Family Forward

We just finished the Best Summer Ever. I actually believe it. It was a unique summer, but as we move into this fall we are fully embracing the momentum from the summer and bringing it with us into a season we’re calling FAMILY FORWARD.

Here are a couple of ways we are encouraging our church family to champion the FAMILY FORWARD spirit this fall:

Be Connected. 

Summer is a time for families to get away, relax, and enjoy some time off. Now that autumn is making its grand appearance and routine is kicking into full gear, make the decision to stay connected to your church family. Be present! Your presence matters — when you show up, you never know what God is going to do IN you that weekend and THROUGH you to encourage someone else. Our expectations are high for our church family this fall and all that God has planned! 

Be a Bringer.

The fall season is a great time to bring someone with you to church. We are having fun with our church family over the next few months, both on weekends and different events during the week. Between the Family Forward series and our church-wide Human Trafficking Awareness Walk*, we’re ready to not only have a good time but also make a difference together! 

"There are people in our neighborhoods, workplaces, and schools who are looking for Jesus!"

There are people in our neighborhoods, workplaces, and schools who are looking for Jesus! You and I have the opportunity to get the word out about who He is and what He’s doing in our lives everywhere we go. We can help people move their lives forward as we get closer to the end of another calendar year.

Let’s join together and move FAMILY FORWARD this fall!


* Human Trafficking Awareness Walk: We are partnering with A21 Campaign and their global walk they do every year on October 19th in Bellevue, WA. Email to get more info!
