Headlines & Sunday Announcements
VISION SUNDAYS AT WAREHOUSE
September 17, and 24
This Sunday Wes talked to us about how we are called to “be the church.” This involves our leaders discerning God’s vision for Warehouse 242, and then we who call Warehouse home, unleashing our imaginations and rallying around that vision. We were then given the opportunity to explore different ministry areas, learn more about our mission and core values, and to sign up to become a part of a team or join a small group. If you missed it, or if there was just too much stuff to get to in 20 minutes, never fear! You’ll have another opportunity next week, and you can also request more information via this link.
Have general questions? Shoot us an email. We have general answers.
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
Until this Tuesday price of the retreat is $145. After that the price goes up to $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 firstname.lastname@example.org
