New Series Underway

We have had a sweet time getting to know many among our new church family at Fellowship Church in Burlington, NC.  It has also been a blessing to meet some folks who have been away during parts of the church’s transitions.  This is a great time to engage or re-engage with the church as we have begun a new series at both our Sunday and Wednesday gatherings.

On Sundays, we are taking a tour of the letter to the Philippians that we are calling Unity for the Community.  This 7-part series will help us to see what we all have in common in order to be the church that God desires that we be: a community “contending together for the faith of the gospel” (Philippians 1.27).  The worship gathering begins at 11am.

On Wednesdays, we are looking at the story of the Ezra-Nehemiah team as we see how God coordinates His own mission.  This series, called On a Mission, will help us to see how to get on board with God’s plans.  In Ezra and Nehemiah’s day, God’s people had been living as slaves in another land, and they were ready to rebuild a place of worship and an entire city: “I also told them about the gracious hand of my God upon me and what the king had said to me.  They replied, ‘Let’s start rebuilding.’  So they began this good work” (Nehemiah 2.18).  This prayer and Bible study gathering begins at 6.30pm.

Here is a map to our location.

Let’s join in God’s great mission together!
