Faith In Action Sunday – What You Need to Know
This Sunday June 8th we’re canceling all of our weekend worship services and sending our entire church out into our community to help and serve those in need. Basic premise – “Don’t just go to church – BE the church!“
I cannot wait for this day when we have a few hundred people working at a children’s home near red top mountain, doing mini-home improvement makeovers for single moms in our area, working at a Children’s Home, & doing some projects around our church.
We will mobilize a small army to head out into our community to serve in real, practical, & tangible ways. This is the model Jesus gave us – meet people’s physical needs & then the door is thrown wide open to begin meeting their spiritual needs. What a great way to demonstrate what Jesus is ALL about – by GOING, DOING, & BEING what Jesus has commanded us to.
In, addition to YOU joining us for Faith in Action Sunday – I hope that you will invite your friends, neighbors, & co-workers to come join you. Get them involved in helping others & making a difference in our community. A church doing this kind of thing does not compute for most people & blows them away. Who knows? Maybe this is the kind of thing that will resonate with those you know who are disconnected from God & His church. Maybe this will “change the way THEY think about church” & help them get connected. Give it a try!
