Week of August 26

Welcome to Encounter 

Welcome to Encounter Church.  We have a gift for you at our welcome table in the back.  Stop by and say "Hello"

Goliath Must Fall

A new series starting September 2.

Teacher Blessings

Today we will hear a testimony from one of the teachers and how our being on campus makes a difference.

Signups will be after church in the back for the whole year. You can signup on the Encounter app on the google doc, donate money towards a blessing and the team will come up with a treat, or Amy will help you sign up in the back.

There is a flyer in the back with ideas for blessings

Together Groups

This fall we are pressing into Encountering God and become passionate disciples of Jesus.  The word disciple means follower. It means being a student and sitting at the feet of Jesus.  Becoming more like him is radical transformation and one of the best ways to see radical transformation take place is in small groups.  Here at Encounter we call our small groups, Together Groups. Together Groups meet 6 times during the fall. AND We are launching a new series on both Sunday mornings and for 6 weeks in our Together Groups called Goliath Must Fall.  This fall, we will learn how to walk in the victory that Jesus has already bought for us.   This new series will be launching September 2 and you can sign-up for Together Groups and Rooted Groups on our church app starting today or at the welcome table after the service. The cost for a study guide is only $5 and scholarships are available.  Groups will be starting September 9.

Rooted Group

Rooted is a 10-week discipleship experience.   Whether you are a new believer or have walked with the Lord for many years, you will be brought back to the simplicity and depth of what it means to walk in a growing and thriving relationship with Jesus through prayer, daily devotions and service.   Rooted is how we define being a passionate disciple at Encounter.  Groups wil be starting September 9.
