Somebody sent me an email yesterday evening with a note of encouragement regarding our Faith In Action Sunday.

Part of what she wrote was: “Our church shines when we serve together, Dave.”

I could not agree more.

You guys were awesome. You were high energy. Great attitudes. Willing to do whatever needed to be done – in the name of Christ!

As one of your pastors I was very proud of you, in a non-sinful sort of way! ;)

And we all understand – community service isn’t to be relegated to one day per year! It’s to be a lifestyle. We don’t need ACC to plan something for us.  Each of us, as followers of Christ, must be initiating service opportunities – in our neighborhoods, schools, work places, etc.

I know you already do this. Let’s do it more. Let’s excel in serving.

Don’t just go to church – be the church!
