From the Pastor....
Church isn’t just a place you go on Sunday.
Church isn’t just an organization of which you become a member.
Church isn’t just a place you come to receive what you need for your own personal faith. Church is a family.
Church is family, in every sense of the word family.
We have a father. We were born into this family through the waters of baptism. We have brothers and sisters to whom we are accountable and for whom we are responsible.
We are blessed, even in our conflict and we are committed to work through our struggles. When something happens to one of our family it happens to all. We laugh together, cry together, pray together and cling to a common hope and purpose.
We are the family of Christ.
In times when the church is the norm of a culture, it’s easy to lose sight of this and find our comfort and fellowship in other places. But when times turn to more like they are today, the church as family becomes more and more important to the faithful.
This month I give thanks for the gift of His church here at Zion. I thank Him for this family he has provided us. And I look forward to our future together as the Lord provides opportunities for us to add to our family… the future in faith.
