At Eden Church we are here to intentionally create pathways that will inspire you to experience life with God in real and tangible ways. This means your spiritual formation is important to us. We have a plan that encourages individual spiritual growth along with coming together as a community that loves one another as we encounter Jesus. One of those pathways is a Weekly Devotion called “Renew” that will come to your inbox every Friday with spiritual encouragement, links to events and information, Scripture references for the coming Sunday and questions for individual or group reflections. The four parts of this weekly email can help you integrate your spiritual life into all areas of your life, because “church was never meant to end in a room.” We invite you to take a fresh breath and let God renew your attitude and spirit.
Encounter - We have been created for relationship with God and He intends that we experience life with Him every minute of every day. We can encounter God through scripture, prayer, nature, art, worship, circumstances and community (just to name a few). Our devotion each week is an invitation to make space for that encounter.
Reflect - As we make space for reflection away from the chaos and busyness of our lives, we will find that our mind, body and spirit can experience a sense of renewal and refreshing as we ask the Holy Spirit to help us understand more of who we are in light of who He is as our Creator and friend. We ask the question, “What does this mean for me, for us?”
Encourage - As we experience renewal and growth, God’s love and blessing will naturally overflow to those we are in relationship with. God calls us to be encouragers and to freely pass on to others the blessings we have found as sons and daughters of God.
Gather - We need each other! God has wired it so that we are spiritually formed through community. We take time to intentionally meet for fellowship, coffee, meals together, Life Groups and recreation so that we can enjoy life together and grow in our love for God and one another by asking questions and talking about how God’s word is relevant to each of our lives. Each week we list questions for discussion.
