We started 2016 focusing on how we can each experience true Freedom in Christ and experience the abundant life God has intended for each of us. Then we dove into James' letter that spells out how we can best live out our Faith in action. Our Faith actually Works if we're willing to participate with God's design.
As we move into August, it's time to consider how we can best share the Good News with our community. Instead of just going to church, it's time to BE the church. And I believe that we are most effective in being Good News people when we bring Good News in the form of intentional acts of kindness done in Jesus' name.
We'll be looking at what Jesus has said about us: we are to be artesian springs of refreshing water, the light of the world, and the salt of the earth. What does that mean as we go about living here in the Methow Valley?
On Sunday, August 21st, we're going to put this into practice in a radical way. On that morning we will NOT be gathering within our building -- we will be GOING to serve our community. And we won't be doing this alone: Cascade Bible Church will be serving right alongside us! Later that day we'll all gather for a picnic potluck to share stories and celebrate God's love.
More details will be coming, but for now we'd like your help in our preparations:
