One of the great joys in life is helping our friends find eternal life in a friendship with Jesus Christ. An excellent way to help our friends discover how Christ can enrich their life is through ALPHA starting on September 15. To help you invite your friends to ALPHA we are providing you with the BLESS guide, courtesy of Westwood Community Church. The BLESS guide inspires us with biblical direction so that we can naturally BLESS our friends' with Christ's love and our living example of how Christ enriches our life. You can access the BLESS guide in PDF form here.
We pray that the Lord will use our Spiritual Health Assessment to help you to see where you are in your relationship with God and to celebrate what the Lord has been doing in your spiritual growth. We also pray that the Lord will use this assessment to help you to see the areas that the Lord would like you to focus on and with His help move to a more Christ-centred life. This is a confidential assessment and no one will see your results except you and God. We encourage you to do the Spiritual Health Assessment each year to monitor your progress with the Lord, thanking Him for growth and looking at the areas that He wants you to focus on.
