We are currently in a season of deep prayer and introspection looking back at our journey of a full decade and seeking to discern a clear sense of God's leading for our future. We beleive that God is equipping and preparing people who will join us as we seek to replace the busyness that can distract us from listening to God with a clear vision of our distinct mission. We are passionate about honoring God by being a light and a beacon in the community where we worship as well as the communities in which we work and live and far places around the globe.
We just completed a sermon series of the book of Acts. We learned of the commissioning of the followers of Christ to be witnesses both at home amongst their own people and outside their community to the uttermost parts of the earth. We saw the timid and weak disciples become bold and empowered. The miraculous transformation of Saul, the man most committed to oppose the Way of Christ into Paul the apostle who lived to testify the gospel of the grace of Jesus has inspired us in fresh ways. This study has reminded us that the ways of God are so much higher than ours. Detours and distractions, persecution, and imprisonment all become platforms for the witness of God's love. We long for God to continue revealing his "acts" through this humble congregation.
The people of Concord Church are on a journey of faith . We have come to understand that being a community on the move is not an obstacle to becoming what we are ultimately meant to be but this is our God given identity. We have become certain that even when we have a permanent building that we should never lose the heart that we are on a journey. The church is the base camp not the destination. It is the place to reconnect, be fed, rest, equipped and sent out into the world.
If you are not already a part of Concord Church please, come join us on this exciting and challenging faith journey.
In Christ's Love,
Reverend Ginny Teitt
