This captures my imagination: Jesus once said that the gates of hell would not prevail against his church. Wow! And the church is on the move! But what is this church Jesus speaks of? What is it’s clearest, simplest form? How would you recognize it when you see it? How is it moving?
At it’s most basic level, you get the church whenever a group comes together for worship, discipleship, and mission, deepening their relationship with God, with one another, and spurring one another on to love and good deeds. That’s Up-In-and-Out. That’s the church.
At LoveFirst Coast, we say connection to the church is needed for life on mission. The way we connect varies, but finding a way to connect is essential. Without connection, support, prayer, guidance, and mutual encouragement, our life and mission can drift away from the purposes the Lord has for us. So what do we do?
For now, let’s gather and worship God. We’ll look at scripture for insight. We will pray for one another. We’re still being careful about Corona, but it is time to get together. Meet at the Alexander house at 320 South Buck Board for outdoor worship. It’s easy to maintain our distance. Please bring a picnic supper for your family at 6:30 if you’d like to eat with us. We will celebrate communion (with health in mind).
Come and be encouraged and equipped for life on mission!
