Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel...
Philippians 1:27 (ESV)
Fellowship. It's in our name. It's on our logo. But what does it mean? Some people use the word to mean chatting over coffee and cookies. Some use it to refer to a group of people with a common interest, or who share a common space.
But true fellowship is so much more. It's relationship. It's partnership. It's striving together for a common goal. Where fellowship is broken, so is the mission of the church. And where fellowship is healthy, the gospel will multiply.
This Fall, we are going to study the book of Philippians to grow in the true nature and purpose of our fellowship: to partner together in the pursuit of knowing and proclaiming Jesus. Will you join us in this goal?
This 6-week reading plan is designed to prepare you for the sermon each Sunday. Each week contains 5 days of readings with a central scripture passage to study. I pray these scriptures and readings will be as helpful to you as they have been to me as you seek the joy of abiding in Christ.
