Yesterday in his call to worship, Jason read a brief note that had been passed on to him regarding church attendance and participation. It struck me as incredibly important, so I am going to post it here (giving proper credit to the author). Please prayerfully consider how you can be an active participant in our church body!
“As church attendance numbers fade across the nation and online services become very convenient it’s important to remember why church attendance for you and your family matters so much.
You can’t serve from your sofa. You can’t have community of faith from your sofa. You can’t experience the power of a room full of believers worshipping together on your sofa.
Christians aren’t consumers. We are contributors. We don’t watch. We engage. We give. We sacrifice. We encourage. We pray by laying hands on the hurting. We do life together.
The church needs you.
And you need the church.”
