Greetings E-news Friends,
Encouraged. A study of 1 Peter:
Discouragement can come from many areas of life -- some we don’t even realize. This Sunday begins a 12-week study of 1 Peter. Join us to study God’s word given to us through Peter--a man who walked in this world with Jesus so that we may know how to walk in a world where sometimes we may feel like we are without Jesus -- true encouragement!
Briarcliff has a gift for you! This Sunday everyone will receive a journal complete with instructions and tools to encourage you in prayer, Bible interaction and discipleship. If you miss this Sunday, you can get a journal in the lobby over the next several weeks. Learn more about discipleship journals here.
Praise and Prayer Evenings:
This Sunday evening, March 25, we will have an evening of praise and prayer led by our young adults. We will be praying for the Easter Festival and Egg Hunt, Easter services, building renovation progress, and much more. The prophet Jeremiah tells us of God’s invitation to pray.
“Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know.” Don’t miss this inspiring opportunity to call on God and see great and mighty things he has planned for us at Briarcliff.
We will meet in the student area on the second level at 6:00 PM.

There is no event in history to compare with the resurrection of Jesus Christ. What makes it amazing is Jesus promises all who follow him the same resurrected life. Who are some of your family and friends that would be blessed by joining with you in worship on Easter? This could be a turning point in their lives for all eternity. You may be surprised of how many will respond to your invitation.
Personal Discipleship Plan (PDP):
It is exciting to see how many of you have gone on line and completed the Personal Discipleship Plan inventory. As Christians committed to pursuing discipleship, our desire should be to intentionally grow together as disciples (students) of Jesus Christ. To better determine how to grow, we must first be honest about our current reality. We must ask the questions, "What type of disciple am I today?" and "How can I grow as a disciple?" The PDP will help identify areas of strength and growth and give direction in setting life-changing goals. If you have not completed the PDP, take the next step.
