A taste of FAITH, a touch of LAUGHTER.
I like my church.
It’s a new church, a fairly new church plant in my current town. A lot of people much younger than myself, young families and many young kids, which is refreshing.
There is no building. It started in a home and now people meet in the community hall, portable everything, fold away chairs and tables etc. Shared food and fellowship.
Our pastor is a young man with a heart for the Lord and for people. He preaches the truth in a dialogical fashion, so the congregation gets to participate. He uses a whiteboard and draws interesting things to illustrate some point of his message. He’s firmly and solidly based in the truth of God’s word.
The assistant pastor is also a young man who is on fire for the Lord with a passion. His Australian twang and boldness, along with his particular style of music, make for surprising presentations.
Our church breaks into smaller groups, called Gospel Communities, during the week where we share bible truth together and try to apply these truths to our lives. Friendships are built and prayers shared around tea/coffee and some goodies.
During the better weather, our church gets outside for meetings, shared food and fellowship and camping opportunities. The church is mission and outreach minded, which is a good thing. We all need to be sharing the good news of the gospel.
This morning I took a friend from my building along to church and she enjoyed her visit. I had to explain the way we do communion, because it’s a little different. The wine and bread are left on a table and people go when they are ready, individually or in groups, as friends, as couples or as families, and partake of the elements and pray alone or together. My friend and I enjoyed communion together.
I hope y’all have a church you enjoy…….feel free to share below!
