What: Lunch
Where: Concord General Baptist Church
When: After 11a.m. service Sunday (01/22/17)

Following our meal we will conduct our Annual Church and Education Department Workers and Coordination meeting.

 

This year, however, we will also be sharing the strategy that our Church Council shared with the church last Sunday night to help our church grow this year.

 

For the last few years we've been holding our own, but not growing. This is called being stagnant. Stagnant churches don't stay stagnant. They either grow or die. The difference maker is seeking God's wisdom and then doing what it takes to bring about growth.

 

Join us this Sunday as we share the plans, changes, and excitement of the upcoming year. Following the strategy sharing we will share what each of us can do, and what workers and offices holders must do to bring about growth in our church family.

 

EVERYONE IS INVITED AND ENCOURAGED TO STAY FOR THE MEAL AND THE VISION SHARING. ALL WORKERS, TEACHERS, AND VOLUNTEERS ARE EXPECTED TO STAY, IF AT ALL POSSIBLE.
