Worship Theme & Message for Sunday, October 14, 2018 

Today is the third week in a five-week series on the book, “Shift: Three Big Moves for the 21st Century Church” by Mark Tidsworth.  In this series, we will reflect on what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ, what does it mean to be a gathered community of disciples, and what does it mean to be a gathered community of disciples who join God on a mission in the world?

There is a difference in being an attractional church versus a missional church.  In an attractional church, God is found only at church.  Then the church does missions.  Therefore, the church has a mission to accomplish.  In a missional church, God is expansive. God preceded the church. God continues the mission God began long before the church was born.  The church is an instrument of God’s activity for bringing God’s reign on earth. The church is one example of God’s kingdom.  Together, the church participates in Missio Dei, meaning the mission of God.  – from “Making the Shift Field Guide”
