ENCS Announcements

for the week of 03/14/23

Hey Every Nation Family,

This past Sunday, you got the chance to hear some of the key priorities that we are focusing on this year to help us continue to honor God and make disciples of Jesus who love well.  

These are the areas of focus:
  1. Refilling our elder council - We currently have 2 candidates saying yes to serve our church family for the next 3 years in this role. Jake Ferrari and Peter Kim. We are also in talks with a few others to discern either current or future involvement. Please be in prayer for them and us as we finalize our process in the next couple of weeks. 
  2. Re-establishing our discipleship path - This year you have opportunities for coffee conversations, One2One discipleship, and some of our core courses like Emotionally Healthy Spirituality are back in action. Stay tuned for more opportunities to grow spiritually and relationally.
  3. Re-designing our group and community life - We are excited to have a group development team that will be working together to over the course of this year to explore more faithful ways for you to connect relationally, grow spiritually, and be a family on mission. It is our hope to create Acts 2 community in our homes throughout our church and across the city in the months and years to come. Part of this design includes community meals which we have begun.  We encourage everyone to get to know one another’s stories and sign up to host or attend a community meal.
  4. Establish the Hub as our base of ministry - We have been approved for a 5-year lease with option to extend and to incorporate 2 additional units to our current space. This will ensure that we can bring everything under one roof, hosting worship gatherings, kids ministry, trainings, prayer, and more. Please be in prayer for us as we finalize the new lease, and look to make renovations to that we can be all in one place again as one church family.  

We will keep you to date as things progress.

We love you and are praying with you for our future.
