Our 4:30 Sunday “prequel” continues to develop into yet another wonderful opportunity in training and encouragement at White Rock Church of Christ.
This Sunday our “prequel” centers on speaker training. Please come out to hear Cody Rubit’s lesson. He is preparing for the Youth Led Worship at the end of the month and will use this time as a practice for him. Please encourge him by being here for him!
Every week we feature a different area of worship. The first week of the month we sing together. The next week we pray together. Any man willing to pray is called upon and asked to pray about specific things, plus whatever he wants to pray about. Prayer requests are also encouraged. The third Sunday is speaking. We will have people speak who normally do not have the opportunity. These speeches will normally be short, especially if he does not have experience. We want to encourage our men to learn this skill gradually by talking about things they know about very well. We will also have discussions by the preacher or other qualified men about lesson preparation and presentation skill. The fourth is Bible reading. On a fifth Sunday we will combine them all and have a prequel worship service led by people who normally do not have the opportunity.
These times are not only a time when we get together for devotional activities, they are times for encouraging one another.
This is a small effort to help hit a large goal of encouraging spiritual leadership development both in the worship assembly and outside of it. Anyone can say they want to develop leaders. Taking small steps is the key to achieving it.
