Church Life in Action (with a little bit of homework)

Church life is almost a living, breathing thing. It goes through seasons, change and all kinds of metaphorical weather. The thing that keeps it alive and vibrant is when we each bring ourselves to it. 

For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.
— Romans 12:4-5

With that in mind, we have a few "action items" that are yours to dig into in over the next few weeks:

  1. Sunday's Challenge... send a note to someone who has been a Priscilla or Aquila to you. Thank them for the investment. Exercise the gift of encouragement and let it ripple out and impact the Kingdom this week! And don't forget to be looking for those opportunities to be Priscilla or Aquila to someone in your life.
  2. Water Baptism... this significant church life event is happening on August 13. Are you ready to be baptized? Just hit reply and let us know. Already been baptized? Plan to be there on the 13th to celebrate with your church family!
  3. Cross the Bridge... that's how we've been talking about giving your time and talent to the Freedom Community Centre. We specifically need piano teachers this fall but maybe God is putting something else on your heart. We want you to link arms with us and cross the bridges that we've built into the community. Let's see what God can do through us!

I encourage you to prayerfully consider what your next "action item" might be. It's so fun to do life together with all of you. I am highly anticipating what God might have for us in our next season of church life.

In Christ,
P. Tracy

This Sunday...

Elisha is like "Part 2" of my previous message. When you look at what he did it will totally make sense. Not only was he Elijah's apprentice, but Elisha asked for a double portion of his master's spirit. When you read the first few chapters of 2 Kings you have to ask yourself, "Is this coincidence?" It looks like Elijah all over again. It seems that the example that was set for Elisha had a lasting impact. What about us? Have we been deeply impacted by what we have been shown?

See you Sunday,
