Spirit of Mission
This Sunday will be one worship service at 10:00am and it will be a follow-up to last week’s Mission Sunday. I will admit that last Sunday was a bit overwhelming as I walked from project to project, at least those taking place at the church. There was a spirit of joy that was contagious, an overall spirit of “team” that was well beyond my expectations when dreaming up this crazy idea, and a spirit of mission that defined the day.
Yet not everyone was able to see the other projects, or even hear about what was done. Therefore, this Sunday will be a time where team members from each team talk about what they did, what they experienced, and how they felt their project contributed to our first Mission Sunday and to the work of Christ beyond our doors. It will be a kind of blended service with praise songs, hymns, and even some special music.
Also, come prepared to bless the Birthday Kits and “Days for Girls” kits, and to walk the property asking God’s blessing on each of the outdoor projects. Following our outdoor excursion will be a closing prayer and a good old-fashioned United Methodist potluck. So bring food, bring that same spirit from last week, bring your stories, and your heart for worship. To prepare please read again Philippians 2:1-5.
