Talk Notes

DISRUPTIVE DISCIPLESHIP
6.15.21
One of the key factors of spiritual growth and formation in your life will be pain and disruption.
Each step of growth and formation will require a new level of surrender.
3 Chairs of Discipleship and Spiritual Formation:
CHAIR #1: SEEKER
Mark 1:16-17
16 As Jesus walked beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Peter and his brother Andrew casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. 17 “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.”18 At once they left their nets and followed him.
3 Chairs of Discipleship and Spiritual Formation:
CHAIR #2: BELOVED
Matthew 16:13-16
13When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his
disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?” 14 They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” 15 “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” 16 Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”
3 Chairs of Discipleship and Spiritual Formation:
CHAIR #3: PURPOSE
Often, your greatest purpose in life will be found on the other side of your greatest pain and your greatest struggle.
Luke 22:31-33
31 “Peter, Satan has asked to sift you as wheat.32But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers.” 33 But he replied, “Lord, I am ready to go with you to prison and to death.”
John 21:15-17
15 When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?” “Yes, Lord,” he said, “you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Feed my lambs.” 16 Again Jesus said, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” He answered, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Take care of my sheep.” 17 The third time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?”
John 21:17-19
17 Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love me?” He said, “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Feed my sheep. 18 Very truly I tell you, when you were younger you dressed yourself and went where you wanted; but when you are old you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will dress you and lead you where you do not want to go.” 19 Jesus said this to indicate the kind of death by which Peter would glorify God. Then he said to him, “Follow me!”

God I look to You

God, I look to You, I won’t be overwhelmed
Give me vision to see things like You do
God, I look to You, You’re where my help comes from
Give me wisdom, You know just what to do

God, I look to You, and I won’t be overwhelmed
Give me vision to see things like You do
God, I look to You, and You’re where my help comes from
Give me wisdom, You know just what to do

And I will love You, Lord my strength
And I will love You, Lord my shield
And I will love You, Lord, my rock
Forever all my days, I will love You, God

Hallelujah our God reigns
Hallelujah our God reigns
Oh, Hallelujah our God (You) (reign)s
Forever all my days, Hallelujah
Hallelujah our God reigns
And Hallelujah our God reigns
Oh, Hallelujah our God reigns
Forever all my days, Hallelujah

Hallelujah our God reigns
Hallelujah our God reigns
Hallelujah our God reigns
Forever all my days, Hallelujah

Hallelujah our God reigns
Hallelujah our God reigns
Hallelujah our God reigns
Forever all my days, Hallelujah
And Hallelujah our God reigns
Hallelujah our God reigns
And Hallelujah our God reigns
Forever all my days, Hallelujah
And Hallelujah our God reigns
Hallelujah our God reigns
And Hallelujah our God reigns
Forever all my days, Hallelujah

And Hallelujah our God reigns
And Hallelujah our God reigns
And Hallelujah our God reigns
Forever all my days, Hallelujah

Giving & Serving Challenge

Looking ahead:
The City Church mission has been clear from day one: to see our city transformed by the gospel of Jesus Christ. We measure success by the spread of God’s Kingdom throughout the city, by sending disciple-makers, and by starting new churches. Thanks to the faithfulness and generosity of our members, we are poised to see incredible movements of the gospel in 2021!

Our New Home:
We will begin construction soon on our new, permanent facility at I-44 and Peoria. This 53,220 square feet building is perfectly situated between Brookside & Hope Valley, and will be a hub for disciple-making, missional training, and church multiplication.

Time of disruption:
As we move forward in 2021, we are rebuilding in the area of serving and finances. We’re in need of 72 new serve-team members and increasing our total monthly income by $18,000.

As a part of this family, we are asking you to:

1) Take your next step of obedience on the Generosity Pathway.

2) Join a team and help us continue to create more opportunities for people to experience Jesus. We’re in need of 72 new servants to pull off our weekly gatherings.
