In the Gospel of John, Jesus makes some very bold claims about himself in what have come to be known as the "I AM" statements of Christ.
Jesus said, "I AM..."
"The Bread of life" John 6:35, 48, 51
"The Light of the world" John 8:12, 9:5
"The Door" John 10:7,9
"The Good Shepherd" John 10:11,14
"The Resurrection and Life" John 11:25
"The Way, The Truth, and Life" John 14:6
"The True Vine" John 15:1
Each one of them describes something very important about his nature and character as God. In the weeks leading up to Easter we will be taking an in depth look at what each of these statements by Jesus meant to the people who heard them as well as what they mean for us today.
Dear Church, we invite you to join us as we learn how to be AND make disciples. If you are interested in joining a 12-session discipleship class facilitated by Pastor Josh, please follow the link (www.thewell.church/multiply) and fill out the form.
This group will meet on the 1st & 3rd Monday of the month from 7 - 8:15pm starting in February! We will be reading the book, "Multiply" by Francis Chan. There is no fee for the class as all materials can be found online at multiplymovement.com (although you can purchase a book if you prefer).
We hope to see you there!
IF:Huntington will be held at Faith Chapel UMC (2978 W 1100 N, Huntington) on Friday, March 9 from 6-9 pm, and Saturday, March 10 from 9am-2pm. Join us for live worship, video teachings from amazing speakers and fellowship as we discuss what we learn. Lunch on Saturday will be provided. This event is free and open to all women in our community!
What IF we followed God with perseverance instead of insecurity? At IF:Gathering 2018, we will look at one of Paul’s letters to Timothy as he reminded him of the power and responsibility of sharing the gospel. We want to give God away in the very places He’s put us, so we’re going to gather for the purpose of remembering why following God and making disciples matters. We all get tired, we all wonder if what we’re doing matters, so IF:Gathering 2018 will be the reminder--it will be the celebration. The work we’re doing to share the gospel on the earth is worth it and God DOES move through the little things that nobody sees. Join us!

We are taking time as a church today to be very intentional about prayer and spending quality time with The Father. If you plan on coming to the church today to pray, we have a prayer guide available for you to walk through. We know that some of you aren't able to make it in to the building today, but want to be praying with your church, so we are making the prayer guide available for you to download and pray through. If you have any specific prayer requests you'd like prayed for, please comment below or send us an email. We believe in the power of prayer!
Join us for a great time of food and fellowship. This is for all ages, sons to grandfathers, and everyone in between!
Classes will run from February 9th - March 22nd, Tuesdays, 7-8:30 pm at the church.

We will use the book Multiply by Francis Chan. The cost of the book is $10, materials are also available for free at multiplymovement.com. Transportation can be arranged for HU students if needed. Contact Pastor Josh, firstname.lastname@example.org, and let him know you're interested.
