WEEKLY REFLECTIONS
 
VISION SUNDAY
What we are called to do as a church is unchanging.  We are called by Christ to make disciples of all nations, to baptize them and to teach them all things we have been commanded to know ourselves.  The Great Commission to carry the gospel and make disciples has been an unchanging mission of the church since Jesus ascended into heaven.  This Sunday morning, we will be reminded about the power of that calling, and the need for that calling in our world.  Chances are, if you’ve been a follower of Christ for any length of time, you’ve heard several messages about that very topic.

What you will also hear this Sunday, in response to that Great Commission and mission of the church, is the unique vision of how God is calling us as a church to use our gifts, talents, resources, relationships and opportunities to carry out the mission.  Each church carries out the Great Commission in a slightly different way.  Based on the leadership of the Holy Spirit, God assembles different people at different times with different abilities to uniquely partner with Him to win lost souls and disciple them. Through prayer and conversations with the deacons, Pastor Aaron and I are excited to share what God has placed on our hearts as initiatives for the future of CBC!  I want you to join us in prayer leading up to Sunday, and then prayerfully consider how you can partner with that vision of reaching people and making disciples.  God has some amazing days ahead of us, and I’m thankful to be part of this wonderful church family!

Pastor Randy Johnson
