The Call to Community

"When God calls us to himself, he calls us to his church, to a purpose bigger than ourselves. This may sound shocking to some, but biblically, living for God means living for his church. There is a glory in the presence of Jesus Christ, seen when believers come together, that will necessarily be missing in an individual pursuit of God. When the gospel is turned from a community-centered faith to an individual-centered faith ('Jesus would have died for me if I had been the only one!'), we eclipse much of its power and meaning."

-- from Authentic Faith by Gary Thomas

What did you think of this past weekends music? Did you think it was appropriate to have a student led worship? Do you think BCC is starting to move together in a positive direction?

I thought it was very appropriate being it was promotion weekend. I also think they did an awesome job.

I agree. Being promotion weekend for the kids and students, it was appropriate for the students to show their talents. I believe we have done that on promotion weekend in the past.
