Disruptive Rhythms: Breaking Out of the Mold

Life can feel like a tug of war between desiring to contribute to the flourishing of our communities and feeling unequipped, or even disempowered, to steward our lives and Kingdom call.

This quarter we will engage rhythms of life that can sustain, encourage, and move us to live into our calling. It is imperative that we grow so we can invest in our vocation and callings. Join us as we ask how disruptive rhythms enable and empower us to break out of our everyday molds.

“Therefore, I urge you, sisters and brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God — this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is — his good, pleasing and perfect will.” — Romans 12:1–2
