Do you recognize the rhyme that the picture above this week’s Scripture verse represents? It represents a rhyme my grandmother taught me when I was a very young boy. Give up? It goes like this, “Here is the church, here is the steeple, open it up and see all the people.” If you were to open many steepled churches today, you wouldn’t see many people. And while there is a decline, in our country, of the number of Christians, as a percentage of the entire population, there is not a decline in the number of those claiming to be “Christian.” So where are all the people then? And does it really matter as long as you’ve got Jesus? Well, our passage this week certainly does indicate that it matters. In fact, it matters a great deal. The church is how God cares for you if you are a Christian.
Come find out how and why God cares for you in that relationship this Sunday morning at 10:30. Also, come join us for Sunday School at 9:15. We have many new classes this year- something for every stage and age of your Christian journey. Everyone is welcome!
