Sunday: Hope of Life Joins Our Liturgy!

June 8th, 2018 | John Chandler

Things are going to be quite different in liturgy this Sunday, and I couldn’t be more excited. Our new friends from Hope of Life Church are joining us for Sunday Liturgy.

We began 2018 by prayerfully articulating our “Mission and Methods”, a statement about why we do what we do, and how we do it. One of our methods is about learning and worshiping with people not like us. It says:

“We seek opportunities to expand beyond a fellowship of sameness to reflect the breadth of God’s kingdom.”

God immediately answered our prayer!

Hope of Life is a new community in Austin made up primarily of Congolese refugees. We are partnering with them as they take the initial steps of forming a church community,  but we expect to learn a great deal from them along the way as well.

Here’s what you can expect:

A note about kids

We will have two summer classes: the nursery and the pre-k class. We will welcome their children as well in our classrooms.

I joined Hope of Life for their service last Sunday. I lost count of how many times I thought: “It’ll be fun to share this experience with all of Mustard Seed.”

This week, it happens!

See you Sunday.
