage you to participate in the work of God today as He speaks and leads us. Wherever you are, God is already present and at work all around us. Let’s join Him!
And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
Ephesians 3:17b-19 NIV
MINISTRY PARTNER HIGHLIGHT
LIVE IT OUT TOGETHER
We seek to share a common way of life – a shared journey into the life of Jesus. We do so through 3 discipleship pathways: Communion, Community, and Co-Mission. Learn more at restorationlex.com/pathways!
Abide With Jesus
We never learn to love in isolation. This week, do a community inventory in your life. Who are you walking with in your faith journey? If you don’t have any intentional community, what are the obstacles in your way? If you are already in some form of community, how might God be stirring your relationships to deepen and grow?
Be Present To One Another
Discuss with your Community Group or friends this week the following questions: 1. Read Ephesians 3:17-19 together. We experience the fullness of God’s love together – not in isolation. How have you seen God’s love in others in your community in a way that you wouldn’t have on your own? 2. In Colossians 3, Paul encourages the Church to love through bearing the burdens of others. Share a time when someone stood under the weight of life with you and helped you make it through.
Join God’s Restoring Work
Community begins and ends with hospitality. The way we welcome others is a direct reflection of the heart of Christ! This week, make room for someone’s story through an act of hospitality over a meal, coffee, or a walk at the park.
