My next step…

We have a new feature on the back of our “connection card” that people fill out each week.  It’s a simple box where people can write their next steps.  It’s huge because I think coming Sunday mornings without a next step for life makes for a lot of fat, lazy church-goers instead of vibrant Christ-followers.

A lot of times we suggest a specific next step from the theme or the message, but I’m finding people are writing things from their heart about their own journeys also.

Here’s a couple I got from Sunday (I’ll leave them anonymous here)..

      …bring my family to suncrest.  Involve my sister in youth group.

      …continue to re-establish my relationship with Jesus and find comfort in this church.

When I get these every week, they become my focused prayer list.  They are the everyday stories of our larger mission…to be used by God to change lives.
