Five Practices of Fruitful Congregations

As we begin the summer, we are starting a new season at Antioch and Williams as well — a season of examining our fruitfulness as churches.  Throughout the summer, we will focus on five practices we can do as a church to help us live out God's mission for us more fully.  We will explore in depth the following five practices:

3.      Intentional faith development;

4.      Risk-taking mission and service; and

5.      Extravagant generosity. 

In addition to attending Sunday morning worship and learning more about each week's focus, I hope every one of you will take a few minutes each day to work through our special editions of the  Transformation Journal concerning cultivating fruitfulness. 

Once we have concluded the sermon series, we will gather outside of worship in order to discern how we want to live out these five practices in our churches.  It is time for us to decide how to be the people of God in practical, authentic, and relevant terms in order to cultivate optimal circumstances for becoming more healthy as a community, bearing fruit, and reaching out to those in need around us.  For more information, check out www.fivepractices.org.
