Talk It Up

Sunday, April 6, 2014

Starting at 9:30 AM

“Talk It Up!” is a day especially designed for conversation, community, and creativity.  We will begin with a combined class, and then worship, followed by conversation over a “family picnic” and dreaming about our opportunities to glorify God.

This journey began with the congregational analysis directed by Don Hebbard in December.  Participation in the analysis was great.  We are adding knowledge to our faith and discovering who we really are as a congregation.  The report suggests opportunities and further discovery for West-Ark.  The first step to spiritual growth and progress is getting together to talk it up.

There will be three parts to the schedule on April 6:

  1. Class & Discussion: All Bible Classes (Bridge 56 and above) will meet in the auditorium at 9:30 AM.  Our shepherds will share what they noticed in the analysis.  They will also share real opportunities and resources for personal and family development that are available to West-Ark
  2. Worship: Our assembly at 10:30 AM will be centered around the Body of Christ and the Greatest Commands.  In our singing, communing, and sharing of the word we will experience the spiritual and biblical realities that ground our discussions, habits, and dreams.
  3. Talk It Up Fellowship: We will be sent out to enjoy a Family Picnic in the West-Ark building.  Food will be served in the Family Life Center but we will gather to eat and talk in groups throughout the building.  We talk and chat during family meals, so we will do the same in these groups.  Each room prepared for a “Talk It Up” discussion will have a particular topic that comes from the congregational analysis (click here for a description of the topics).  There will be enough time during the afternoon to visit three of these discussions.  We want you to choose the ones that interest you most.  Please feel free to join in the discussion or listen and take notes so that you can “Talk It Up” with others later.  Child care for infants through 6th grade will be available in the Family Life Center during the discussion groups.
