This is basically a status update on my Church’s Won’t You Be Our Neighbor Program:
My church is in transition from Family Size to Pastoral Size
In short we are going from teensy-weensy to tiny sized congregation
and our farmer’s market has 100 people more a week averaging at about 350 ppl a week
Let there be wild rejoicing
But….its work. We are going to have to stretch and grow with these changes. I’m going to have to pray about how better to connect spiritually to the community, I need to discern how to provide the support that my (now overworked) volunteers need.
I compared it on Sunday to the cup that God promises us to be overflowing. Have you ever tried to drink out of a cup that is filled to the tippy-top? Its tricky and messy….but important
I think we are going to do it. We are going to be a church that is an actual community center.
I just have no idea how………….yet 😉
