Instead of simply going to church, imagine if you truly felt a part of this church body, intimately connected to what is happening here.
To achieve this goal in years past, we have gathered toward the end of the year to cast vision with a one-word summary of what we felt God was calling us to do (i.e. 2019: FEARLESS). Our people came together at these events to worship, pray, and get better connected to the stream of what God was doing. Although these were beautiful evenings that created some direction, the problem came when that connectedness faded two months later.
In lieu of creating another singular vision casting event for 2020 to connect and communicate with the people of Cobblestone, we have decided to host Family Dinners every other month. In January, March, May, July, September, and November of 2020, members will gather to BE the church in biblical ways:
*Gathering before the Lord for encouragement, prayer, discipline and information
*Eating together for fellowship and the Lord’s Supper (communion)
*Sharing needs and issues firsthand
*Looking at ways God might be leading members to step up in ministry
*Spending time submitting ourselves to the Lord through prayer
*Growing together in a level of connectedness that honors God
