Urgent Message:

By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another." - John 13:35

While having a conversation with a beloved brother in Christ, the need for a good first impression came up. Church family, how many of you chose to attend this congregation due to the warm greetings you received? Through many testimonies, I have heard that the love shown to our guests is what makes the return. Numbers aren't our motivation, please don't read into this wrongly. 

Loving people is our motivation! Please join us in greeting guests that attend our church. Connecting with them should be our top priority. We can all share the love of Christ, if we serve one another in the way. Don't leave it up to someone else. Otherwise, people may fall through the cracks. Take the initiative to love on one another and our guests every chance you get! This is what sets us apart! 

 

By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another." - John 13:35

 

Your brother in Christ, 

Pastor Ace
