This Sunday we will receive new members into the church as well as have a baptism. People come into a faith community and experience grace, find place to belong, and the space to discern their purpose for ministry. That is what Peter encountered as he met the risen Christ at the lakeshore. Jesus continues to meet us and offer that grace, belonging, and purpose.
As Christ's body we are to offer that to people who do not have a church home. God is calling each of us to reach out to them. Please be in prayer. How is God asking you to reach out? I look forward to worshiping this you this Sunday.
Yours in Christ,
