6 Month Spiritual Discipline Emphasis
Spiritual Disciplines Spiritual Disciplines 6 Month Emphasis WOSS Spiritual Disciplines are some of those things that you can do to make yourself stronger spiritually. They are things in line with God and are meant to be used that way. If they are used that way then one can claim the promises of Galatians 5 where it says that by embracing the things of the Spirit one can starve off the things of the flesh. At New Heights we will focus on one of these Spiritual Disciplines every six months in a five year rotation. During this time we ask TEAM leaders to incorporate something of the discipline in their meetings. We ask teachers to incorporate the discipline specifically into their lessons. We work together as a body to heighten awareness of the value of the discipline in every day Christian living. The anniversary date for New Heights becoming a constituted church is May 22nd and that date is the switching date in the spring making the other switching date approximately the third week of November. In the 2017-2018 year the two Spiritual Disciplines focused on were Prayer and Worship. The order for the remaining eight in this rotation has not been set and will be scheduled by leadership although requests are certainly welcome. If all goes well this mean that we will be back on Worship in the spring/Summer of 2022 if Jesus does not come again first. If you wish to emphasize worship as a discipline in your life on a daily basis the Pastor has materials you can study as does the Music TEAM leader. Applying what you learn in a diligent fashion will be the effort necessary to practice this Spiritual Discipline.
