ACTS: THE CHURCH ON MISSION
Some Reflections on Church Growth
Sermon Slides – Click here
God, for His own glory, gives the increase.
(1 Corinthians 3:5-9)
Jesus gifted leaders in the church
to equip people to walk in Christlikeness.
The church, full of imperfect people,
becomes an attractive community of prayer and care.
Living on Mission:
The church of Jesus Christ, empowered by the Holy Spirit,
is transformed into a community of disciples by the Word of God.

This Week’s Growth Guide
God’s Word is both central and critical to your spiritual growth.
We invite you to utilize the Growth Guide during the week to further your application of the Truth from the message.
- Monday – 1 Corinthians 3:1-23
- Tuesday – Ephesians 4:1-10
- Wednesday – Ephesians 4:11-16
- Thursday – Ephesians 4:17-32
- Friday – Acts 6:8-15
Our Home Churches meet weekly to facilitate quicker relational depth, study the same passage taught Sunday to help apply Scripture in the context of community, and pray with one another. Home Church helps our body seek God’s best for one another.

This is a fun event for girls (ages 5th-12th grade) and their dads. We are asking each father to start the evening by taking your daughter(s) on a special date. Then join us at the Renewal Ranch Restoration Center for an evening of dancing with great music, both D.J. and a band providing current music with a coach for “social dancing”. Bring (and wear) your own mask or one will be available for you. This will be a great evening to show your daughter what to expect and how to be treated on a date. Cost is $5 per lady with a maximum of $15 per family. Register at fellowshipconway.org/register.
Discipleship 101 | February 25 | 6-8:00 p.m.
Join us for the next Discipleship 101 training Monday, February 25th, from 6-8pm. We will be studying spiritual disciplines. God wants us all to know Him deeply and I believe that spiritual disciplines are one of the avenues God uses to draw His people into deeper understanding, deeper knowledge, and ultimately deeper relationship with Himself. To register email Michael at firstname.lastname@example.org. Child care provided by RSVP to Shanna at email@example.com.
IFO Conversation Club
Would you like to join IFO weekly to help internationals practice conversational English with you and other Americans? Conversation Club meets for six weeks at the beginning of each semester. This event will help the students learn, practice, and develop good conversational English skills. They will also learn the meaning and use of American idioms, just for fun. An added bonus is that we serve a great meal each week before we break into discussion groups. However, the most valuable part of Conversation Club is connecting with others and building meaningful cross-cultural, forever friendships!
The Go Store is in need of daily volunteers to help with various tasks like cleaning, putting out new inventory, and talking to customers.
