40 days of formation

Beginning Monday, October 9th, we are going to spend 40 days together with the intention of becoming more like Jesus and bringing vision from idea to reality. While there is great power in agreeing on a vision together as a community, the way we live daily determines who we become, individually and as a community. These practices are meant to take the overarching vision of “Three Pillars” for our next chapter, and chart a clear pathway by which that vision becomes a reality, taking root in the hearts of people and growing as values in our church. We are thrilled that you are considering joining with us in that process.

Although there are many ways to commune with God on a daily basis and live out the life of obedience that flows from that communion, we believe there is great benefit in committing for a short season to learning new ways to seek God as individuals and a community.

Many of us long to seek and know God more than we do. These 40 days of spiritual practices done in community will create wonderful opportunities for you to connect with God in ways you may have done before, and in ways that may open new horizons of possibility for you. The objective is not simply to check off the spiritual accomplishment everyday, but to practice loving God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength. If you walk through this process with us, you will be intentionally turning yourself towards God and we will grow much stronger as a community.

We strongly encourage you to pursue God in these 40 days in close step with other people. Find a CORE group of 2-3 other people who will commit to meet once a week and honestly discuss how you are meeting God in these practices. Pray for and with each other, share the joys, the challenges, the powerful moments, and the failures.

Following Jesus is something we do together. Join us by using this 40 Days of Formation guide. You can also sign up for daily reminders about the practices by texting "FORMATION" to (718) 618-9337.
