Our SUMMER SEEKING opportunities are ways of Seeking God, Seeking Growth and Seeking Good, organically, and intentionally! We are feeling the effects of not gathering, and with any summer comes some slowing down of scheduled programs and activities. So we're encouraging you to make the most of a summer seeking opportunity by looking for someone else to do one anothering with.
Mark Sayer's Reappearing Church is a book that our board and staff are about to begin reading.
Check out the video below to catch some of the heart of the book and author.
FLEFC will purchase books and ask you help us cover with a $10 donation per copy.
(If you want to read it but cannot make a donation, we will happily give it to you!)
Contact us at [email protected] if you want to a copy for yourself (and others)!
Whether summer is a great time for you to read right through a book, or you start off reading with the plan to continue into the Fall, we invite you to join us
From the Book
What if what looks like decline in the church is actually the beginning of a spiritual reawakening?
For decades, we Westerners set our hopes on technology, politics, and the appearance of peace. We wanted to believe we were headed somewhere better; that progress was happening. But now as our technology ensnares and isolates us, our politics threaten to tear us apart, and mass violence becomes alarmingly normative, people are understandably distressed.
But throughout history these periods of decline traditionally precede powerful spiritual renewal and even revival. What if all the bad news in this world is actually good news for the church?
Discover why there's reason to be wildly hopeful and how to prepare yourself and your church to be a part of renewal now and in the future.
Reappearing Church and One Anothering:
The book encourages small group interaction. It includes questions and suggestions for meeting.
Ask someone about reading it with you and/or let us know you are reading it so we can put you in touch with others who are doing the same!
