Headlines & Sunday Announcements
GETTING ENGAGED AT WAREHOUSE
Over the past 2 Sundays we have explored what it means to be called to “be the church.” Wes, Mike and Nate have unpacked the vision that our Core Leadership Team has discerned for Warehouse in this next year, and we have had opportunities to learn more and to engage in this vision in real ways. If you missed it, or if you didn’t have time to visit all of the stations you were interested in, you can also request more information via this link.
And, as always, you can reach us via email.
DOMINICAN REPUBLIC LISTENING TRIP / MEDICAL CLINIC
We partner with By Grace Alone Ministries as they continue the long-term development of the Fuente de Vida project near Santo Domingo. This involves strengthening the capacity of local leaders to bring urgent medical assistance, educational development, small business startups, and pastor training opportunities to materially poor neighbors. Through short-term listening trips, Warehouse 242 has the opportunity to experience the project firsthand and experience global development while learning with and from local Dominican leaders who know the communities best.
October 20-22 @ Montreat
Matt Bradner is the guest speaker this year, and he’s phenomenal. Plus, we’ll have some great adventures to sign up for, the food is fantastic, and the company even better! The cost of the retreat is $160. It only takes a $50 deposit to secure your spot. Registration closes and full payment is due on October 9.
If you have questions or need more info about payment options and scholarship opportunities, contact Ryan at [email protected]
