October 21st marks the one-year anniversary since NewStory Church launched.
Can you believe it?
Now these last 365 days have certainly showcased a mighty God who delights in making all things new! Everything from fundamental changes in our name & vision … to physical relocations (two, if you’re counting!) and building renovations … to the incredible, record number of baptisms symbolizing life change … this past year has been one for the books and cause for so much celebration!
All this has me thinking:
Rather than just throwing a party for ourselves, what if we threw one for our beloved city as well? What if we cleaned her streets and fed her hungry? What if we loved her homeless? And then, what if we hosted a celebration on our anniversary and invited all our neighbors … all in Jesus’ name, no strings attached.
Friends, for the next few weeks we have a unique opportunity to PRACTICE what we PREACH by getting out of our comfy church SEATS and into the STREETS of LA to serve. More specifically, after each Sunday message, we will have a number of practical opportunities to put our faith into action as We Love LA, Jesus style, through serving the least, last and lost!
So excited we get to do this together!
We Love LA … because Jesus First Loved Us
