Why Us, Why Here?
Our church is not at a turning point. Our direction and desire as a church remains the same as it has been: to make disciples that follow Jesus faithfully in real life. There’s nothing for us to turn from, though there is much to move forward to. Our church is at a catalyst moment where we can re-up on the impact God wants us to have in Seattle. And that will only be done if we know exactly who we are.
This series is built around identifying who we are as a church and what we care about. It’s a values series: what does Icon value as we seek to make disciples that follow Jesus faithfully in real life? And then, how is that specifically helpful to Seattle?
This series will cover six weeks of our church’s values, and then four weeks of covering Seattle-specific culture where we filter Seattle’s culture through our church values and see what could come out on the other side by God’s grace. This series is about recognizing who God has made us to be, and then getting to work at our mission field.JUMP TO SERIES RESOURCES
