St. John's Faith Explosion
There's a Faith Explosion coming to St. John's United Methodist Church in Seaford. The weekend of Oct 27-29, St. John's is hosting a Lay Witness Mission for the congregation and friends that, in the past, has inspired new vision and excitement in the church. A Lay Witness Mission is a weekend event, known at St. John's as "Faith Explosion" and focuses on inward spiritual growth and renewal through fellowship, small group meetings and testimonies. The Lay Witness Mission encourages the formation of small groups that are vital to the ongoing ministry in a local church. It also uses a model for reaching out to friends, neighbors, relatives, and colleagues and for inviting them into homes for fellowship and discussion. It engages the congregation in prayer ministries that become a vital part of the life of the church. Held twice before at St. John's, in 1972 and 1993, both events helped the church move forward in its mission to go deeper spiritually. The public is cordially invited; visitors are expected. Join us for a covered dish meal and fellowship beginning at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 27.
