Fruitful Congregations

I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, then you will produce much fruit. Without me, you can’t do anything.

John 15:5 CEB

Each fall our church has taken a few weeks to remember who we are (a “garden” of Christian disciples) and what we’re called to do (empower our community to flourish). This year we will do this through a series of sermons, small group conversations and service opportunities based on the book Five Practices of Fruitful Congregations by Robert Schnase. Check out the theme and scripture for each week’s sermon below, keep an eye out for small group opportunities, and pick up a copy of one of Schnase’s books on the subject in our office or on your favorite bookstore.

I’m grateful to share life on the vine with you!
