I do hope by now that you've heard a lot about this! Simply Jesus is our all-church 2019 campaign that I'd love you to be fully involved in. Here are 5 things we can be doing:
1) Be part of a Sunday service each week so that you catch the whole series. We're running the series at 9.30am, 11.15am & 6.30pm (The Gathering), and also across all Youth & Young Vineyard groups. This series really is for everyone!
2) Be part of a Simply Jesus small group - either an existing group or a new group - there are special videos & resources that will only be available through small groups
3) Invite someone to come to a Sunday service with you, someone who doesn't normally do church. Be expectant that they would meet Jesus for themselves.
4) Pray for the series, that our church & our communities would be deeply impacted by Jesus
5) Read through a gospel in parallel to the series. The "Lent for Everyone" series by Tom Wright is an excellent devotional resource - details HERE
Please don't miss out on going deeper with Jesus because it's all about Him. Simply Jesus.
There's lots of other exciting things going on in the lead up to Easter. Please read on and click on links to read more.
