Hey Pursuit family! We hope you are enjoying these social media challenges as much as we are enjoying seeing you being the church to our community. This week we would like to introduce you to our #WALKITOUTchallenge Did you know that God has created you ON purpose, For a purpose? He has you right where you are for specific purpose— to bring Him glory. How can you serve those that God specifically has placed in your life for this season? Here are some ideas to get you thinking: >>Head to lunch or coffee with a colleague. Take time to hear them and what is going on in their life. >>Write a note of encouragement to someone who may need it. >>Take a moment to send that text or call that person God has laid on your heart that you have been meaning to connect with. Share some of your favorite moments with this challenge with us in the COMMENTS below! #WALKITOUTchallenge #GrowNDchallenges
We give because God gave first! He gave us the most important resource we would ever need—-His Son. This gift made us rich in every way. Pastor Tom reminded us that generosity is something for ALL followers of Jesus, and that giving is a tangible way to demonstrate our faith in God. When those around see the way we give to other from our limited resources or abundance they see Christ at work in their lives providing for their spiritual and physical needs. What about you? Do you have a story to share about how God demonstrated His love to you through others being generous? We’d love to hear about it. Comment below.
This week, we talked about generosity. Christ was the U L T I M A T E model of living generously. His generous living was demonstrated in his whole life—the way he gave of his TIME, MONEY, and RESOURCES. This weeks social media challenge is our #PAYITFORWARDchallenge In this challenge we would love to see the ways you are living generously. >> Leave a gift card at a local gas station, coffee shop, fast-food restaurant, retail store >> Give away stuff for free on a garage sale site, women’s shelter, food pantry. >> Help a friend mow their lawn, decorate for fall, get their car washed, run kids to events You get the idea! Don’t forget to post below to help encourage others to give generosity a try. We love to see you being the church. #GrowNDchallenges #payitforwardchallenge
#INVITE CHALLENGE // Everyone enjoys an invitation to be a part. God's got a BIG STORY for you, as a person, and for us, as a church. This week we are challenging you to invite someone to be part of our story here at The Pursuit. >> Grab one of our invite cards and use a creative way to invite people you encounter: grocery store clerk, boss, teacher, yard guy, nail teach, hair stylist, etc. SEND a personal invite on your social media to a friend or post on your feed an invite to be a part of our Grown ND series. Take a picture of your invite and post in the comments below! We can't wait to see you BEING the church. #GROWNDchallenge #invitechallenge
"In His kindness God called you to share in his eternal glory by means of Christ Jesus. So after you have suffered a little while, he will restore, support, and strengthened you, and he will place you on a firm foundation." - 1 Peter 5:10 Peter encourages us to consider that our pain will not last. It will not remain this way! How encouraging that no matter what you are going through you can have confidence that God is working on your behalf. The struggles and trials you are going through will only last for a little while and we get to share in His eternal glory!
