THEME: “Gratitude” – I Thank God Every Time I Remember You
SCRIPTURE: Philippians 1:3
“I thank my God every time I remember you, constantly praying with joy in every one of my prayers for all of you, because of your sharing in the gospel from the first day until now. I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work among you will bring it to completion by the day of Jesus Christ. It is right for me to think this way about all of you, because you hold me in your heart,[d] for all of you share in God’s grace[e] with me, both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel. For God is my witness, how I long for all of you with the compassion of Christ Jesus. And this is my prayer, that your love may overflow more and more with knowledge and full insight to help you to determine what is best, so that in the day of Christ you may be pure and blameless, having produced the harvest of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ for the glory and praise of God.”

CRITICAL CONVERSATIONS … Four topics to choose from!
Merriam Webster definition … the free flow of meaning between two or more people.
Christ called His church to the primary task of making disciples. How are we doing what He called us to do?
As we live in confusing times and spaces, how can our churches connect with young adults and vice versa to make a meaningful connection? The time together will most likely raise more questions, but come and learn what answers God would have for us
Often older adults in our churches feel intimidated or unappreciated when changes are being made to attract or keep younger generations. At the same time young adults are giving up on church in record numbers. In the midst of this God calls us to BE the Church.
Is it enough to change styles of worship or church structures in order to make church meaningful for younger generations? How do we know what is needed? How do we find out?
• Connecting Sunday Faith and Monday Work - Rev. Dr. Jonathan Wu
Over 98 percent of all Christians work in occupations other than as pastor or missionary. Each local church needs to help their people bridge their faith from Sunday to Monday, to integrate their following Jesus into all of their life.
