UNITED METHODIST VOLUNTEERS IN MISSION (UMVIM)
Saturday, October 27 | 9:30am-2:00pm | Ashland First UMC
Presented by trained lay leaders from the Zimbabwe Conference of The United Methodist Church.
Hosted by East Ohio Zimbabwe partners at the Ashland First UMC
Amazing inspiration and discovery focused on these 3 topics:
Christians are called to evangelize and reach out to the lost. Evangelism is the work of the Holy Spirit. Hear how GOD has worked, moved and what differences Christ has made in Zimbabwe. Discover ideas and/or examples of how to connect the Holy Spirit, the life of the church with the needs of the community.
Class/Cell groups are about the development of congregations/communities who share their lives, their walk with God and their witness for Jesus TOGETHER. We know that John Wesley was extremely intentional in placing individuals in small groups to foster and encourage their spiritual growth. Our Zimbabwe sisters and brothers will share methods and stories of how to build relationships and trust within the class/cell gatherings by "watching over one another in love" and "to be better followers of Jesus.”
Discover how the church in Zimbabwe has experienced discipleship to help their congregations live into its mission of forming members into faithful disciples of Jesus Christ living as Christ's witnesses in the world. Discover ideas and suggestions for creating committed and Spirit-filled discipleship for all ages.
Cost is $10 (includes lunch), register online by Oct 23
