ACTS: THE CHURCH ON MISSION
The Priorities of the Church
Sermon Slides – Click here
As the church grows,
new challenges will always arise
which must be faced with wisdom and prayer.
A growing church prioritizes the functions of ministry
by adapting the forms of ministry.
A ministry that is growing and healthy
allows its members to serve in their shape
to ensure spiritual growth and meeting practical needs.
Living on Mission:
The church of Jesus Christ, empowered by the Holy Spirit,
adapts and organizes the forms of ministry
to prioritize the functions of ministry.
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.
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.
Home Church Questions
• Read Acts 6:1-6.
• Is there anything new, interesting or memorable from today’s message?
• Is there an immediate application you know you need to make? How can your Home Church support you in your obedience to make this application?
• How have you seen the forms of ministry adapted over the years?
• What ministry challenges do you see as Fellowship grows?
• What functions of ministry are ones that must be prioritized no matter what else happens?
• Why are the Word of God and prayer two priorities the elders should not neglect?
• What are areas in the church which need attention? How can you help?

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.
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 hanging and putting out clothing, cleaning, putting out new inventory, and talking to customers.
