“When he [Jesus] saw the crowds, he had compassion on them because they were confused and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. He said to his disciples, “The harvest is great, but the workers are few. So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields.” Matthew 9:36-38 (New Living Translation)
- We believe that connection to a nurturing church family is a common need to promote sustainable spiritual development.
- We believe this is true both for those who have decided to follow Jesus, and for those who are not currently following.
- We recognize that our church may not be the best “fit” for everyone, and we are OK with that because we are only a part of the whole church in this community.
- We are making a list of our unchurched friends and family, and we are committed to praying that they will find the nurturing church family that is a good “fit” for them, whether with us or elsewhere.
