You serve a God Who went BEYOND for you. Beyond all reason, beyond all expectation. Because that’s what grace does, and that’s Who God is.
But there are people all over the world that know absolutely nothing of this going-beyond, full-of-grace God. Nothing. It’s not because they don’t care, but because they don’t have an option. Where they are, there is no Bible, no church, no Christian friends. How would they know?
And the terrible truth is that they and their children will continue to live and die without hope until someone decides to go BEYOND for them.
It seems like a big ask–give something or go somewhere for someone I have never met? But when you really stop to consider what you have been given, then you realize that this is exactly the kind of love we should show. Because He loved us this way first.
Church, it is time to go BEYOND our normal Christian expectations. Go BEYOND our carefully-laid plans and budgets. Think BEYOND the material and see the eternal. Go BEYOND for the lost, just like Jesus did.
BEYOND OUR WALLS: Reaching Our City
When we stay within these walls, we cease to be the church. The church is made to go BEYOND. The church is a living, breathing, vibrant part of its community. The church stands on the front lines where there is need. The church is there to offer encouragement, help, and hope.
We have specific plans to go BEYOND our own property to show God’s love to Baltimore this year. Here are just a few ways to get involved, with more to come!
A series of special outreach days to help our city. We are already planning three for next this year, with more to come.Homeless Outreach: providing helpful personal essentials to those living on the streetsClean Up Project: making our community more beautiful by removing debris from a public spaceTeacher Appreciation: encouraging card and gifts for educators in our public school system
