It's almost time for 2019 Kickoff Weekend! Kickoff Weekend is taking place August 8-10 at 1800 Blanding St. The sessions will be Thursday and Friday night, and then the morning on Saturday. All Midtown Missionary Members (who have taken Midtown Class and signed the member covenant) are invited.
Every year, Kickoff Weekend is a chance for us to do intentional mission training as a church. This year, we want to focus that attention and training on cultural analysis and how to read our current cultural climate for the sake of responding as faithful gospel witnesses. To that end, we will be doing teaching and studying together various aspects of our culture and how the Bible speaks directly into those areas.
If you want to get ahead in preparing for the weekend we would highly encourage you to check out two different resources:
This Cultural Moment podcast (Seasons 1 & 3) featuring John Mark Comer and Mark Sayers.
The Righteous Mind by Jonathan Haidt.
While we would not affirm everything these resources talk about, they will be very helpful to get you thinking about some of these different things before the weekend arrives.
We look forward to seeing you August 8, 2019 for Kickoff Weekend!
If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to Tim Olson.
