I visited my first recently. It was warm and welcoming, however something was amiss. Why were the lead pastors not involved with the food ministry? Why was the outreach pastor so empty?
Their food ministry was pure and so worthy of praise. The church’s service was thought evoking and moving. However, the teaching pastor directed her pain at the congregation.
The music was the choice of the lead musician that did not allow the Holy Spirit to reach up into the rafters. The congregation was desiring a shift within them and it was quietly delivered even in the lacking environment.
Some of the sins of the church were on display in their members, but God was not mocked. They too were being healed.
No leadership and no board of elders to make the decisions on behalf of the congregation.
They love you Lord; make it their only desire.
