In just a few short weeks, we’ll be there…March Madness! It is one of the most exciting things in all of sports, the NCAA College Basketball tournament. If you’re like me, you’ll be into “bracketology”: figuring out where your favorite teams will fall in what brackets, and how far they will go.
During March in our weekend services, we’re going to continue the basketball theme with our series entitled, AND1. If you follow basketball, you know that AND1 means you’ve scored a basket but you were fouled in the process, so you get another opportunity to score a point at the free throw line. If you make the free throw shot, it’s an AND1 because you added another point to the score.
As we think about that idea, we want to focus this month on each person at Pathway Church helping to bring their AND1 person to a weekend service. We’re challenging each of you to invite someone you know to get another chance at life; to hear the message about Jesus.You and I are part of God’s plan to invite, bring, and share. If we don’t get people to the free throw line, they don’t get there. God doesn’t have a Plan B.
As we prepare for Easter, we couldn’t think of a more important time to be encouraging each of you to be inviters–to bring someone with you to a weekend service. in particular, an Easter weekend service. We’re planning a dynamic celebration on March 26 & 27. We’ll be offering 12 services at five different times on two days at three campuses. It will be a great weekend!
You’ll be hearing more about AND1 in the coming weeks, but I wanted to give you some advance notice so you could begin praying about who in your circle of influence you could bring to an Easter service here at Pathway.
