Series Big Idea
“‘Come, follow me,’ Jesus said…” -Mark 1:17
Jesus extends an invitation to every person…an invitation to a life-changing relationship. He wants to make our lives better and make us better at life. He wants to give hope and a future. He longs for every single person to find their way back to him. We want to be a community of people who are on mission together so that more and more people accept Jesus’ invitation and find their way back to God.
We don’t invite people to fill up auditoriums. We invite people because Jesus has extended an invitation. We invite people because Jesus makes our lives better and makes us better at life. We invite people to help them find their way back to God.
This series is intended to motivate and equip people to invite their friends, family members, neighbors, and co-workers to church.
