Several days ago, I posted about how the church helped my family move. We enjoy helping one another with things like packing up and moving, but that’s not the only reasons we gather. Actually, we have one day of “official” meetings, Sunday. We meet together Sunday morning and Sunday evening. But, what about other days of the week?
Saturday: Our family went to a movie and dinner with out-of-town visitors (my wife’s sister and her husband) and some of our church family.
Sunday: We gathered together with the church Sunday morning and Sunday evening.
Monday: Some of the church family came to our house for pizza and fellowship.
Tuesday and Wednesday: My wife and children went to the local pool with some of our church family.
Thursday: Our family went to a young friend’s baseball game, then to a Bible study.
Friday: My wife and daughter helped some of our church family do some work on their house.
Some people would not call this “church” – except for Sunday and perhaps the Bible study on Thursday. However, God has called us to walk this life together. That must encompass more than planned meetings.
How do you gather with the church?
