Seeing and Serving Christ in Our Community

Seeing and Serving Christ in Our Community

Important Discernment Series Planned for January-February 2015

Inasmuch as you have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, you have done it unto me. Matthew 25:40  

January 25, February 8, 15, and 22   4:30-6:00 p.m.

A special video and discussion series during Lent, 2014 entitled Jesus, Inc.  stimulated lively thought and conversation about what we as Christians are called by Christ to do in response to the needs of the poor and marginalized in our society. As a result of the discussions, many attendees responded, “Yes, but what are we going to do?”

As a next step, a series of programs entitled “Seeing and Serving Christ in Our Community” is planned for Sunday evenings in January and February 2015. In this series, we will examine facts concerning poverty, education and health care in our community and seek to discern our own response as a faith community and as individuals.

Four programs are planned. The first three will feature presentations by local speakers followed by small group responses. In the fourth session, we will use a group discernment process to determine whether we hear a call for action either as individuals or as a group. Mark your calendars now and don’t miss these important ground-breaking sessions.
