BE the church

Last night, Tracy had a great conversation with a young mom. This winter they moved into the Lansing area from out of state. Their family has been coming to Faith Church for about 2 months. They immediately made the decision to try a HomeGroup.

But then came tough times. She had to have surgery. Things were stressful for their family. That's when their brand new HomeGroup kicked into action as the Community of Christ. Meals were provided. Assitance was offered. Love was communicated. And they were overwhelmed with a sense of belonging.

They got a taste of why the people of Faith Church are so special. It is not enough to just "come to church". It's about learning to "be the church".

I am so thankful for our HomeGroups and their leaders...y'all rock!
