Our mission leads us to be and to share the good news of Jesus Christ!

A Chance Encounter

After taking communion I encountered a couple seated in the chairs, heads bowed, hands clasped together, and one praying over the other. Changing direction, I headed to the prayer candle table. My prayers of thanksgiving were: that people had been led to pause to turn burdens over to the power of God; that folks had been fed at 11:11 worship that day both with a meal from the kitchen and also a filling of the Spiritual, our daily Bread at the Lord’s table; and grateful blessing for faithful givers who support our mission and ministry. What a beautiful reminder of what the church should be: believers learning together, breaking bread together, and practicing the love and care for one another Jesus expects of us. I am still touched as I recall being witness to the couple “being and sharing” the good news in action. Acts 2:42 (DLNT), “Now they were devoting themselves to the teaching of the apostles and to fellowship, to the breaking of the bread and to prayers.”
