Convergence Membership Classes

March 9, 2015  
Filed under Events

Membership is an opportunity to make a commitment to the life of the church body.  The commitment lasts one year and is renewed annually. If you are interested in becoming an official member of Convergence Church there is a 3-part process.  It begins with a membership class, then an interview with the elder board, and finally a consecration service where you will be presented before God and the congregation as an official member.  The membership classes are broken up into two 2-hour courses. The dates of the next classes are:

PART 1: March 22nd (1-3pm) & March 29th (1-3pm)

PART 2: April 12th (1-3pm) & April 19th (4-6pm)

If you are interested in becoming a member of Convergence Church or would like more information, please contact Joe at joe@convergeoakland.org.

RENOVATE!!!

Filed under Events

Renovate_SimpleGraphicWHO: Everyone who calls Convergence their church community.

WHAT: This will be an event that will be our launching pad for 2015. Our purpose is to share a meal together, fellowship, hear each others’ experiences of Convergence (good and bad), testify of God’s movement in our lives, and envision our future.

WHY: In any journey, there comes a moment when it is both healthy and necessary to pause, reflect, reassess, and adjust.  We’re about to begin our seventh year as a church and we are at that moment.  There are things to be pruned, things to be cultivated, new things to be imagined! In order to grow into the future as a healthy and vibrant church, we need all of you.  We need your whole presence and your whole participation so that we can truly be a whole church.  Even if you’ve joined our church in the last week, this is the opportunity to jump in and be a part of shaping our future.

WHEN: November 2 from 5pm-8pm.

WHERE: West Oakland Senior Center (1724 Adeline St.)

HOW: RSVP HERE.

The Parent’s Life Group will have a BBQ on Sunday, May 18th!   This month a new Life Group for parents will launch.  In order to make this work for parents, we’re going to create a format where dads meet bi-weekly and moms meet bi-weekly alternating each week.  Then, on the 8th or 9th week, they will have an all family gathering with everyone!  It may not be the perfect set up since parents do not get to meet as couples, but it may be a great alternative for this particular season of life.  If you are interested, please email Pastor Bobby at bobby@convergeoakland.org.

If you have not already signed up, there is still an opportunity to join the Sonship group. Pastor Bobby will be leading a discipleship group in a curriculum called Sonship. Sonship is published by World Harvest Mission (www.whm.org) and is a study and introspective journey using Paul’s letter to the Galatians as the backdrop. It has been a pivotal resource in his growth as a follower of Jesus and he is excited for the chance to lead it and grow deeper with a new group this season. The group will be meeting weekly for 16 weeks and will require weekly readings and write-ups.  If you’re interested, please email him at bobby@convergeoakland.org.
