Who Are We

As we continue to go forward as a church, there becomes a time when we no longer can talk about who we want to be, but who we are.  If we want to be a church that reaches into the community to engage people, that’s what we have to do.  If we want to be a church that reaches the lost, that’s what we must do.  In order to engage the community, in order to reach the lost, we must not commit ourselves to simply worship on Sunday mornings, but to be in the community, to talk to people, to engage the disengaged.

So who are we?

There are a couple of opportunities you are going to have to serve with us in the coming month.

First:  Next Thursday, September 30, we will be serving water and cookies at the Homecoming parade.  You can watch the parade in our parking lot and help us distribute water and cookies.  This is an easy way to engage people.  Come help us out Thursday during the Homecoming parade.

Second:  We are planning a block party on Saturday, October 30.  We are going to cook out, have live music, and invite anyone we meet to come have a good time with us.  We hope to meet a lot of new people and get the message of who we are into the community.

If we want to be this kind of church, we have to make the effort to do it.  Come join us for these two events.  Invite your friends!

Hope to see you there!

One Response to Who Are We

  1. Clent Wyatt says:

    The other week, Tim mentioned that as the church in America, we tend to put our country before God. I agree, and sadly I think there is more to it. God is actually way down on our list. We put financial responsibility before God, we put education before God, we put our spouses and our children before God. And we worship Christ who called his followers away from jobs, away from their family, and even away from a bed of their own to lay down in. We say to the younger generation the truth that Christ is all you need but what we live tells them you need Christ plus…
    Sometimes the reason churches are inefective is because we haven’t conformed to Christ but instead conformed him to us. A professor of mine asked, “How do you know if the Christ you have in your head is the real one?” His answer was,”If the Christ in your mind does not lead to crucifixion, then he is false.” Christ was crucifiable (not that he did anything wrong, but that what He lived out and taught was in direct opposition to the religious and the secularists). Christ told us to take up our cross and follow him and that if the world hated him it will hate us. Paul told us to die to ourselves, and John says, “Anyone who claims to be intimate with God ought to live the same kind of life Jesus did” (1 John 2:6 the message). So my question is, “Are we crucifiable?”
