This Sunday night, we will be having a panel discussion on what it looks like to be moved to mission in our day-to-day lives! So, in the next few days, we want to introduce you to our panelists! These wonderful people are Randy and Jackie Langley. They intentionally share the love of Jesus with their generosity, selfless living, creativity, and whimsy! Their missional living has been displayed through their mission work in Africa, their parenting four very missional kids, and their desire to serve and spread joy around the Treasure Valley! Oh, and they have a refurbished double decker bus that they drive around town. How cool is that?! We can’t wait for you to meet Randy and Jackie this Sunday!!
Happy Monday! Caption this 👆Best caption gets a @flyingmcoffeegarage gift card!
Last night, we kicked off a new series focusing on living on mission! God is inviting us to be a part of the restoration He is bringing about in the world! So, this Wednesday we are going to pray over our community and align ourselves with the heart of God for our city! We are meeting at Encounter Church at 7pm and will go from there! Please dress for the weather! ALSO, we will be having Tuesday morning prayer as usual in the morning! We hope to see you at one (or both) of these prayer opportunities this week!
