The Bethel Serving Revolution
January 24, 2021
Today Pastor Ben Kington shares a message to explain the serving revolution challenge.
1. What are we trying to avoid?
-Where the past becomes the hero.
-A refutation to look like the community.
-Where the budget is all spent inwardly.
-Where the great commission becomes the great omission.
-The preference driven church.
-Where pastoral tenure decreases.
-Where the church rarely prays together.
-Where the church has no purpose.
-Where we obsess over the facilities.
-Where we embrace sidetracks.
2. What of these areas will the serving revolution address?
-It should stop slow erosion because worshippers will be putting down roots through engagement.
-We will be starting a new adventure to point to instead of relying on a victory 20 years ago.
-As we serve all types we will attract all types.
-As the Lord opens doors we will see souls saved.
-As we serve new challenges will arise that need finances and prayers.
-Our purpose will be undeniable as a result of serving our community.
3. What is the 7th going to look like?
-I’m committing today till May 8th to add 2 hours serving a week to my regular schedule.
-I’m going to specifically serve in this area. -I would like more direction in this area.
-I’m praying diligently for our church to connect with our community in such a way that the Gospel will flourish as a result of Gods people entering into serving opportunities with the community.
Will you join the challenge on February 7th?
