Cool and inviting. Ripening fruit. Strong trees. Growth. Life.
Roots go deep, trees reach high, branch out.
Trees stand together, support one another.
Lots of seedlings that can plant new trees.
Requires a lot of work. God ultimately is the giver of fruit.
Sounds like a church, doesn’t it?
Deep roots (discipleship, spiritual growth)
Reaching high (worship)
Standing together (community)
Branching out (evangelism, church planting, international missions)
Fruit (Christ-likeness, spiritual maturity, ministry that refreshes and sustains others)
Cool and inviting (Yes, you do invite people to join you)
Yet, the fruit is not for the orchard (Yes, you are missional, turned outward, not inward)
The Orchard Fellowship is being planted in the Memphis area this summer.
Please join me in praying that the Lord of the Orchard will send laborers into his harvest.
More information tomorrow!
