LIFE GROUP MINISTRY TRAINING
This Saturday (August 20) at 10am, we are having a Training Meeting for our Life Groups. This is for all our current Life Group leaders, those who are interested in being a Life Group leader, and anyone interested in learning more about our Life Group Ministry. We’ll meet in the fellowship hall and go over the ministry and explore how Life Groups work in the overall mission of McKendree. We’re asking everyone who comes to bring a brunch item to share. If you’d like to attend, please RSVP to Ruth Baggett at 615-271- 2600 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
THE ENCOUNTER@EDGEHILL is a multi-racial, multi-ethnic, multi-generational, and multi-class movement and extension ministry of McKendree for the purpose of building bridges of hope through the love of Jesus Christ. It is the first of several locations planned for Nashville neighborhoods including MetroCenter (August) and 12South and Music Row.
The Encounter seeks to extend McKendree’s mission of making disciples of Christ for thetransformation of the world by engaging in:
— Vital conversations about gospel and reconciliation
— Compassionate relationships with all people
— Life giving action that moves us beyond our comfort and complacency into the mission field of Nashville neighborhoods and beyond where God is calling us and waiting for us.
While there may be some elements of worship at a typical Encounter, the focus of each gathering is face to face conversations around tables. In these risky, vulnerable small group conversations around tables we seek to confront issues of privilege, racism, and classism that divide, to hear the call to God’s beloved community and then be invited to transformative engagement in the communities of Nashville. The Encounter@Edgehill meets at 6PM the first Sunday of each month at the Edgehill Café, 1201 Villa Place, Nashville, TN. For more information, contact Rev. Stephen Handy (email@example.com) or Rick Quinn (firstname.lastname@example.org).
