This week's news.......
April 6, 2017
The QuadW Missional Internship is an 8-week, paid, summer internship for college-age young adults. The internship will be in at least 10 cities across the US with positions for as many as 100 interns!
The interns will experience the rhythms of living in Christian community with one another - eating, praying, studying, worshiping and SERVING together.
We believe that growth and transformation happen best through an action/reflection model of discipleship. So that the primary experience of the intern will be time spent relationally serving with and among those in need, in the context in which they are living. They'll be partnering with local churches and other ongoing ministries there. Then, we intentionally pull back to reflect and pray, read Scripture and discuss the ways we hear and see God at work and how we may even more faithfully join God in the work God is doing in the world.
This is a great way to facilitate an openness to God's mission and work that helps young adults take steps in saying "Yes!" to the vocation that is set before each and every Christian.

"A Place at the Table"
is a gathering of ethnic believers (lay and clergy) seeking to have intentional conversations about inclusion and unity throughout the Church. We confess that God’s heart for the Church is that we be a community of diverse believers, working and serving together for the transformation of the world. It is our prayer that this time of intentional conversation will aid in establishing commonality, creating community and bringing clarity of purpose to all our ethnic members and churches within the Alabama-West Florida Conference.
This event will grant a unique opportunity to gather with other believers as we worship and enter into a time of intentional conversation.
We would love for all those interested to join us!
