Time to Get Practical!

You’ve heard the phrase, “Practice what you preach.” In Wellspring we take this very seriously. Jesus told His followers to make more followers, immersing them in the Triune God and training them to demonstrate God-like love. Training involves doing, right?

Did you ever take a science class that required lab groups? I always thought I’d be a doctor someday, so in high school and college I spent a lot of time in lab classes with other people. The purpose of lab was to see, touch, experience, and practice all of the things you learned through books and lectures. In Wellspring we intentionally plan times of breaking into Lab Groups. 

This Sunday, September 6th, instead of hearing a message, we’re going to break into smaller groups. A leader will facilitate each group as we discuss the previous lesson (The Three Generation Cycle) and how it impacted our lives. Also, each group will take time to edify, encourage, and comfort one another. After that we’ll come back together to hear testimonies from the Lab Groups and we’ll worship the Lord together.

These are fun, life-giving times of interaction. If you’d like to come but you’re shy about sharing, don’t worry. We don’t make anyone share. But it’s like going to a great pool party. It won’t be long before you’ll want to jump in and play in the joyful celebration. And it’s safe. Our vision for developing leaders is like training lifeguards to protect and safely help each person to go a little deeper in the Living Waters.

His love is better than life!
