2013, Bible reading and discipleship

Happy New Years Eve!!!
This is your last day to prepare your New Year’s resolutions…..or….dissolutions if you heard Fred during Brag on God yesterday.
 Even without a Mayan Calendar for guidance, I am expecting this to be an incredible year for the New Life family. God has been opening up opportunities for us to partner with other churches and ministries in the KC area. We have started planning for some missions trips, several individuals have stepped up their commitment to local ministry and from my perspective, the excitement is getting contagious.

I suggest you take some time this evening or tomorrow to choose a Bible reading plan for this next year. If you need some suggestions try these:

I believe God is calling us to become more serious about personal discipleship. I am praying for 64 New Lifers who will make the commitment to pray for God to give us one disciple in 2013. So far we have 54 who have committed which leaves us with 10 more opportunities to commit.
The leadership at New Life is committed to providing the necessary support and accountability to for you to see a goal for personal discipleship become a reality. If you are willing to add your name to the list, please reply and include your cell phone carrier and # as we will be using text messages a one of our methods for communication.
I am praying for each of us to experience God’s best this next year!
