Maybe you’ve played...the church hand picture game before: “Here is the Church. Here is the steeple. Open the doors and see all the people.” It’s such a cute thing to teach kids about God…except for the fact the Bible doesn’t speak of the Church in this way! The Church is not and never has been the building…or the steeple…or the doors. The Church IS THE PEOPLE. With over 114 occurrences of the word church in the New Testament scriptures, how many of these references do you think are to a building? That’s right, not even one. The reason is simple: Jesus didn’t come to suffer and die for drywall, carpet and stained glass…He died for people like you and me as well as for people beyond the walls.

This is why…we’re thinking it's time to get back to the basics this fall (especially as we prepare to renovate and expand our campus facilities) and picture Church as so much more than an hour or two every weekend. What if we all started to see Church as a 24/7 thing with words and actions in response to time spent in Jesus’ presence through worship? What if the Church left the building? Join us over the coming weeks for this important worship series and upcoming community serve event on October 6 we’ve entitled The Church Has Left The Building. May we all prepare to be mobilized through God’s Word to serve and share in Jesus’ name!

THE CHURCH HAS LEFT THE BUILDING SERVE EVENT

On Saturday morning October 6, immediately following our ONE Legacy Project Groundbreaking that will begin at 9:00 AM, we will be going out into our community to serve as the Church with the love of Jesus! Imagine the impact of hundreds of people of all ages going out to multiple sites to serve those in need with compassion in Jesus' name! We have been working with our area mission partners to secure over ten different project sites in Rochester, Pontiac and Detroit.  Want to learn more and get signed up?
