On Sunday, November 24th, we won’t “attend” church, we will remind ourseelves that we ARE the church! We are the hands and feet of Jesus in our local community. Ekklesia means ‘assembly’ or ‘gathering’ or ‘congregation.’ As you can see, the word refers to a body of people, not to a building. Interestingly, our English word for church is derived from the German ‘kirche,’ which generally refers to the building itself. Do you see the difference? One is a place and the other is people. One is brick and mortar and the other is flesh and blood.
We will have several tracks to choose from, from light construction of a community playground, to letter writing, to a youth and teen track, there are several ways to serve in the local community.
