This has to be one of the most encouraging and exciting posts that I’ve read in a long time!
The post is about some churches (including Chris’ church) who have decided to do something different on Sundays four times per year:
After an encouraging meeting with other church leaders last night we are going to attempt to do something about this. We want our love of God to be made known for all in how we love upon those in our local community. To help others realize that this a part of His church’s “DNA” (cf. Matthew 28:19-20) we are going to begin going outside of our walls together. We are going to serve our community as a local body on the months that have a 5th Sunday. Those days our worship service will actually be service–ministering to the needs of others outside of our own four walls.
What a great idea! Chris said that he got the idea from a friend who lives near Philadelphia.
You might say, “Well, sure, but that’s only four times per year.” Yes, but it’s more than 95+% of churches are doing.
Have you ever heard of churches doing this or something similar? Have you ever been part of something like this?
