Lectio & Pete Rollins is back in town!

Lectio divina this Wednesday @ St. Marks ~ 10 a.m.

If you have never experienced lectio, consider taking 40 mintues of your day to focus on the biblical text with a group of people who are following Jesus.

It's not a difficult practice; it won't make you uncomfortable. Our time together will simply center you on the biblical text.

~ When you arrive at the gate, push the speaker button and let the receptionist know that you are with the emergent west michigan people. She'll gladly let you into the parking lot.


Pete Rollins is back in town this week. He is here to participate in the Calvin Symposium on Worship. He will be participating in that event this Thursday.

This Friday Pete is making himself available to the larger community. Emergent West Michigan is excited that Pete has agreed to hang out with us, talk with us, and simply share life together.

~Two gathering times for conversation this Friday~

Founders @ 1:30 p.m. on Friday
* A very informal time of conversation around Pete's work... challenging and encouraging one another to think and live more deeply into the kingdom of God.

The home of Randy & Kathy Buist @ 6:30 p.m. on Friday until...
* We're going with a potluck theme. Bring food of any sort, and bring something to drink... sharing is expected.
If you can't bring for or drink, show up anyway!
So, don't bring something that you will hoard.
Show up whenever... stay until whenever...
Kids of all ages welcome ~ Your friends are also welcome.
