Governor Abbott’s executive order from Monday 27 Apr 20 officially paves the way for us to have true church again. We will keep his suggestion to maintain social distancing guidelines until Texas can get into Phase 2 in a few weeks. This means that we will have worship at 10:30 AM on Sunday, but no Sunday School or catechism. We will continue to NOT have Wednesday night prayer until we can get into Phase 2. As of this writing, there have been zero cases of this plague hitting any of our people; you might remember the word that God told us on March 22, in which the Psalmist declared that “no plague will come near your tent.” We have much to rejoice over, and it is time for the Body of Christ to come back together and magnify his name. We can be careful and wise….but we can also be together, as God intended. We will practice social distancing, and if you feel better wearing a mask, you may do that too!
“It is appalling that the most segregated hour of Christian America is eleven o’clock on Sunday morning.” -Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
How can we call ourselves by Christ’s name and continue to embrace segregation in our times of worship? Christ came to reconcile man to God, and in doing so, He also reconciled man to man. Given this fact, how can we continue to be so cavalier about racial reconciliation in the house of God?
We refuse to continue the regrettable status quo of the single-race church. We are committed to racial reconciliation—worshiping together, as God Almighty intended. If you’re looking for a place where racial healing is taking place, rather than just being spoken about, won’t you join us?
OUR VIEW OF DISCIPLESHIP
If you’re not growing in the knowledge of the Lord, then you’re leaving out an important part of what God intended for you. Christ designed the Church to be the place where we learn the deep things of the Lord. Our desire for you isn’t just that you get “the feels,” but rather that you also engage in constant learning about the God you confess.
Often, as you grow in the Lord in knowledge and maturity, you will have serious questions. Sometimes, you even show up with hard questions! It is unfortunate that many in Christianity have implied that no Christian should have doubts or questions. But we think that’s normal—and we want to help you find answers.
Bring your tough questions. Bring your doubts. Bring your unresolved crisis. Bring your baggage. A family is just the place for this, and we’d like to take the journey with you.
If you’re trying to grow in Christ by yourself, you’re doing this wrong. Why not be adopted into a family who will love you no matter what? Why not
