"Therefore GO! with Hope - Through Hospitality"

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2018 
 9:00 am - 3:30 pm 
The Wesley Center, Woodworth, LA

Radical Sending is about turning congregations from "Come" congregations to "Go" congregations. The emphasis on "Come" is important - but the emphasis "Go" is even more important! When new members are introduced to Christ and are not challenged and supported to serve in Christ's mission in their daily lives, the mission of the congregation fails in its mission to serve Christ! 

Receiving people with grace is an essential part of practicing of hospitality. Equally important is learning to accept hospitality from others, as we go out into the world as Christ's disciples. Christ sends us out to engage with those we meet, in ways that invite others to see Christ in action. 

You're invited to join the Board of Laity and presenter Demi Prentiss on Feb. 24, at the Wesley Center in exploring what "being sent" can mean for individual disciples. What can congregations accomplish when members know that Christ has sent them? Bring a team from your congregation to imagine how you might transform the world, starting in your neighborhood. 

Demi Prentiss is a life and leadership coach. She co-authored Radical Sending - Go to Love and Serve, published in 2015 by Morehouse. Visit www.demiprentiss.com for more information about Demi. Visit http://www.radicalsending.com/ for more information about Demi's book.
