We have truly enjoyed sharing a meal together after our Sunday worship gathering during our first two and a half years of Hartford City Church. Our Feast team has done a tremendous job of planning and providing meals for us every week. This summer we are going to shift and make some changes in how we seek to build community together around meals. During the summer months of June, July, and August, we will be having a meal only once a month after church. This change will give people an opportunity to get together with family and friends on Sunday afternoons in their homes, at a park or at any of the fabulous restaurants in Hartford. After the summer months, we will have a feast team meal at church only on special occasions as we are looking at new ways of providing opportunities for fellowship and community at Hartford City Church.
Going to church is an opportunity to connect with God and with others as we seek to follow the call of Jesus Christ to Love All,
Serve All and Welcome All. Many people say, "I don't need to go to church to connect with God." That is absolutely true! We should
connect with God in our daily lives all throughout the week. We do this through the Bible, prayer, worship music, and conversations with
our brothers and sisters in Christ. However, there is a unique experience of God's presence and power when we gather every Sunday morning
to worship Jesus Christ. Often times if we don't connect with God on Sunday at church, we won't connect with God during the week. We also
need to build relationships with one another. This community life happens during week, but it also happens on Sunday mornings. To summarize,
we need to go to church every week AND we need to live out our Christian faith during the week. When we are engaged in both, we will grow
even more in love and power.
The writer of Hebrews says it well: And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. Hebrews 10:24-25 New International Version (NIV).
See you in Church this Sunday!
