Have you ever wondered, in the middle of the sermon, why you can’t just hit the pause button and ask a pertinent question? Have you ever come to the end of a good praise song or hymn, and wanted to ask what a particular word or phrase meant? Have you ever wondered, when we gather for worship, why we can’t just have a conversation on a topic? Have you ever wondered, when we have prayer in worship, why we can’t just talk to God – each of us, or maybe even all of us? Have you ever wondered why we can’t “do church” at 4:00 on a Sunday afternoon - in the gym - sharing a simple meal - singing to the Lord - learning more of God and His Word - dealing with questions of faith people really have?
This isn’t the way most of us were brought up “doing church.” But suppose there are some folks out there who have given up on the way we have traditionally “done church.” Imagine there are some beyond our walls with little background in theology, and yet are drawn to the notion of a God who loves them and cares about them in the actual living out of their days.
Would you take the time and spend the energy to create a worship space, and then invite people into that space, if it might be just the thing someone needs to come to Jesus (or maybe come back to Him)? If so, then join us on Sunday afternoon, January 28th, at 4:00 for a worship experience where no question is out-of-bounds.
“I have become all things to all people, that by all means I might save some. I do it all for the sake of the gospel, that I may share with them in its blessings.” 1 Corinthians 9:22-23
