Own the Vision- Gather & Scatter (part 1)

BIG IDEA- GATHER & SCATTER


“Deconstruction is only helpful if it is followed by something that is better. And this I think is the great tragedy of Gen X or Millennial (Gen Z) disenfranchised, deconstructionist church people. Are you building something that is even better? And the answer most of the time is no.” 

John Michael Cormer, Pastor of Bridgetown Church, Portland, OR. 

THE GATHERING IS ESSENTIAL


I Cor 12-14 

  • Women praying in public gatherings
  • Taking communion in gatherings
  • Exercising spiritual gifts in gatherings
  • Call for orderly process to worship gatherings
  • Being prepared for unbelievers to walk into their gatherings
  • Singing songs of praise in gatherings
  • The Word of God being proclaimed in gatherings


Hebrews 10:23-25 (NLT)

“Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise. Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.”


“The more casual the church attendance, in all likelihood, the more casual the devotion. Think about it. If someone used to be fully engaged in the mission (serving, inviting friends, giving, attending and in group), and now they’re doing none of those things and showing up once every two months, do you usually discover that they are closer to God than they were before, or that they’ve drifted further away from God? In my experience, that is almost always a sign of drift.” Carey Nieuwhof, Pastor of Connexus Church, Ontario Canada.
