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!
