The Church 7-10 Aug 2013
God thinks a great deal of His church:
And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him (Jesus) to be head over everything for the church.
(Eph 1:22 NIV)
The church is meant to mean a great deal to the world:
His intent was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known.
(Eph 3:10 NIV)
Do you understand what this means and looks like in your life in church and outside of it?
If God thinks of the church in this way, then…
Are we equipped to serve Him according to what He thinks of His church? Just what and who is the church? Who is meant to be the boss in church and are churches all the same? (Why are there so many of them then?)
Is the purpose of church to help people feel better about themselves?
TTC 2013 brings Christians the opportunity to bring glory to God in their understanding of His precious Church and the ministry He has given those who serve Him.
Happening over the Raya break, TTC is your chance to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city for 4D3N of being equipped for ministry whilst enjoying fellowship with Christians from other churches.
