Greetings to you all
The caring team of friends, serving in Cafe Liberty make our church’s warm welcome stronger. How blessed we’ve been by those who step in to serve. For coffee enthusiasts or for those who prefer hot tea or cocoa, it’s truly a pleasure to meet and greet. So often the discovery of the best gifts in life comes through the connections we make in lively fellowship.
Mission Inspired by Worship
“Go and make disciples of all nations…”
As we share in mission and ministry opportunities together, a goal at the center of discipleship is to discover the ways God’s Word empowers mission as an overflow of worship.
The connection between the two is at the heart of the Great Commission. With disciples worshiping the risen Lord, the global urgency for giving His good news gripped their hearts and guided their plans.
Our circumstances seem so different that we may easily miss this connection. Worshipers of the living Lord are in mission training. There are no secret saints, cloistered monks or “bless-me” gatherings in the book of Acts. That template for missional vision arose from worshiping congregations, large and small. At every phase of a disciple’s life, these two factors flow in tandem: Worship and mission. Both are essential. Neither can be postponed for a more convenient time. Living freely and faithfully for Christ are callings that are woven together by the golden threads of worship and mission.
Obstacles of many kinds can feel overwhelming. One of the honors of being “brothers and sisters in Christ” is the powerful reality that our joint venture in worship and mission is stronger than any human force. We are, in Christ Jesus, joined in an elevated calling. It rises above the culture even as we step boldly into the fray, to be light bearers in the darkest spaces of human experience.
These words of Jesus prevail over the storm of our crisis-engulfed world: “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life.”
In small and large acts of mission, His light breaks through. At each turning point in life and in the regular work that awaits us each day, the empowering gift of God’s grace prevails.
