Happy Monday, friends!
We had a great discussion last night about salvation: What is it? How does it happen? What does it feel like? To continue the conversation, check out a post from one of my favorite authors/bloggers, Rachel Held Evans. It’s called, I Believe in Works-Based Salvation. What do you think about Rachel’s ideas on salvation?
In other (very exciting!) news, the house church community has decided to start a plot in the Newtown neighborhood community garden. We will be growing food together and plan to give it to families/organizations who really need it. For the next couple of Sundays, we will collect financial offerings to get us started in purchasing a plot, seeds and other materials that we need. So far, we have collected $4.25 and it costs $40 a year to have a plot. If everyone brings a couple of dollars next week, we should have enough for a plot!
Also, to help the garden succeed we could use the following items:
5 gallon buckets
Empty egg cartons
You can bring those items with you to the first work-day, which will be mid-morning on April 6th. If you have questions about the house church or the community garden, email Brittany at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stay tuned for information about this upcoming Sunday’s topic and details about our Easter Celebration (which will include lots of food and fun)!
