First Baptist Church of Ames

Spirited Listening

On Pentecost Sunday, June 4, our church will engage in small group conversations we are calling "Spirited Listening."  As a part of the AMOS House Meeting campaign, we are inviting everyone to participate in a small group conversation centered around the question, "What keeps you up at night?"  We will listen to one another's stories and listen for God's Spirit at work.   Besides taking part in the larger AMOS process, we are looking forward to these conversations as a way to better know and support one another as a church family.  We will meet following worship and then share a noon meal together.  We hope you will join us!

To help us with the lunch count and to know how many groups to plan for, we are encouraging everyone to sign up in advance.  You can sign up to be part of a group on the bulletin board outside the office or send an email to the office saying that you want to be a part of Spirited Listening.
