Dinner Club – Greg Wahlberg’s Story

After being a part of what God was doing on in the lives of students on a college campus, Greg was ready to jump head first into ministry in the workplace. But there are some serious differences between the two. It wasn’t long before Greg caught on to the differences and the difficulties of ministry in the workforce and he grew discouraged.

A year passed of not seeing much spiritually happen. Then one night, he went to dinner with some friends. A simple, somewhat normal type of event. They had fun and decided to go out again the next week. And the next week. And the next… well, you get the point.

With that, God began to show Greg how He wanted to use him among his colleagues and bring life change in Jesus’ name to the group.

Vision & Plan - Questions to work through

On May 12 and 19, Nic Gibson, our Preaching Pastor, gave us all something to think about in terms of how God views His Church and how we are a part of what He’s doing.
This was a handout that people got to walk through while Nic was giving his sermon on May 19.

Have you thought about the questions yet? What is God revealing to you?
