Sunday, September 25 | What Does Cheviot UMC’s Re-Build Look Like?
Goal #1: Create a Church-Wide Plan for Multi-Generational Ministry
Way back in the book of Numbers, we learn a universal truth about people: When faced with opportunities to move into new places with new faces, no matter how appealing those places seem, we are often hesitant to go forward. The story of the Israel’s reluctance to enter the Promised Land is an example of what happens when fear takes over faith. But this story shows that no matter how reluctant we are, God always has a plan for the future of His people.

Goal #2: Engage in intentional community connections
As the Israelites moved through the desert on their way to the Promised Land, God saw the need for a tent of worship to be built that would move with them. Today, as God is calling us to “go out” to reach new faces and places, God is creating moveable churches in every community. Today, the Fresh Expressions movement is the answer to both strengthening our existing churches and creating a moveable church that reaches the next generation.

Goal #3: Spiritual Growth within the Church
God’s people have not always had a love affair with God’s Word. During the reign of the Kings of Israel, the Book of the Law was all but lost as the people strayed to other gods and pagan forms or worship. During the reign of King Josiah, the Book of the Law was accidentally discovered in the back room of the temple. What the people did when it was found is an important lesson for us today.
Scripture: 2 Kings 23:1-3

Growing Through the Seasons of Life
Every life experiences seasons of change. And although these changes are often predictable, we can still feel unprepared and alone—as if we are the only ones experiencing them. But the truth is, God is with us in all the seasons of life. When we walk with Him and with each other through the changes that we face, we can have victory in every season. During this 3-week series, we will travel together through a Season of Loneliness, a Season of Loss and a Season of Waiting.
Tree Stump Faith: How to Stay Rooted in Midst of Uncertainty
Have you ever tried to remove a tree stump by yourself? It’s literally impossible to do without a stump grinder. Even then, the remnants of the stump can remain in the ground for years. God wants our faith to be like an old tree stump-- So strongly rooted that nothing can remove it from us. He has given us the book of Ephesians to grow immovable faith.
God's Roadmap for a Healthy Church
Just before going to the cross, Jesus prays to the Father for his disciples. “That they may be one as we are One.” And yet, today, churches, denominations, and Christians are more divided than ever. How do we find the unity that Christ prayed for? What is the road map? Over the next 6 weeks, we will plot the course to Unity. Our first stop on the trip is to learn the Source of our Unity: Christ.
