About The Series

“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead, they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. –

Matthew 5:14-16

As we move towards a time of year when we focus on the incarnation of Jesus, what would it look like for us to turn the light to full, to shine for Jesus confidently, boldly, and brightly into a world in desperate need? To be a blessing to a city that needs hope.

What does it look like to be this kind of BLESSing? The series will unpack the BLESS principles with an emphasis on praying for communities, listening to the needs, and serving the community with the opportunity to share the story of God.

Over the 5 week series we will learn how to

  • Begin with Prayer
  • Listen
  • Eat
  • Serve
  • Story

As we journey through this series, equip yourself to shine brightly in your world. You are blessed to be a blessing!
