For a lot of churches the months that contain five Sundays (they occur 4x a year) prove to be particularly challenging when it comes to staffing enough volunteers. One value we want to cultivate at Engage is a culture of rest and renewal. As such, we’re planning for these fifth Sundays to be a bit of a break from the usual Sunday routine.
Instead of a normal Sunday service, we’ll do a meal together. Think more of a family time of loosely-structured relational connection than a formal Sunday service. Expect a short devotion not a sermon. On occasion, we may do some baptisms. We’ll outsource the childcare. It’s also a great time to invite family and friends. Here are the details for our first one:
When: Sunday, November 29th @ Noon
Where: 553 Clinton Ave., Albany
Who: Anyone and everyone, register ahead below, send this link to friends/family you invite
Why: Because God invites us into His rest and calls us to community
Cost: Free, but we’d love for you to bring a dessert item to share
