Devoted: Church Reimagined
August 4 - 25 | Downers Grove
A Vision For Becoming a Devoted Community: (Acts 2 remix)
They devoted themselves to the Scriptures, to genuine community, to gathering around tables, and to prayer.
God was powerfully moving through their generous service.
Their friends, families, and communities noticed their authentic worship and life-changing love.
And God deepened and grew HIS church every day.
Week 1 | Aug. 4
Devoted to Scripture
When God’s people commit to read, memorize, and reflect on God’s words they find themselves transformed by His words. Take the Devoted Bible Challenge this next month by following the reading plan and sharing your thoughts to the following questions with one another.
READING PLAN: One chapter per day for 30 days.
What am I learning?
How am I challenged?
do I have?
How should I respond?
Psalm 16, 23, 51, 139
Romans 5, 8, 12
1 John 1-5
Week 2 | Aug. 11
Devoted to Meals
Meals have been given to us by God for more than eating...they are for community. Community Dinners are one way we will devote ourselves to building fellowship with one another and extending invitations to our friends and families to join us.
