Teaching Notes

2020 IN REVIEW: Thank God 2020 is in the Rear View!

What one word would you use to describe the last year?

In 2020 we saw:
- A global pandemic bringing the world to a standstill.
- A racial justice movement rivaling the civil rights movement of the 1960’s.
- A contentious presidential election revealing a deeply divided nation.

But that is not the whole story of 2020 for Awakening.

1. It’s been a year of IMPACT.

We long to make a tangible impact in our city through expression of compassion.

2. It’s been a year of GENEROSITY.

We believe the church should lead the way in unleashing extravagant generosity
to hurting and broken world because we have an extravagantly generous God.

What one word do you want to describe 2021?

Reset: a fresh start to a new year

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according
to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus
throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

Ephesians 3:20-21
