How do you define the people of God without a space, a corporate gathering, or organized programs of ministry? This season has been one that has left us feeling disconnected from each other, from vision, maybe even from the purposes of God in our life. We need to look no further than to the word of God that shows God's people were never defined by a place, but by His presence and purpose in worship, community, and mission. From cover to cover the scripture speaks of a people who through trial and scattering TOGETHER sought God's presence and His purposes. TOGETHER through acts of CARE for their communities and through sending out missionaries to start and strengthen churches expressed God's CARE for all peoples. They sought the welfare of the city, fed the hungry, clothed the poor, visited those in prison, shared the gospel, and supported their brothers and sisters in need. Motivated by the Gospel, they were moved to CARE.
Today, we continue God's working as His people. We look back to connect to what He has done and we look forward toward each of His promises. TOGETHER we are not disconnected, we are of one mind, one heart, one mission. TOGETHER WE CARE for OUR COMMUNITY and TOGETHER WE CARE for THE NATIONS. TOGETHER WE CARE.
