Can you believe the New Year is right around the corner? With 2018 coming to an end, many of us are taking time to reflect on this past year and looking forward to a fresh start.
Ready or not, heading into a new year with purpose and a plan is the best way to start strong. We’ve compiled a list of resources, tips, and training to help you and your church grow, encourage, and lead well in 2019.
For Your Church
Many people make January 1 a “reset”—starting over on habits that are important to them, like reading their Bible every day, attending church weekly, or having more date nights with their spouse. New Years is the perfect time to stir your church attenders toward personal and spiritual growth.
As you plan your January content, there are many excellent sermon series available on the Open Network. Browse through the following content from Life.Church and ministry partners.
- First Things First
- You in Five Years from Fresh Life Church
- I Declare War from Fresh Life Church
- Keep the Change from Fresh Life Church
- Jesus and We
- This is My Year from North Point Ministries
Encourage your attenders to download the YouVersion Bible App and engage with God’s Word daily. Through the app, your church has access to Events, a way to house your sermon notes right inside the app. And, users can read Plans with small groups, friends, and family through the Plans with Friends feature.
If you’re looking for a new, creative way to help your attenders understand the Bible, download high-resolution videos from our partner, The Bible Project. Play the videos in sermons, small groups, or youth ministry events to help your congregation get a better understanding of scripture. Popular videos include:
- Read Scripture: Romans
- Read Scripture: Genesis
- Read Scripture: Acts
- Read Scripture: Matthew
- Read Scripture: Revelation
