Greetings CCWC Family!

Now What? Next Steps of Discipleship / January 7th – March 31st
Sermon Series Details

The Advent season has come and gone! What an amazing season of anticipation, followed by the
celebration of the greatest gift humanity has ever received, Jesus Christ! The Savior of the
World! But the celebration of Jesus’ arrival is only the first part of the historical narrative, in just
a few short months Christ-followers all around the world will celebrate the second of God’s
amazing miracles, the resurrection of Jesus. Holy Week recognizes the events leading up to the
resurrection of Jesus; as well as His arrest, crucifixion, and burial. A week the changes the bleak
plight of humanity forever!

The season of Advent is one that prepares the heart and mind of each Christ-follower to receive
the hope, peace, joy, and love of Jesus. In recognizing of the Advent season of preparation and
anticipation leading up to Christmas we embrace a similar posture as we march toward the
celebration of Resurrection Sunday! We plan to facilitate a similar “Advent” season for the next
three months.

As one does when they first accept the “arrival of the King” into one’s life, you may be asking
the same question after once again celebrating the arrival of the King this Christmas season; Now
What? The answer is simple, we embrace the journey to grow in knowledge and grace of our
Savior. This series will detail and highlight the spiritual disciplines, (or practices) that help
Christ-followers grow in their faith. Some of these disciplines will operate as individual
practices, while others will facilitate communal practices. God has created specific channels, that
He intends for us to embrace so that we might grow in relationship and understanding of Him!
Ultimately, the heart of this is to embrace a posture of preparation and reception to the God who
created us, the God who loves, the God who makes all things new!
