Can you see yourself as God sees you?

Can you see the church as God sees the church?

Can you see the mission as God sees the mission?

 

Rev. Seltz challenged us with these questions.  As we process our responses, can we see our Connection Group (CG)  as an "in flesh" answer? 

 

We are sinners made saints… standing with each other in Word and sacraments against the devil, the world, our flesh… celebrating God's mission victory as we bring the Gospel to those in our daily lives.

 

Our CG logo sums up this same strategy: 

  • With "Christ of the Cross" connecting us, we gather in homes as CG to remind each other of how God sees believers and how God sees the church
  • We pray together and brainstorm ways to connect with our neighbors and serve our community
  • Then we leave our homes to GO OUT on Christ's mission… to love, speak truth, help meet needs, bring freedom, display hope and peace 

 

Raise up in me this fall, Lord, a deeper desire and commitment to grow in Your Word, to GO OUT of my comfort zones, to accompany You on Your mission to seek and save those who are lost!  Amen
