Five Practices of Fruitful Congregations

Throughout the summer, we are focusing 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:

1.      Radical hospitality;

2.      Passionate worship;

3.      Intentional faith development;

4.      Risk-taking mission and service; and

5.      Extravagant generosity. 

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 bear fruit. 

Antioch Administrative Board: Cultivating Fruitfulness!

We will have a special administrative board meeting on Tuesday, July 13th at 7:00 PM to establish the Growth Team, decide when and how often the team will meet, and discuss using money from a generous donation to the church to fund our quest for fruitfulness.  This meeting is open to anyone who is interested in being a part of the Growth Team, so please come!

All Hand’s on Deck!

We have partnered with The Shepherd’s Inn (a shelter working to help homeless families get off the streets) in South Hill to construct and possibly fence-in a carport type shelter that will help them   provide a good, safe space for the children to play.  Mark your calendars for Saturday, July 17th.  We will meet at Antioch at 8:00 AM and travel to South Hill together.  Please talk with Walter Moseley if you can come or have questions!
