January 8, 2017 – Jon Ritner
Traditionally at Ecclesia, the Sunday morning services examine a portion of God’s Word and invite us to apply the ideas to our lives as individuals and as a community. For our first series in 2017, we are going to flip that format. We are inviting Ecclesia each week to explore one passage of God’s word, through Community Group studies and personal devotional times. You and your groups are invited to share your observations, themes, and questions with Pastor Jon.
Then on Sunday morning when we gather together, Jon will use his message to recap the passage, respond to the community’s questions, and celebrate the common themes God has been revealing to each of us during the week. We will uncover together what elements are essential for a community of Jesus disciples to continue thriving, growing and flourishing in every dimension of life.
Passage to study this week: Philippians 1:1-11
