MESSAGE NOTES


The Great Commission
Matt 28:16-20
Geoff Folland, CRU - Australia

The Big Idea: We should be committed to helping fulfill the Great Commission.

  • It is the natural result of following Jesus.
  • It spells out the process of making disciples (baptize, teach to obey and go) that we can follow.

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL

We are praising God for a great week at VBS! We also want to thank all our amazing volunteers who made this week possible, and all the kids who came. We had approximately 150 children attending and are excited to hear from some of them during our services today. A big shout out to Debbie Stewart and Meredith Zouski for their fantastic leadership.


LIVE IT OUT

Live It Out is a strategic initiative toward fulfilling a vision that every person in our community would experience the love of God in a practical way through Aspen Ridge Church. This involves building and mobilizing our small group network toward service projects in our community. One of our aims is to hire a “Director of Small Groups” who would continue to build our small group ministry. Norm Lewis is the chairman of this search team with Pastor Jeff and Michelle Force. We have received several applications for this position. We covet your prayers as we begin to identify those who may be the best fit for this important ministry.
