At our Team Building Day this afternoon, we explored ‘the perfect couple’ – not a Mr & Mrs quiz (though Garry and Julie did have to answer a range of questions, with others predicting their answers!)
The perfect couple we were really interested in was how our church life builds us up to fulfil Jesus’ Great Commission to go into all the world and make disciples of all nations. how our Sunday worship affects our Monday-Saturday living. We looked at how the Bible describes the church as a body (and thought about the diversity of the human body as well):
We looked at how each of us is vital to the work of the church and the diversity of ways we can serve God in the church, but we also explored our individual mission fields, looking at how we spend our time and how God wants to work in those ordinary areas of work, recreation and home to help us reach our communities.
We also prayed for people and situations in our mission fields, asking God to help us be witnesses in those areas.
Our thanks to Sarah Davey for her prayerful help in leading the session and her willingness to help us look at things in a different way and to all who came and participated so enthusiastically.
