What is Your Vision for the World?

What is your vision for the world? Jesus clearly expressed His vision as He taught His disciples to pray: that God’s kingdom would come to characterize the world He created. He calls us to continue to pray that God’s “will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” Is this your vision, too? How can you be part of bringing God’s kingdom to life in your spheres of influence today?

This, then, is how you should pray: “‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.’” — Matthew 6:9-13

At King’s Grant, we are experiencing several events to help bring God’s kingdom on earth: Winter Shelter January 23-30, Ken’s January Bible Study on Desiring More (our journey toward personal holiness), the Pursue series (the intensity of our faith), Wednesday Life Groups this next semester (starting back January 30) and Billie Todd will be leading a Wednesday evening class on prayer beginning January 30 at 6:00. All this is designed to develop community, faith, and love.

Continue to pray for God’s will to be done in your life and in the life of the church.

Our M3 Emphasis for 2018

We hope you will join us for our local “Back to Church” on September 9. Graded classes will promote to their new classrooms (9:45), we will have a children’s celebration before classes begin, we are excited about the beginning of our new Gospel Project curriculum, and have a place for every family member.

Join us this September during our M3 Emphasis…

With an M3 emphasis (member, minister, missions), what are the possibilities of actually recognizing all three components of the vision during September? Below could be a potential schedule. Take a look and let me know your feedback. We will also discuss this tomorrow in staff.

Celebrating M1. On Sunday, September 9, celebrate “Back to Church” Sunday, emphasizing the first of our core values – COMMUNITY, represented by M1 (MEMBER). An invite card will be handed to every member to use with inviting others to visit KGBC.

Celebrating M2. On Sunday, September 16, emphasizing our second core value – FAITH, represented by M2 (MINISTRY). During this day we WILL celebrate and give special thanks to all who serve through KGBC.

Celebrating M3. On Sunday, September 30, emphasizing our third core value – LOVE, represented by M3 (MISSION). This will be our Mission Sunday, sharing the call and opportunity for everyone to live a missional life.

Our Vision Statement: We exist as a community of faith to extend the love of Christ and his kingdom in Virginia Beach and to the world.
