Fall 2021 Sermon Series

Sermon Series Note

Mike Breen says, “If you make disciples you always get the church. But if you make a church, you rarely get disciples.”  Mike is pointing us in the right direction. What does it mean to be formed by the Holy Spirit as a disciple, or as a follower of Jesus on mission with him. Join us as we consider and adopt the passions and practices of Jesus followers on mission with him. What the world needs now is not more “believers,” but more and better disciples of Christ being conformed to him by the Holy Spirit day by day. “It’s morphin’ time!” 

And a Covid note:

We are back and gathering in person as vaccinations continue to go out in our community and as our local Delta variant case rates continue to rise and fall. Masks are optional at our gatherings, but we encourage you to use one still if you have a compromised immune system, or have yet to receive a vaccine, or if you are part of another higher-risk category. We are a loving community that always tries to prioritize the need of another first, and so we will resume our “pandemic” practices of love and care for each other through masking, distancing, etc. if and as needed in the future.

Fellowship

Sue Plockmeyer and Sue Knoll

Gibson Church is a warm, friendly, inviting, enfolding, loving, and hospitable community. We gather for coffee and homemade baked treats after our morning worship services. We love to gather and spend time together, often sharing a meal or other special activity. These special family fellowship times are planned throughout the year and enjoyed by all who attend. 

Events

Thursdays At The Felt

We are FOR Laketown. That means that we love to partner with events and activities in our neighborhood where we can participate and serve for the good of Laketown. We will be at the Felt Concert Series each Thursday evening in July. We’ll have some free ice cream and we’d love to meet any and all who come out to the concerts. When you’re at the Felt Concerts, come on by, introduce yourself, and get some ice cream! See you there!
