Hebrews 11: 1 (NRSV)
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.
With the strengthening Holy Spirit, we hope in the life that Jesus has for us to live. We have a confidence that when we “mess up” God is ready to forgive. We trust that salvation comes in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. We have a confidence that this salvation is for everyone. We believe that God is love and this love is meant to be shared in our actions, convictions, and words. We believe that God has called us together to be the body of Christ as La Porte Community Church here and now.
Since God has brought us together, we are entrusted to live our faith in honest and dynamic ways. We share our time to teach Sunday School classes, answer the phone, prepare bulletins, and learn music. We share our talents to lead worship and committees, decorate for special occasions, sing and play instruments, and lead ministry projects. We share our treasures together so that ministries like mission, worship, and involvement in the community can happen. We do this because our faith gives us a type of belief that together we are way more than we are alone.
As active participants in God’s kingdom, come this Sunday to be part of Commitment Sunday. Make a fresh and bold statement that LPCC is up to some great things and it is together we will make a huge impact for God’s kingdom now!
Grace and peace,
Husband, father, minister, child of God, follower of Jesus Christ writing in the context of La Porte Community Church
