“‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ i 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”
Over the last 6 months I have been working with the Eaton First Church of God pastor, Jonathan Grubbs on a collective event of combined worship and service to our community. I am incredibly excited about our churches coming together to worship God and serve as the hands and feet of Christ…together on a Sunday morning. The purpose of this specific morning of worship and serving is to honor Jesus Christ and reflect Him in action by serving in our community.
Therefore, on Sunday morning, May 21, instead of meeting here at our facility, we will gather at the Eaton Performing Arts Center across the street with the congregation of the Eaton First Church of God. (No services will be held at our facility that morning.) We will gather for worship and then head out into the community for various spring clean-up projects in public spaces and private homes. For those who are unable to physically participate there will be a prayer service after the worship, to pray for our community.
While we understand that this is something different than our normal Sunday morning, and will require some sacrifice, we believe it will be worth giving up a little of our own comfort in order to love our neighbors. I encourage you to live out your faith in Jesus Christ be being a part of this great gathering. As I shared a little over a month ago in a sermon, let’s be “Salt and Light” in this way to our community.
