    New Places for New People

    Effectively creating new places for new people is at the heart of our mission as a church. It comes directly from the commission Jesus gave his disciples “go out and train everyone you meet, far and near, in this way of life, marking them by baptism in the threefold name: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Then instruct them in the practice of all I have commanded you. I’ll be with you as you do this, day after day after day, right up to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:19-20, The Message) What are the new places we can create inside and outside the church to develop relationships with new people? How does scripture guide us in that process? How is God seeking to do a new thing in our midst? The Good News of Jesus Christ is meant to be shared. Our focus in this series is to seek how God is leading us as disciples to be that connectional component - New Places for New People.

    Here you will find tools to plan a 7-week sermon series on “New Places for New People” including weekly themes, key scriptures, sermon building points and weekly sample worship order.
