Kick-off for WikiWorship

We would like to invite you to our Sunday Evening Service that is called Common Table.  This will be on Sunday nights at 5:30pm in our fellowship hall at Warren's Grove.  We have gone out into the community and gathered questions that real people are asking.  During the worship service we will then answer those questions.  This is called WikiWorship.  This is based on the infamous Wikipedia ------ where anyone can edit the content of Wikipedia.  Here, you will be able to edit the content of the worship service with your questions.  This is a safe environment for us to be able to look deeply into the questions that have plagued humanity for thousands of years. 

The kick-off will be Sunday, September 23rd at 5:30pm in our fellowship hall.  It will then continue September 30th; October 7th & 14th.  

There will be child care provided during each worship service.  Also, there will be a meal provided after the worship service as well.  Feel free to keep up with this blog, and you can look further into the questions that come about weekly. 

If you have any further questions feel free to contact us at:  or feel free to call us at 336.592.3400.

You're invited to fun and Hot Dogs!

You and your family are invited to come on out to Huck Sansbury Park this coming Sunday, September 16th at 5:30pm.  We are going to have hot dogs and lots of great fun hanging out at the park.  Feel free to invite anyone who would like to come.

We will also be collecting questions for our upcoming WikiWorship services.  What we do is we gather questions that real people have about God, about the church, and about life.  This can be a question that they have never had the chance to ask, a question that they have never had the guts to ask, or a question that they have never gotten an adequate answer on.  We then will be answering these questions during our Sunday evening worship service starting Sunday, September 23rd at 5:30pm.  This will go on for four weeks.

In the mean time, if you would like to send us a question we are beginning to receive those now.  You can send them to my email address at or you can post them at the end of this blog entry.  Thank you so much for your help.

Hebrews 3.1-6

This week we will be focusing on Hebrews 3.1-6.  Like you know we are focusing on the book of Hebrews during September, October, and November.  You can find out more information about that by following this link.  In Hebrews 3.1-6 we learn that Jesus is the great builder ----- and that we are God's house.  The writer says in v6: "Christ, however, was faithful over God's house as a son, and we are his house."  This is the congregation he is writing to, the faithful witnesses through the thousands of years, but also us ----- the church.  Jesus was faithful to build us ----- but now there has to be a response from us ----- now we are to be faithful to him.  At the end of v6 the writer says: "if we hold firm the confidence and the pride that belong to hope."  This means that we have to hold firm to Christ Jesus ----- that we are to "pay greater attention to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away from it" [2.1] ------ that we are to hold fast to what "God spoke to our ancestors in many and various ways by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by a Son" [1.1-2].  We are called to persevere till the very end ----- holding fast to the author and finisher of our faith. 

In this we learn the severe need that the world has for the church.  But also, the severe need the church has to be filled with God's grace so that we can truly be the church.  This church is the community that Christ offered up himself to die for.  This church is the community that God sent his Son to redeem so that it can participate in the reconciliation of all things to God.  This church is God's house.  But also, this church is in dire need to live into this commissioning.  We can see that the church being the church is of vital importance to God.  For the church is to be that "place" where Christ makes all things new.  Where the Holy Spirit will change the hearts and minds of people by bringing us through the death waters and giving us the mind of Christ.  My brothers and sisters ------ let us be the church that is God's house in the earth!
