It’s Monday Again

It was joy yesterday to be with our Connection family to lead in the Pastoral Installation of Luke (Breanne) Anderson. Church attendance was the highest it has been post-COVID. The Anderson family is also in an exciting transition at home as Breanne is expecting their third child in November!

Speaking of new life, there’s something in the water these days on the South Shore. Over the past month, our churches from Shelburne through Digby have celebrated 28 Believer’s Baptisms – PTL!

Nackawic (Ryan Farrell) held its 18th annual Well Walk yesterday to raise awareness and funds for a deep borehole well in Sierra Leone through World Hope International Canada.World Hope Executive Director Tanya Nace shared, “The commitment and energy of this congregation continue to amaze me. Ryan Farrell is an amazing leader. It was a treat to have Carl and Evelyn Brewer attend and a joy to join 33 others to walk for water. 81 people attended the gospel concert and church service – their first service all together outdoors on a beautiful fall day!”

Excellent preparation continued this week for Phase Two of our 2025 Values-Driven Vision. Full details will be unpacked in our January DS Dialog meetings. I am so grateful for the insightful leadership of Jon Wiest as he is shaping this collaborative co-invention effort alongside our Executive Director Tami Mutch-Ketch and Director of Kingswood Extended, Erik Ireland.Phase One has been a call to Renew Discipleship Pathways. Phase Two is a call to deploy the Kingdom force of a healthy discipleship process – to Refocus Pathway Ramps. What are the deployment ramps we need to intentionally provide for disciples to become disciple-makers?

Points to Ponder
  • How can we invite people to ask – maybe I’m not only a disciple-maker, maybe I’m a pioneering leader? (Jon Wiest)
  • We’re not here to reach our potential, we’re here to fulfill our calling. (Larry Osborne)
  • God isn’t interested in saving the Church, He is interested in spending the Church to save the world. (Brent Ingersoll)

What if COVID-19 is the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity
for leaders to think more strategically
about doing church?
(Will Mancini)
Another great resource to serve the church has been recently developed by our very own Pete Benson. A three-part video series specifically addressing the “COVID Crisis and Your Personal Finances” is freely shared for your personal use and for use within your church as you seek to empower and disciple your congregation in this critical area. CLICK HERE to access the three videos. A 10-minute preview of Part One will be sure to convince you to make use of this valuable resource with your church family.
