This Sunday, we start a new series entitled “Church Is….” Each Sunday we will declare different aspects of what the church is and our theme this week is “Church is Missional.” I am excited about this new series. The word Church is derived from the Greek word ekklesia which means a called-out assembly.
George Barna stated that “We are not called to go to church. We are called to be the church.” This Saturday, we would like to invite you to “be the church” in Hong Kong as we collectively Bless the City.
Join us at Union Church at 9:30AM, for a blessing, before you are called-out to:
- visit the elderly through the HK Church Network for the Poor (HKCNP)
- play games with asylum seekers and refugees with HK Society for Asylum Seekers and Refugees, founded by a Union member
- create Art in Tamar Park
- reach out to men and women in the red-light district with Sons and Daughters and Amber Foundation – packing airline kits, writing cards, hearing a talk
- prayer walk for Teens Key as they work with vulnerable young woman and girls in the red light district of Mong Kok and YMT.
No experience necessary. Family friendly. There is still space, please contact Monte if you are interested
Additionally, this Sunday the Missions Committee invites you to consider giving to Sons and Daughters as they raise funds for a drop in center. A special offering will be taken.
We are the Church,
