We Care

We sent around 100 missionaries into Milledgeville today to let our community know that God's Church cares about them. It took the form of mowing, trimming, weeding, cleaning, painting, a car wash and acts of generosity and kindness. We wore t-shirts saying, "Northridge Cares" and put sweat equity into helping our city. New friendships were made and stories are pouring in of the impact on the people and organizations we were able to benefit. 

My hope is that this is not a simple calendar event that brings us together and temporarily energizes a crowd. It should stir up in us a desire to be intentionally missional as a Church. This isn't a bucket list item, but a way of life as God's people.
